If you follow me on Twitter you already know about my new YouTube channel, but I’d like to share more about it here. Perhaps in a bit more than 140 characters. 🙂
I have decided to do this in a Q and A format, so that I can be sure to answer any questions you might have.
When did you get the idea to start vlogging?
When I first began blogging I had no intentions of starting a YouTube channel. I had (still have some) pretty bad self esteem issues with cameras. So, trying to talk in front of one was pretty much impossible.
But, by trying to accomplish one of my 2015 goals of being less self conscious about pictures and videos of me, I decided to give this a shot.Read More »
Those are both very common phrases. Sometimes they are meant well, and sometimes they are meant to bring you down.
But no matter how they are meant, if you take that advice to heart you are hurting yourself more than you know.
What is reality?
Let’s take a look at the meaning.
“The quality or state of being real.”
Seems legit, right?
But, far too often, that is not how it is used by us.
When we use one of the above phrases, what we are really saying is that we think that the person we are speaking to has their head in the clouds. They aren’t thinking “realistically” or intelligently about the subject.
They are dreaming. They are shooting waaayyyy too far.
They will fail.
That’s what we use the word “reality” for.
To bring people back to the way we think they should be thinking.
One of the recent pages I filled out was the “Books I’d Like to Read” page.
Last year I read one of the best books I have ever read. It was called Little Beeby Chris Cleave. It was probably one of the craziest emotional roller coasters of a book I’ve ever read.
I usually hate sad endings. I feel this way because I think that there are enough sad endings in the world already, and I usually want to read a book that gets me away from all of that.
But Little Bee was different.
I found that book sitting in the $2 section at the Galveston Bookstore. (Funny isn’t it? I would pay $20 for it now, having read it.) I read the back and felt the need to buy it. So I followed my instinct. And I’m glad I did.
After reading Little Bee, I decided I wanted to read more books that made me feel. Books that made me think. That inspired me to be better.
So I started looking.
I found so many books that I can’t wait to start reading. I hope they will be just as great as they sound. I thought I might take a minute and share some of my list with you now.
(there aren’t videos up yet, but we’re working on that right now)
We’ve been planning to do this for several months now, but had to have some patience while everything came together.
If you’re wanting a lengthy crazy video land story, you’ve come to the right place. However, if that isn’t your thing, feel free to hop on over to my Instagram or Twitter for something short and sweet!
