I have too many ideas. Seriously. IT.IS.CRAY. I have about five notebooks all scattered about the house, one in my purse, one in the car, plus my iPhone, so that hopefully when the brain crack ideas comes I can write them down as fast as possible and be able to continue on with whatever other idea I’m in the process of trying to execute. I can’t decide if it’s a blessing or a curse. It’s probably both.
I cannot execute them fast enough. I am pretty much constantly inspired and I want to do them all! I want to make a video about this and blog about that, paint this or DIY that. Even as I am writing this post, I am like, damn, this could make a great video!!! So…this may become a video eventually. We’ll see if the idea gnaws at my brain enough. I DO want to do more vlogging. Just talking about things that are relevant to me. But I digress…..
Writing in my journal more and making the videos I have made have helped some with the problem. They have helped me turn the pressure valve down so my creative energy isn’t at a about-to-explode-level anymore, but I’m not yet where I’d like to be.
I think blogging more might be my solution. Even though I would LOVE to make a video about everything, I simply do not have the time or resources to do so. I am going to try to blog more about some of my thoughts and ideas that I cannot (at least presently) put in vlog form, because for some of my ideas, I think it will be an easier way to get them out. But I’m not gonna lie, it is hard to decide what ideas are worth executing vs what is not, and what should be vlogged vs. blogged! The decisions!
But all in all, I am just so happy with how things are going right now. I am approaching 700 subscribers on YouTube! What?! In less than 9 months, I have gone from 50 to almost 700 subs! To say I’m not a little overwhelmed would be a lie. It’s like I suddenly got a lead foot driving down the highway that is my life! My productivity in general is probably up by 500%. I’ve maintained my apartment better than ever, I’ve made a video almost every week all year so far, I am working more hours since taking a new position at work, and I’ve never been happier!
I am an advocate for staying busy now more than ever. It has done wonders for my mental health.
To hard work and pursuing your dreams!
