I can’t believe it’s been three and a half months since I last posted! I’ve realized something about myself throughout the years. I am a super perfectionist, and only want to show people my absolute best. I hold everything I do to a really high standard. For example, I don’t have a great camera and I hate looking through blogs with sucky pictures. So I don’t even want to bother making a post that doesn’t have fantastic high quality pictures. Another example: I’m pretty mediocre at piano, and pretty horrible at guitar, and over the past 5 years my voice has become really untrained. I would LOVE to create a YouTube channel of me singing covers and I often daydream about it. But, I often get intimidated by all of the super successful people out there doing the same thing I want to be doing. I don’t want to have a mediocre blog or a mediocre YouTube channel. I don’t want to have to start at the beginning. I want to start with a BANGIN’ blog and a BANGIN’ YouTube channel. I want to post a video tomorrow and have a million people view it and like it. I want to be a Super Star blogger / YouTuber!
So instead of doing, I’ve been day dreaming for months about what I wish I was doing. I think it’s time to actually start doing, don’t you? I have to remind myself that to become a Super Star, it takes work. All of those blogs and YouTube channels I’m following all started somewhere. Most of them started like me, with a crappy camera and only a handful of loyal followers. The key is that they were dedicated and determined, and turned their dreams into a success. (This can be applied to almost every area of your life by the way.)
I have a couple of dreams for my blog. The main enjoyment I get out of it is touching and inspiring people. That is the main reason I love music so much. I want to be able to relate to people out there and help them also find joy in the things I find joy in. Another thing I love about blogging is it inspires me to try new things myself. I wouldn’t say I’m super creative; I mostly get my ideas from other blogs. But I LOVE trying ideas, styles, recipes, crafts and so many other things I discover out there on the amazing interwebs.
So I guess what I’m trying to say is, “I’m back!” I have to start somewhere, and I’m starting now.
On an exciting note, here is my new coral nail polish and some sweet Texas pride.
