Its crazy how much time we spend contemplating on whether we should do something we love, at times we go to the extreme of putting ourselves down and entertaining negative thoughts in our heads that stop us from going that extra mile and achieving our dreams and goals, going that extra mile and Taking A Leap of Faith and hoping for the best.
I have always lived most of my life admiring the incredible things other people do, wishing I could be in their shoes just for one day to experience what it would be like to be so confident and carefree, doing the things you love and not having to worry about what people will think, say or criticize you about.
Honestly its miserable and tiring at times, when will I be able to do what I love, when will I finally pluck up the courage to do the things that make me happy and just not worry for once?
So I decided to Take a Leap of Faith…….
I started off by creating my very own YouTube channel something I have always wanted to do but never had the courage to start one. An amazing platform where you can post anything you want from Beauty, Fitness, Music to Advice videos. Its like your own little world, your baby that you watch grow from day to day, month to month and year to year. The excitement you get when people have viewed a video that you created yourself is incredible, watching your views add up and subscribers grow makes you feel loved.
However its not all positive as there are a few negative things that come with it, people being horrible or disliking your videos is something that I struggled with at first, there are so many people out there who are all entitled to their own opinion some maybe hash or give non constructive criticism but that doesn’t mean you should give up because a couple of people disliked your video, these people in fact motivate me to be better and improve on the content I put out. The negativity helps you develop a thick skin and broader shoulder which is what you most definitely need to have when you put your self out on a social platform.
So far I would not go back and change the decision I made, it makes me a happier person, now that I have finally decided to start giving the things I love a go and not having to worry about what people would say or think. Sometimes you just have to take chances and try things out, whats the worst that could happen? If it does not work out at least you gave it a go, at the end of the day we always regret the things and chances we did not take, its never too late to follow your dreams or do the things you Love.
I am here I am taking a Leap of Faith and I have created my very own blog.
