I have been in the funkiest of funks lately. I have analyzed my life and had difficulty finding answers. What have I accomplished? What do I want to accomplish still? How can I make my life better? What are my dreams? Where I am going? How will I get there?
Although I don’t know the answers to all of those questions, I do know that I have dreams, many of which I have been hesitant to pursue for many, many years. Then about eight or so months ago I stumbled upon this quote:
…and then I started this blog, created two YouTube channels, and got to work pumping out content.
But let’s back up for a second.
I first found YouTube as something more than cat videos and music in 2010. I saw the community, the people uploading, sharing their stories, entertaining, vlogging, and I remember desperately wanting to contribute. Through the years that followed, I created about 10 YouTube channels, but never working up the courage to post. I eventually came to the conclusion that starting YouTube after marriage would be the easiest route. So I just stopped caring, knowing it was for the future.
About a year ago I got engaged, and my YouTube future started creeping over the horizon. As a way to ease into creating content, I started this blog and began to put myself out there online. I was instantly addicted to the creative drive of thinking up an idea, writing, shooting photos, editing, uploading, and posting a little snippet of my life. I loved blogging so much that I knew the only way to make it better was to start YouTube too.
Currently, I consistently upload to two channels and have been so excited and so much happier than I have felt in months. Being able to create and share content on YouTube has not only been so satisfying, but it has become a way to document our day to day life. Our life seems so mundane, yet I know in 2 or 5 or 10 years from now I will be happy that I have these memories to look back on. See our most recent vlog below:
I am not sure where this little internet journey will take me, but I hope you will come along for the ride. I also hope you were inspired to make your dreams reality, no matter what they are or how scary they seem!
