Character Traits ... #vlog #chaiwithsuzy #SuzysIlation #FridayReflections

I was a chubby, timid and shy child. At school I was quiet and academic and I was teased a lot. In some ways it undermined my confidence.

It takes a lot for me to take that first step into new waters. Probably at the back of my mind is the fear of being ridiculed. So when I decided to start vlogging it wasn't an overnight thing. It took months for me to take that leap of faith.

But now that I've done it, I'm truly enjoying it.

Courage is the ability to take a step without worrying about the outcome. So for those who are interested in vlogging, but are afraid to take the first step, just do it.

And now grab a cuppa and join me today on a glimpse of a little sand and surf.

 on my youtube channel: 

Sadly we didn't see Matariki the whale but there are a lot of youtube videos that you can check out. Matariki put up a spectacular show for those lucky enough to see him - displaying all whale character traits. Matariki got his name from the Maori New Year (Matariki) as his arrival coincided with that.

My friend and I went out on two different days but didn't get to see him. I guess we were not meant to. But I hope he will return or send his friends into the beautiful waters of Wellington.

I hope you enjoyed today's video. I will post some more scenic footage in the next few weeks.

Until then, have an awesome week.

  5. What a great video and I like how you are sharing what you see and do via this medium. Whales! We usually see them off the coast near where we live now..not this year (yet)

  8. Completely with you on taking the first step without thinking about the outcome. What might seem simple for others might be a big deal for us, so glad that you overcame your inhibitions and started vlogging. You have a beautiful voice :-) Also, whale watching is on my bucket list now that i’m In the Land of Oz :-)

    1. Thanks Ashwini for your very nice comment. I hope you do get to see some whales.

    1. Thanks Parul. Glad you liked my video. As they say, fortune favours the bold.

  10. It's the first step that's difficult, always. But once it's been taken, we realize that all our fears and misgivings were so unfounded. Glad you took the plunge and are enjoying vlogging. Hope you get to see Matariki next time. Thanks for giving us a glimpse of your lovely country!
