If your dreams don't scare you, they aren't big enough!

My dream: To perform and be creative always.

Do you have a dream? I’m sure you do. Everyone has some sort of dream. It can be big, it can be small, it could be hard to achieve or easily achievable.

For me, I was born to perform. Acting, singing, dancing… I love it! And on the side, I do creative things like, writing music, writing on my blog, taking photos, trying… but failing to do art, writing scripts, crewing on tv/film productions etc. And do you know what? It all scares me. It gives me a big rush! I was so scared to publish this blog, so scared of what people would think and what people would say… WHO CARES! One thing I’ve learnt is that you can’t control what people say.

There's you, there's the Universe, 
and there's other people. 
You have complete control of you. 
You have the power to visualise 
and ask the Universe for what 
you want, but you have no 
control over other people.

People are going to say stuff, that’s life. Let them. If you’re doing what makes you happy then why does it matter what they say? And most of it is just jealousy. I get comments on Youtube and Instagram saying ‘You are ugly,’ ‘You are a bad actress,’ ‘Yuck your hair's gross get off my news feed.’ When I was younger, those comments would really get me down. Now I just laugh at them and delete them. You can choose what to give your energy to in this world. Don’t give the negative things in your life power! Pour your energy into all the great things that are happening in your life, big or small.

So your dreams. Chase them. Work hard. Because once you’ve achieved something you’ve worked hard for, DAMN IT FEELS GOOD!

I absolutely love to sing. Music is one of my favourite things in the world. I studied music for a year in 2012 to get my confidence up so I could sing in front of people. It kind of worked. I did it for a little bit, but then I sunk back into my comfort zone again. (My room)

Well, I’ve attached a singing video to this blog. I AM SO NERVOUS TO SHARE THIS! SO NERVOUS! But it feels good to share a part of my life that I enjoy so much. I really want this blog post to inspire people to do things that scare them.

Remember:
Who cares what people think
Do what makes you happy
Challenge yourself
You can’t control other people
No dream is too big
If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all!
Work hard
Believe
