Hello again, OliverFrenchie here. I'm back again with a motivational blog post about Doing what you enjoy doing and not letting anyone else say otherwise! I'm an avid YouTuber as many of you know and I enjoy making videos that help, teach and entertain people. Regardless of my subscriber count and viewcount, I enjoy making those videos because I get a lot out of them. Its something that I love doing and will spend hours perfecting. My parents don't really see the point in what I do and why I do the videos because they aren't from this modern day and age. They think that I should be out there doing hours of sport instead of sitting indoors making videos...
But hey, I love making videos and I'm terrible at sport. Why should I have to go outdoors and do 2 hours of sport each day leaving me aching and embarrassed because of the failure that I am when I could quite simply be sitting indoors, sipping on a cup of tea whilst I edit a video. Sure I do exercise, I go running and swimming each weekend to pass some time and keep fit. The point is, that I didn't let my parents change or direct me in a path that I didn't want to go down. Instead, I continued doing what I love doing.
Another incident that happened a while back was the bullying that I got from my friends, or what they would call 'banter' or 'teasing'. Sure its funny to a point, but after a while you start to question if it really is teasing or if they genuinely mean it. Day in and day out, I'm surrounded by people that do extremely large amounts of sport especially amongst my friends. They practise hours upon hours perfecting their sport. I do the same, but with something a little more unconventional, making videos. I didn't let go of what I enjoyed doing, I persevered and continued.
Why should they dictate what you do in life, when it is your life. Your life to direct, your life to lead and your life to do what you want with.
If there is something that you enjoy doing and get immense happiness out of then just do it and don't let anyone stop you because at the end of the day, who gives a flying codswallop about what they think.
Its not their life, its yours.
Thanks once again for your support and positive comments, they really help me to strive further into the community.
