Neil Gaiman’s New Year wish to us all…
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make new mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family life.
Whatver it is you’re scared of doing, DO it.”
Happy New Year everyone! I just want to say a huge thanks for sticking with me and giving me the confidence in 2013 to branch out into the world of blogging and recently YouTube! When I think of how I was when I first starting blogging in December 2012, so unsure of myself and worried about what others would think of my blog or how I would be received if I ventured into making videos, to where I am now, I feel like a totally different person. I think the above statement by Neil Gaiman really sums up how I feel about 2014. Life’s too short to worry about things…and trust me, that’s coming from someone who used to worry about everything. I feel really inspired, not only from a blogging and YouTube perspective but from a personal persepective and I truly mean to make the most of 2014 and if that means making a few mistakes along the way then so be it! In fact, the more the merrier I say! In all honesty though, thanks to everyone who follows my blog and my YouTube channel, it really does mean the world to me and here’s to a new year filled with loads of fun, happpiness and mistakes…plenty of mistakes 🙂
Lots of love,
