ugh!!! hi there!
I was just made aware that my letter in the description DIDN'T SAVE last night. I wrote out this whole big thing I wanted to say after the live stream premiere of this vlog last night! Im disappointed, but it's ok. Glad to be here now! thank you for taking the time to watch and read this, too!
I love to set goals for myself, and as I was talking about in this vlog, I want to work on dedicating more time to things that matter. I read an article a couple days ago that was about "the scarcity mindset", something I haven't heard about. Basically, that we are hard-wired to always ask for more out of ourselves (and perhaps out of other people/things, too). Thoughts like "I could've, or should have done more", or "I achieved some things today, but not everything I wanted"... and thoughts like this go on and on. I guess in primitive times, it was so that we could be on the lookout for survival and be aware of any shortcomings to change/adapt in order to beat the whole 'survival of the fittest'. But things are different now.. I want to stop being a downer when it comes to myself. I talk about being grateful all the time for the little things, or the big blessings we have.
But just as importantly, we need to stop sometimes, and take some recognition to be grateful for ourselves. be proud of the effort you make, understand the mistakes and the shortcomings we have, and keep moving. Keep learning, keep growing. I love to set goals. It doesn't matter as much to me that I may not fulfill or become ultimately successful by societal or cultural standards. It's extremely fulfilling to just get to DO the things that's a part of reaching a goal I've set for myself.
I want to put more time into doing art for fun, and perhaps finally, that means more of those videos. I can't count how many videos like that, or also other lifestyle/advice ones that I've brainstormed and wanted to make. But at the end of it, I always think "it's not good enough", or "I could give more", and that "I should wait until I feel it's perfect". Result: it sits on the back burner, collecting dust and cobwebs.
I think there will ALWAYS be things in our life that convinces us we don't have the time, have the chance, or have the ability to do certain things. Maybe sometimes it could be true.. But it shouldn't ever be because we never tried.
"showing up is the hardest part" is something else I heard recently. Putting the energy into taking a chance on something, or believing in ourselves enough to overcome fear of failure is one of the biggest struggles I deal with. It's a day-to-day thing, and occurs in every aspect of my life. My creative work, school work, social relationships, self identity-
I am often filled with doubt and concern.. I don't have all the answers, but that's ok. I've been telling myself to enjoy my BEING, even if what I'm doing doesn't excel or transcend all expectations. When I get under my sheets at night, and I think that today could've been the last day of my little life here on earth, I feel a great sense of joy and comfort when I think "it was a day well spent".
