Have you ever done something, something that you weren’t sure was a good idea but did it anyway because it was something that you had your mind set on for a very long time? I’m not talking about getting that tattoo you wanted, or texting the person you have a crush on for the first time. I’m talking potentially life changing things, the things that you speak to your dark bedroom when you’re trying to fall asleep, the things you hold closest to your hearts, the ones that you are afraid to admit even to yourself that you want because what if that makes it not happen? Yeah, those things. Everyone has one, something that makes them tick, something that makes them want to wake up in the morning and work towards. Well, I started mine the other day.
It was a rainy, boring Sunday. The kind that you spend laying in bed cuddled up to your dog watching YouTube videos because you don’t want to face the world. That was me, and as I sat there, watching people who made a living making vlogs about their lives, I wondered if they can do that, than why can’t I do what I want? Now, I’m not going to say what exactly it is, but it is something I will be working on for a very long time. If it doesn’t pan out like I hoped all those years, then I can chalk it up to experience and try something different next time. But if it does work, it will validate any ‘what if’ I ever had in my life.
So I guess what I meant for this post was really just to encourage anyone who is thinking about doing something, whether it be starting their own business or making a YouTube channel, go for it. I’ve recently come to realize that life is way to short to be sitting on a great idea or plan that you have for yourself because you are too scared to try.
