As I am getting older I am definitely realising more and more how important it is to stay true to yourself. YES, I know I am only 27…I said old-ER, not old. Anyway, theres always so much pressure to be perfect in everything that you do, or to be like this or that. In reality, the best way to be; is simply…YOU. I truly believe that you will go further in life being your true self than a fake persona. Can you imagine trying to keep up appearances all the time? HOW MISERABLE.
GOING FROM A GIRL TO A WOMEN…
In the blogging and YouTube world I feel a lot of people aren’t their true selves and I find that pretty disheartening. If you meet me in person I am exactly the same as I am online. I encourage positivity but I am not a cheesy or fake person. I have grown with my channel, especially with confidence.
When I first started my channel I had just gotten out of a bad place… the depths of DEPRESSION. In my early positivity videos, without knowing it, I was trying so hard to be a ray of, chilled out, sunshine. I was young, nervous (without knowing it), and TRYING TOO HARD. I’m not too bothered that my old videos are cringy because I had just gotten off of the depression train; so I thought this was how I was supposed to be. I constantly did meditations and was a bit too zen. However, it got me to where I am now. The perfect balance of positive yet REALISTIC. Back then I was finding my feet with my own happiness so I was never fake just somewhat lost. As I write this I am actually so glad I created those videos because it shows me how much I have grown as a women and how much meditation helped me.
DON’T DO ANYTHING YOU DON’T BELIEVE IN…
Working online can be a challenge. You never know when your next pay cheque will come in and you’re not always guaranteed work. It could be tempting to accept any work but I urge fellow bloggers not to be tempted to do just anything. What is the point in saying you like something that you think is CRAP? I would hate my followers to spend their hard earned money on complete and utter rubbish that I would never use. For example, I wouldn’t advertise teas that make you ‘skinny’ because lets be honest, they just make you SHIT…LITERALLY. All they contain is laxatives so save yourself some money! I see myself as my own brand so if I promote crap then my brand is crap and a lie. I adore sharing what I love with you and if I get paid to talk about something then thats just a massive bonus for me. You also have to remember that it is all my personal opinion so what works for me may not always work for you.
Having morals is important.
STOP CARING WHAT PEOPLE THINK…
Lately, I have gained more self-belief and I have started to care less what people think of me. Ever since I was young I’ve never really fitted in and that used to bother me because I never knew why, I still don’t. However, these days I like who I am so I don’t care. I am me, if you don’t like me then whatever.
If you have a dream but are worried that people will laugh at you for wanting to succeed you need to stop caring so much. There is nothing wrong with wanting to better yourself. People seem to hate people doing well, or better than them, but its just jealously. They’re jealous they don’t have the drive that you do. WORK HARD, BELIEVE IN YOU then see if people will laugh! WHATS THE WORST THAT CAN HAPPEN? You may succeed, if not, you’ll be back to where you are now. You have nothing to lose.
My book comes out 4th May and to be honest I am excited (duh!) but also quite nervous because I literally become an open book about my life. However, the more I think of it the more I need to stop being nervous. If people want to read about my life then they have nothing to judge because they have chose to read it. I am not ashamed of who I am so why should I care what people think?
Always remember nastiness always comes from jealousy.
BE YOU, BE TRUE.
