Why I'm sharing so much more:

When I first started blogging, around 6 years ago, I used to read people saying 'I blog for me' and think 'yeah yeah'. I would ask myself, if you're doing this for you, why are you sharing with the world?!

Then I took a bit of a blogging break, I would post sporadically, simply to keep it going. I took the break because I got disenchanted with the blogging world, it seemed to become all about making money and being the biggest. I realised I didn't want that, I don't want to make money, I don't want to become a big 'influencer', I just wanted to write.


That's when it dawned on me! I want to write for myself.

Don't get me wrong, if I help just one person talk openly about their mental health, 
or help someone that is struggling with weight loss, 
or get one special needs parent through a shitty day, then I'm happy. 

Mostly though, I'm doing it for me. That realisation has made me share more! I don't care how many people watch/read/like/comment, I just want to share!

So, if you follow me on Instagram or facebook, sometimes Twitter, but that's become my least favourite social platform (all clickable), then expect to see a lot more of me. I love Instagram the most, I adore watching other peoples stories, seeing their lives unfold.

I've been sharing my food diary's, and my life in general. It's fun! I'm hoping others enjoy, but mostly I'm just loving sharing, I wanted to spend a bit more time on me, this is it. As a full time carer, I don't get out much, when I do it's as a family. 


So this is my social and it makes me happy.
Shouldn't we all do what makes us happy?
