You are doing a GREAT job. Don't be deflated or defeated and don't ever let anyone piss on your parade.
Truth be told, YOU matter to me. You all do. We are all the same, but different. We have different backgrounds, different cultures, different beliefs, different lives. We are all perfect, perfectly imperfect. We all have our flaws but we all have our strengths too. And without each other, we wouldn't be able to lift ourselves the way we do.
This community, this beautiful community full of such wonderful, inspiring people. Thank you. Thank you for being my mirrors and reflecting what I need to see to help better myself and Mamazou on a daily basis.
It has been a little while since I've shared my thoughts on the good ol' but sometimes temperamental gram. Honestly, like most of you at the moment, I feel defeated and deflated. I used to watch my numbers like a hawk and analyse all the time. I never understood why they'd go up and then come tumbling down. I'd get the sweats, have sleepless nights and wonder what I had done wrong and why so and so didn't like me enough either follow me or why they unfollowed me... I'd panic I wasn't good enough / cool enough and then go back two steps. Yes, I'm a sensitive soul.
Since using social media for business, my anxiety levels have soared and so much time has been wasted on whether I'm good enough. And then I'd think if I feel all this on Instagram, then maybe I'm not good enough to run a social network to help support parents.
But ultimately, it all comes down to self acceptance, self worth and self love. Which I'm working on. Aren't we all, eh?
Mamazou exists, because of YOU!! Because you're my source of inspiration. Because you believe in it and so do I. Without you guys it wouldn't be where it is and a weight has been lifted.
So this is to let you know... things are going to be changing - yes, you'll still be seeing a lot of my special moments with H... but we will also be sharing a lot more on what's going on with the website too as well as introducing you to our fantastic team very soon. Watch this space. And thank you all for your support so far. 💞
