Good Vibes Only | Personal

Lately my outlook on life has changed a lot. I used to be very hung up on what other people thought of me and I ended up becoming somebody I wasn't. A lot of the time (especially over the likes of social media) it's all too easy to target someone and drag people down. I know all too well how it feels to be a target, and sometimes I'll admit it can feel like the end of the world. Because of this, I was always very quiet around new people - sometimes I still am. I would find it hard to make instant friends as I'd always be more worried about what that person thought of me. 


But sometimes it seems no matter how nice you are, and no matter how hard you try, some people are just out to be negative. Even now there are people not necessarily in my life, but around it who can be so indirectly negative towards me, even when all you do is try to be nice to them. 

So I'm leaving all that worrying in 2014. 2015 is strictly 'good vibes only'. What I mean by this, is that life's too short to get down in the dumps and worry about what people think. By letting those feelings go and refusing to get worked up about the little things, I feel so much more at peace with myself.
Let the negative people live in their own negative little worlds, and you'll see it seems like sometimes they're getting more worked up about your life than even you are! Simply thinking 'who cares?!' can make such a difference, and I'm doing what makes me really happy WITHOUT worrying about what people think - in the end I think that's all that matters. 

Pretty much the moral of the story here haha

I think that's why I feel so comfortable in this little blogosphere - the side of the blogging community that I've experienced is so supportive and kind, and nothing like the indirect tweeters and negative 'keyboard bashers' of the world. Sometimes the likes of Twitter and Facebook can be regarded as quite negative places, but here every single comment and conversation makes me smile and it's the greatest feeling - so from the bottom of my heart, thank you. 

And that brings me on to the subject of YouTube.  Starting my own YouTube channel has been something I've been toying around with the idea of for years (literally since around 2012). Creating video is something I've always enjoyed - so much that I spent my two years of college devoted to a production course haha! I got my grades and all was well, but I still never ended up doing YouTube because I felt too embarrassed. I would always sit and think
'what if someone were to stumble across my videos and didn't like me'
'even worse, what if they KNOW me' 
'what if they think I'm pathetic'
and with that, I'd manage to convince myself day in day out that YouTube was a bad idea.  And that is one of my biggest regrets.

I'm deciding to finally let those feelings go, and I'm so excited to announce that I'm going to take the plunge and set up my own little YouTube to accompany my blog for 2015! My channel is already set up as ohzelda, and I've popped a little YouTube icon into my blog sidebar ready for the big day, although I'm not sure exactly when that day will be. It's a big thing for me so I don't want to rush - I just want to make it the best it can be!

I do apologise for the ramble, big love as always,
