Hey you beautiful people!! It’s been a little minute since I’ve wrote for y’all but you know that I wouldn’t forget about you, you’re too precious to me.
As you know I’m a wife and mother but what you don’t know (unless you follow me on social media , which you should be) is that … get ready for it …
I’ve started a YouTube Channel (whaaaaaatttt!?) Yes, you read that right. Now you can see all my real life shenanigans and I’m so freakin’ excited about it. I’ve been getting more feedback than I thought I would be getting, I mean, I do have 65 subscribers so ..
To be completely honest and transparent with y’all though, because I think y’all are pretty cool people, I had the idea about creating a channel since I started this blog back in 2016. Why didn’t I do it, you ask. Well simply put my own insecurities. I thought that if I wanted to have a successful YouTube that I needed all the right equipment, the perfect background aesthetics, everything had to basically be a freakin’ Hollywood production.
As I write this I laugh at myself a little because that’s crazy, right? I saw this quote that said, ‘You have to allow yourself to be a beginner,’ and that’s so true. I laugh because I jumped into this blogging thing with one eye opened and I’m still learning things I should be doing differently and what I’m doing wrong, but I didn’t let that stop me from starting but since a video can be watched and critiqued I let that hold me back until I thought I had everything I needed to begin.
Pfffft. I had to have a one-on-one with myself like, ‘Girl, shake that ish off and record that damn video.’ I have let y’all be with me when I first started this blog with no problem and I try to be so honest with y’all so why not let y’all watch me grow from my first video where I don’t really know what I’m doing all the way up to a point that I feel like I just may have the whole YouTube thing figured out?
So after that one-on-one, that I told no one about until now, I talked myself out of it again hahaha LOL and then my wonderful husband asked me one day, ‘Are you still gonna start your YouTube Channel?’ my response ‘You think I should?’ his response ‘Yeah.’ So I closed one eye and jumped in and I’m so happy I did and can’t believe the only thing holding me back was me.
I truly hope this inspires someone to do whatever great thing it is that they are holding their own self back from because, please believe me, it’s so exciting!
