So, I say high five to all those Insta-mums (aka business women providing for their families and sharing stories and making themselves heard) keep going.

On the one hand, as visual beings, we can appreciate a beautifully crafted Instagram post, but on the other, it creates an innate pressure when we realise our lives don't mirror those of our Insta-idols.

You can paint a life that looks nice on the outside, but it's nothing if it's not authentic on the inside. The reality is that your nice white walls have once been covered in paint, felt tips, ketchup. The reality is that your kid has thrown a major tantrum in the middle of a busy supermarket. The reality is that you've been covered head to toe in sick, poo, piss. The reality in actual fact, is much better than the painted pretty picture. The reality is life as it is. Pure, authentic and real.

The idea that being 30-odd is too old to pursue your passions and dreams, even if that involves a drastic change, is ludicrous. You are not yet halfway through your life. You have survived your twenties, observed yourself change and grow, and now have a better idea of who you are and what you want than ever before.

Dad can't make memories like you and me, so I make them for him with the posts I share on Instagram.
