"I am less than perfect, and let's be honest with each other, social media can be pretty brutal," added Janelle in the caption. "Usually, there is a lot of judgment and, umm… "helpful tips." But there is power in being authentic. In showing the small steps towards crafting your own life - even if progress isn't always obvious or perfect."

The 53-year-old was applauded for her vulnerability, with one of her followers writing in the comment section, "I love your honesty and authenticity. You are inspiring!" Another expressed, "working hard to improve ourselves should always be applauded no matter what stage of the journey we're in. well done 👏"
