Rant, oh Rant !
Well, I know some have been waiting on my post about the veteran that I met some days ago. I promise, it's on its way. I mean, to me it was a moment that I cherished because sometimes I do enjoy listening to someone's life story. However, I have not had a moment to sit down and listen to the recording to quote him properly, let alone write the story.
I am currently laying down in my bed and just came across an article on Forbes that I could 100% relate to. Before I get into that, let me tell you what my younger sister Ariel said to me. I came out of the shower and as she waited patiently in my room for me, she asked me...Well, rather she told me " you haven't been recording any videos." It hit me like an earthquake, with so much shock. I responded to her and said "I know. I know" and she asked me why and which Vlog was I up to. For her, my eight-year-old sister, to prompt me into getting back to something that I enjoyed doing, and to notice that I had slacked off left an impact in two ways. One, I am someone that she looks up to. I did not or do not ever want to be of a bad influence to her. I want her to understand that life does get in the way, but don't ever give up. I don't want her to think that I gave up because, between you and me, she is a huge fan. She literally stalks my youtube, it's actually adorable. And secondly, sometimes it is extremely hard to come by someone who genuinely cares about your craft and one who supports you and encourages you to continue. Lately, some random strangers have mentioned my blog to me and it hit me out of nowhere because it's humbling to know that others appreciate how God is using me. So, yeah. I am grateful that my little sister reminded me that I need to step it up and quit acting like I can't stay up an extra hour or two to get a blog post done!
On another note, my birthday is in 10 days!!! I am going to be 26 years old. God is so great to have given me this many years thus far. I have always had a journal but I decided that on May 8, 2015, I am going to begin a new journal to log my journey going forth as a 26-year-old. Another commitment that I am applying to myself, but I will hold it down. One day, who knows, my children or grandchildren will read it and think their mom/grandma was super awesome/crazy/beautiful/sad/happy/lonely/content/blessed.etc...
So, that's the end of my rant ! Real blogging to be continued.
