Never ever look back

I was reading some blog posts the other day giving advice on social media. Boy, aren’t there are a stack of bad and confusing posts out there? If you’re new to the game, you could be left feeling overwhelmed and frightened!

Do this, do that, don’t do this…

I love giving advice, don’t get me wrong (I give it here and here and here). I love sharing what I know! But it can get confusing hey? Whose posts do you read? Where do you even start?

My biggest piece of advice is “never look back”. Own it.

I have learnt so much over the past 18 months. I’ve learnt more than I probably have EVER learnt in my life. I’ve had 150,000 facebook fans of The Block tell me what they think of me. 50% good and 50% bad.

But you know what? I don’t care now. At the time I found it hard, but I gained a new strength. Actually it’s been good for me. I feel better about myself now than I ever did. I’m comfortable. You can say whatever you like to me and it’s not going to bother me.

My point today is: never ever worry about what you’ve done in your life – proud of it, or not. Life is all about growing and learning and making mistakes.

Guess what, I blogged and tweeted waaaaaaay before I went on a tv show. Everything I’ve ever done online is still there. I swore, drunk tweeted, and laughed, and made fun of stuff. That’s nothing I am worried about. I own it. It’s me.

So be yourself. Never look back. Keep tweeting and writing and laughing.

Live your life. Don’t worry about what people will think. Those that hide will lose and be lost.

Own everything! Work it baby…

The best example of this is from Josh and Jenna – they named their business Bicker Design Co. How ironic? I totally love it! But what an awesome example of running with what you’ve got. Never shy away from who you are!

Now, get on with your day and make the most of it… xoxo

    I have just started my own blog Katrina and had one way back when I was very young and traveling Europe. I’ve been so worried and conscious of making a mistake or offending someone but after reading your post I feel like a huge weight just fell off my shoulders and I can relax and just get back to what I’m good at, being me!!

    This post really resonated with me. I read it at a time when it was important to bear this in mind while beginning a new project of my own! It’s also something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately! You have to stand tall and proud and not let the opinions of others (good or bad) influence what you do. In a hundred years…who’s going to care. And where are these people during your success and failures. Either they are there to pull you up or pull you down. You can’t focus on another’s journey, only your own! You’ve been an inspiration to me and I appreciate your blog posts and the energy you put into everything you do! I hope I can do my new project as much justice as you do all of yours!
