Do you ever imagine living your dream life? Do you ever allow your mind to take over and drift you away to the most exquisite scenarios of how your life could possibly look like? What do those thoughts look like?
I’m the type of person who really indulge in day dreaming but then also get to work to make those dreams come true. Sure I get scared sometimes when the dream comes so close you can almost taste it, but yet so far away. What if I reach my hand out and the dream slips away, what if I do all this work and it is unsuccessful, maybe my work will be received with lukewarm reactions and not crushing results just like in my dreams!!
Doing youtube and Instagram for over a year now, as well as blogging on different platforms since I was a teenager makes me very familiar with those scenarios. In my dreams, it was so easy to see myself as an immensely successful personality with viewers and readers flocking to my content, but in reality it has taken me over a year to collect 1300 subscribers on my youtube channel and just under 2000 followers on instagram. It is a reality check that has kept me grounded and I continue doing it because I believe in what I have to offer, I believe in the messages and content that I put out on my channels. And apparently so does approximately 3300 amazing other people which makes me so happy!
Don’t let fear hinder your from leading the life you always dreamt of? What is the worst thing that can happen?? That you fail? I have spent so many hours on filming, photgraphing, editing, reediting, deleting, breaking gear, buying new gear, learning tricks and tips. The experience has made me in to a so much more talented content creator today than what I was a year ago. I have won so much during this time and my personal development in this creative field is only encouraging me to continue. The worst thing that could happen is that you never try. Trust your heart.
