Don't Believe Everything You See On Social Media

The message behind today's post is simple.

"Don't believe everything you see on social media"

I've posted a lot of positive content online recently which is great - but I also don't want you to be fooled by the idea of a "perfect lifestyle".

Because in simple terms, it doesn't exist... and if it does, then it definitely isn't me.

Several people have said to me recently "oh, you're so lucky!" and it really got me thinking...

No, I'm not.

In terms of my life and my disability, I chose to make the best out of a bad situation and I've worked hard for every little achievement along the way.

For the majority of people, social media is used to highlight the "best bits" of your day, but nobody really knows what goes on behind closed doors.

Take my blog for example. I use my social media pages to promote my website, as well as connecting with other like-minded people, by sharing experiences and exciting opportunities.

This is great, but most people often forget about how much hard work, time and effort goes into each post.

I'm not moaning, as I absolutely love what I do. Just don't call me "lucky" because I'm trying to achieve something with my life.

Back when I started this little adventure (2 years ago!), I had a vision of what I wanted to create. Even though I am so proud of how far I have come, I still have a long way to go.

To me, the word "lucky" is a bit of a cop out, because we all work hard behind the scenes.

Unless you've won the lottery... then you're just a jammy sod!


The moral of this story is simple. Don't be fooled by the idea of a "perfect lifestyle"

Work hard.

Support each other.

Make the most out of every opportunity you get.
