This is the video I am most proud of.
My cover of “Iris” by the Goo Goo Dolls.  

I want to let you guys know something. 

I’ve never pinned my own videos before, but I really want to pin this one because this one has a message I would like you all the hear and understand because I think it’s very important.

I recorded this song and made this video when I was going through a difficult time and while I thought that difficult time was over, it’s kinda come back again. My family is going through a bit of trouble and it makes things really hard.
This is the most personal video I have ever made as well, because it reflected how I felt at the time perfectly and it reflects how I feel right now. 

I’m known on the Internet for being an extremely happy person and I preach the message “keep smiling” every single day…but that doesn’t mean I don’t go through difficult times, that doesn’t mean I don’t get sad. Of course I get sad sometimes, that’s apart of life..and it’s not a bad thing. It’s okay to feel down and lost and hopeless, because it’s those moments in life that make you realise you’re alive. It’s those horrible feelings that make you appreciate beautiful moment later on. 
We need awful times in our life to teach us the lessons, to help shape us into amazing people we’re destined to be. 

I think we can all relate to this song, we’ve all felt alone and confused, we’ve all felt like no one understands us…but we’re wrong. We’re never alone, we’re all fighting our own battles…but we’re never alone. We all have someone who cares about us, loves us… and it’s just the pain that is blinding us from that fact.

Don’t ever be ashamed of feeling lost, because you will find your way again. Don’t ever feel wrong for crying, because you’ll start smiling again. We fall down only to pick ourselves back up :) 
It’s okay to not be okay… just remind yourself that you will get through whatever pain you’re going through and you will be happy. Remind yourself that you’re loved.
Everything will be okay in the end, no matter what you’re going through…and if it’s not okay, it’s not the end.

Keep smiling! You deserve to be happy…don’t let anyone make you think otherwise. We all deserve happiness.

Be strong now, because things will get better. It might be stormy now … but it can’t rain forever.


p.s
If you reblog and share this video, thank you so much. I truly appreciated it.
This is the work I want to share with the world more than anything else.

p.p.s
Another reason this video is my favourite is because all the little notes hanging in the videos are confessions sent in by you guys. This isn’t just my video. it’s our video. Our song <3
