Grab a drink, maybe a snack, a blanket, and some earbuds (to listen to music), cause this is going to be ONE LONG POST. Paragraphs of AWESOME MOTIVATION.
So to start off, before any of you people start hating on this post, I need to say something very important. TAKE YOUR HATE ELSEWHERE. This post is for people who are down and need some cheering up. If you dont’ need any motivation and are here just to judge this post, you are welcome to leave. For the people who actually care about this post, I have a lot to say. Things about following your dreams, about being yourself, and about just living your life to the fullest. I know I’ve wrote about all of those before, but this time I’m going to summarize it all up and….um….and stuff. Yeah, stuff.
First paragraph. I have so much to say, but I’m just not sure how to put it into words. Ok, so this paragraph is going to be about being yourself. Yes, I know, I’ve talked about this a BILLION times, but this time is going to be a little different. Being yourself can be hard sometimes, especially when you’re a teenager. Sometimes you act different around different people because you’re scared they won’t like you. It feels like your 10 different people! You try pleasing your parents, your friends, your neighbors, and more. Let me tell you, THAT’S A FULL TIME JOB. You spend so much time pretending to be someone, that you totally forget who you actually are. You’re probably wondering, how does she know all this? Because it was me. I used to pretend to be someone all the time. This year, I realized that I needed to stop. Not going to lie, it was hard. I spent so much time faking, that I didn’t know who I was anymore. It took sometime, but now I’m on my way to being ME. Oh, and another thing. Sometimes people, mostly friends, tell you that your acting different, that you changed too much, or that they don’t like the new you. Don’t change for them. You’re not acting different or changing. You are growing. You’re growing into a better version of yourself. The one that’s been through so many events, from which he/she has learned what to do, what not to do, and who he/she wants to be. People who don’t like you are a waste of your time. Plus, confidence is the key. When I started this blog, I didn’t tell anyone about it. I was scared I would get too much hate. To be honest, I actually got the courage to write this post because I thought no one would read it. But, even as I’m typing now, I realize that if people don’t like my blog and thoughts, they’re not worth my time. This blog is a part of me because I write all my thoughts here. If they don’ like me, I shouldn’t care. And I promise you, if you are confident in who you are, I’m sure people will notice you. If you’re scared of being the real you, no one is going to notice.
Ok, second paragraph. Following your dreams. I have always wanted to be an actress. I wanted to be the star of a Disney Channel show and/or movie. I wanted to perform with Zendaya Coleman and dance for a large crowd. I never thought that I could actually do it. I was wrong. I mean, I still haven’t done these things, but I was wrong for thinking I couldn’t. There are days where I still think I couldn’t do it. But there are also days where I feel like getting up and driving straight to the Disney Channel headquarters. That’s my point. You’re going to have your ups and downs, but you can never forget your dreams. The easiest way to avoid giving up on your dreams is to have a plan. For example, my plan started at the beginning of this year. I decided I was tired of just dreaming and I actually wanted to do something. I started off by gaining confidence and practicing. I tried out for everything I could, and practiced as much as possible. Then I decided to go to a Disney open casting call. Sadly, I will be in India during that time, but I won’t give up. I’ll try my best to go to another one or sign with a talent agency. Also if you want to follow your dreams, DO YOUR RESEARCH. Look online for information and tips. BE WARNED. Sometimes, actually ALL THE TIME, there is someone who is going to hate on your dream. They’ll say something to break your plan, your dream, or you. DON’T LET THEM GET TO YOU. If you have the passion and are willing to work hard for what you want to do, nothing should come in your way. As a minor, your parents may not support your dream. Don’t blame them. They just want the best for you, but if you show them what you can do, they may be in on the idea. For example, all my parents are thinking about nowadays is getting me into a good high school. That is the furthest thing from my mind. Most Disney stars, start at the age of 13. I’m 13! That’s why I’m always thinking about my dream rather than a good high school. Don’t get me wrong, education is VERY IMPORTANT, but so are our dreams. I can’t blame my parents, though, because I never had the courage to talk to them about this. But I won’t give up. So, what’s my point? FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS.
Whew! That was one long post. First off, to all the haters out there (again :)) if you didn’t like this post, please don’t judge. This isn’t meant to be a sentimental post about some girl. This has nothing to do with that. This post was meant to be to motivate others. This post was meant to show how I stopped thinking so much and decided to be myself and follow my dreams. I can’t take all the credit, though, because I had my parents and friends there to support me. So if you have any hate……once again…….TAKE IT ELSEWHERE.
