I’ve been pretty open about my life, opinions, and feelings here on this blog and through my videos on YouTube over the last few years, and it’s something that I’m very comfortable with and proud of.
It takes a bit of courage to bare yourself and be honest, and in the beginning, it was definitely a step out of the comfort zone for sure. I still have moments in front of the camera or when writing out a post where I ask myself if I’m fine with sharing it with the world. Most of the time, the answer is yes. This is my little corner of the internet, and I want it to be real and honest. I want it to be as much me as it can possibly be.
Sometimes though, the answer is no. I might film or write something in the heat of an emotion and then leave it to rest for a little while and pick it up and reread or rewatch it, then decide that it’s not right. Getting a bit of distance from certain projects is sometimes needed for them to reach their potential.
It also takes a good dose of zero fucks given at times 😜
But I wanted to take a moment and share my gratitude for other creators that choose to bare themselves as real and honest people. There are so many wonderful and creative people out there that dare to show the good, the bad and the ugly, instead of some unrealistic picture perfect life. I think we as creators have a certain responsibility to be real with our viewers/readers. Not that everyone needs to be as open and share as much as I do for instance, but to at least be honest and real in whatever part they choose to share.
It’s one thing to be creative about what you share, and make it look interesting. That’s the charm and wonder of being any kind of artist. You get to play with it, make it your own, have fun and do something different.
I am so grateful for all of the artists that have inspired me to dare to share as my own kind of artist. Thank you ❤️
And I am also so grateful for all of the support and love that I’ve gotten as a writer/YouTuber so far. Thank you ❤️
And here is my promise to you, and to myself:
I promise to try my hardest to always be honest and real. I will be as open as I can possibly be. I will continue on with my journey of growth and self-love, and it’s something that I’m extremely passionate about. Not everything I share will be on a positive and light note because life isn’t like that all of the time. You might not always agree with me, and you might even not like what I post, and that’s totally fine. You are entitled to your opinions as much as I am. However, I am a big believer in spreading love instead of hate, and I will work hard to keep this little corner a place of love, gratitude, and respect.
I might falter and fail at times. I will make mistakes, and when I do I promise to be mindful of them, to learn from them and to apologize.
It gives me much joy and meaning in life to be able to share with all of you and experiencing that the content that I make has an impact on other people. That is why I love being creative, honest and real💛 That is why I do what I do.
Thank you to those of you who’ve been a part of this journey so far! You inspire me and you move me on a daily basis! And for those of you who are new; WELCOME! Thank you for taking some of your precious time to be here with me and my creativity!
I love you guys so much and you mean the world to me! I never in a million years could have predicted where my creativity would lead me, and I’m still in awe all of the time of how lucky I am, to have the freedom to do this!
This is such an interesting and wonderful journey. Sometimes it’s full-on bliss, and other times, it’s painful. But it’s all an important part of the journey and the personal growth. And you know the best part??
This is only the beginning 😉
Again, thank you for being here in the past, now and in the future!
I love you guys❤️
