I'm often asked if I think the social media world is good or bad?
Personally I'm very fortunate that my experiences (so far) have been positive. I see social media as a fabulous way for people to connect with others who they otherwise would never have known about. How incredible that a platform such as this can bring people together like that.
This picture is an example of how social media can work in wonderful and beautiful ways.
Through my friendship with lifestyle blogger, Sarah Jane, I learnt about the incredible story of a young mother of three who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.
Over the weekend a fantastic fundraising event was held in Melbourne in support of Pink Hope - and it was due to an incredible group of women (who found each other via Instagram).
I had the honour of speaking at the event, and I never ever take for granted the opportunities that come my way allowing me to share my story, it's a privilege.
Without the wonderful powers of social media this event would not have been possible.
There will always be people out there who chose to make negative comments, don't be that person. Instead be the person that sees the positive in every moment. Be the person who's comments make another person feel good.
Social media is a very powerful tool when used in the right way.
