What makes you happy??

What is it in life that makes us smile when we are feeling so low.

Weather its watching your favourite tv show like Glee, or a movie which makes you chuckle, or even your best friend giving you a hugg we each have our own ways to gain our emotions when it comes to smiling. Depression though is a different kettle of fish, you cant even watch tv or your favourite movie and when it comes to chatting to your best friend and getting a hugg you just want to shut the world out and pretend it will only get worse and there is no end in sight.

When I was going through Depression it was just like that shutting the whole world away, the concept of help didnt even enter my mind. There is lots of help out there Citizes Advice Bureau and the samaritans.

This was going back now 10 yrs and I can look back thinking if only I did this or that then my life would have been on a different path, I might have been pushed up the ladder at Alton Towers as I was gaining lots of respect from the other managers, but we can all look back at a certain point in our lives and say these things. I decided to not look back at what could have been and make the most of how my life is at the moment and I started to feel more positive, I am so greatful for working at Alton Towers for them years 2003 – 2007 and they will always be the best part of my working life and nothing will ever come close to that and I always feel happy looking back at them days without feeling depressed.

Still now in 2017 I struggle some days I tend not to look to far into the future as I get panic attacks and anxiety issues so I mainly look at the day to day but what has helped the most is Vlogging yep putting myself on YouTube for everyone to see is scary and still is but My confidence has grown 1000% in the past year I can face challenges and even though im 47 and not the best looking cookie in the jar lol I am who I am and proud of that, im a nice person, would never hurt anyone because it would upset me more that the person if I did, I was brought up to respect people no matter what, I am not perfect in any way shape or form If you have watched any of my vlogs then you will understand where Im coming from.

I cherish every moment I can film and put onto YouTube even though I do not get many people viewing my vlogs or subscribing its not the point of vlogging its something different and I love doing it, its a good way to express yourself, the true you, the reality of life, sharing what you can and showing you are only Human after all.

Have you evern chatted to someone famous and realise wow they are just normal people, when i was working at Alton Towers I met a few famous people and they were so down to earth just living there lives like anyone else, if they were to vlog there normal lives they they would not be so famous as you would see they are just like you or me, Media can pull the wool over people’s eyes and typecasting people. But at the end of the day they are actors and they have cameras pointing at them just like a vlogger but a vlogger does not have a hollywood script attached to them (well maybe some do).

I am writing this on the spur of the moment, did not plann this what do people say its come from the heart and when you get these moments you have to share because thats when people take notice and appreciate what you have written.

Mental Health Issues

Hi there everyone reading this

As most of you know who follow me I generally produce vlogs which I link through here but I have decided to do more Blogs to make this more interesting to everyone, when i post a vlog link on here I dont leave much text for people to read because I dont want to type what I have said in the vlogs if you know what I mean..

The reason for this is as you would have guessed by the title I have the past few days been filming me on good days and bad days with my issues, I do have to state though my issues are so minor compared to allot of people out there and I am not a trained doctor or anything like that, I just want to give people the insight on how it effects me and my own personal views and how I manage to get from being so happy one day to being so down the next. Mainly this is going to be a self help vlog where I can studdy myself a bit differently and if I happen to help anyone else on the way then I would be so happy.

So im not bragging about it its just a different way for me to look at myself and see if that can help me in anyway possible.

I am hoping to have a vlog up on this Sunday coming (April 23rd 2017).

Thank you so much for reading this and if you want to watch the Vlog then follow or look out for my link on Sunday 6pm GMT.

Thank you again

A short film about being a victim of bullying

This took allot of guts for me to do but I did it if only to help 1 person then the job is done, but i would prefer to help more people.

Not only does bullying happen at school it also happens in later life, I have had it most of my childhood and the first few years of work placement from the good old YTS days.

So if you can please watch the video and hope you will give it a like..

Vlogging in March

Hey there my loyal viewer or Newbie..

This month my aim is to upload a review each day could be tv, movie, old games, people, etc

this was my first one and its of the old classic tv series from the 80’s Star Fleet which not many of you would know about, it came out on Saturday Morning tv and then vanished only to appear about 30 years later on DVD..

So take a look at my review and see what you think.

Evolution of a Vlogger

evolution-of-a-vlogger

Where do I start..

I have only been a YouTube Vlogger for a few short years but before that I uploaded lots of videos without me being in them just general out and about videos. I decided to Vlog to boost my confidence and see if I could get the courage to do it.

I Follow quite a few Famous Vloggers, Zoella, Joe Sugg, Alfie (Pointless Blog), The Michalaks, Ingham Family, Olan Rogers etc,. Watching one of Zoellas latest vlogs she did a Q&A and talked about what it was like to vlog when she started and that no one else was doing it so it was new territory so she learned that random people would approach and ask for autographs etc so she has to deal with the YouTube life with Alfie and the her real life which must be a struggle sometimes, but watching that gave me a reason for this Blog and the title.

There must be over a few thousand people now who use YouTube and social media to Vlog and most hardly get any views or subscribers like me but im not in it for all that, I do Vlogging for me and if anyone else watches then good on them, it would be nice to get more comments and likes plus subscribers.

In the next few weeks I will do a Vlog all about this going into more detal.

My new vlog will be up and running tonight 4.30pm 16th February 2017
