The Connections We Make On This Social Media Train

OK~ I am sitting here writing and actually thinking about all of the inspirational people that have entered my life over the course of the last three years. It is through the power of Twitter, Facebook, and all of these fun social media networks that are out there that have changed my life.

When I started this crazy, little blog it was purely for therapy. Writing turned out to be a great way for me to find a "new" purpose in life. Sure, I am a wife, Mom, daughter and all those good things; but it's always nice to have a reason to crawl out of bed each morning. I now find myself arising around the crack of dawn because I am excited to see what new adventures await me.

Writing is still therapeutic for me and always will be. Seriously, if you have ever considered writing, do try it! Writing is a fantastic way to express yourself, your feelings, your emotions, and an avenue to meet inspiring people.

Through this blog that I started a little more than three years ago; I have been inspired by others as they have taken the time to leave me a comment or two on a post. Many have encouraged me to write about certain topics. Now, I must confess that Jeff Goins has probably influenced me the most when it comes to writing out of my comfort zone.

 I am an Iowa Mom who is sharing her life with the world. Think about that, just ponder that thought. Through the world wide web we are all connected in ways that my Grandmother never imagined we would be. I know that when I was a child the East Coast seemed like it was far, far away. Now, in 2012, I have many friends that reside on the East Coast and we chat daily through Twitter. We met through social media and these people "get" me! Sounds crazy, but this is my world.

The power of social media continues to influence me in my day to day life. It challenges me to be the best that I can be and to reach for that next step. I have no clue where this crazy social media train is heading, but I can tell you that I am enjoying every step along the way. The connections I have made have truly changed my life. How has social media impacted your life? After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

  1. So very true! Great write up Sara. I think of that sometimes how many friends I have met on here that I would of never met. I am just in this little town in MA. Wondering what life will be like in another 30 yrs. I am sure we won't know what the heck is going on with what the kids will be doing then. They have no clue as to what I did 30 years ago. Meaning play outside, cards, walks, finding things to do since we didn't have internet and social places like twitter, FB. Excited to see the future at the same time. :)Glad I met you! I think you are the sweetest person that makes me smile when I get a chance to read your blog. Enjoy the ride!
