My Style: Grecian Inspiration | Changes

          I'm writing this blog post on the patio of the villa my family and I are staying at for two weeks in Orlando. Despite being so far from home and reality I don't think I've ever thought about the future so much. In eight days time I get my GCSE results, in twenty-two days I begin my life as a sixth form student, faced with all the trying times of A-Levels. 

          As some of you may or may not know I recently started a Youtube channel - vlogs whilst I'm on holiday and regular beauty and fashion videos once I get home. I've had my blog for almost three years now and have never had an ounce of negativity thrown my way. But since starting my Youtube just over a week ago I've already received negative and just plain nasty remarks. I always knew that Youtube would test my strength of character but never this early on.
          Everything that is currently happening in my personal life has got me thinking. I am not in control of what my GCSE results are. I did my best and whatever happens I can't change it. I can't change the fact that I need to go to sixth form to achieve what I want in life. And I can't change the fact that no matter what aspect of life whether it be on social media or IRL, there will always be people who want to pull you down and lower your spirit - even if you don't know them personally.
          Being so far away from home has really given me chance to reflect. I make videos because I enjoy doing it. I blog because it's my passion. I've always lived by the philosophy that if it makes you happy and you're not hurting anyone else then continue with what you're doing. 
          I suppose that the message of this blog is that although changes might be occurring in your life, try to make the best of them. Find something that makes you happy and stick with it no matter what anyone else says. I don't care whether 1 or 100,000 people watch or read my blog and my Youtube channel, I do it because I love it. 
          Good luck to those getting their results and entering the next chapter of their life ;)
