Seriously, I’ve been thinking, planning, experimenting, and trying for months to put this together! This is a 30 day video challenge that I was encouraged to do many times over the last year by some wonderful people I’ve had the good fortune to meet. These are loving, caring, and supportive people who want to see me grow personally and professionally. The two usually go hand in hand.
I decided last month that today, 3/1/16, would be the day I’d start the 30 day video challenge. It seemed perfect; the 3rd month of the year, with 31 days (look forward to a bonus video) at 3pm. Right?!!… I like numbers, what can I say. I didn’t tell anyone my plan just in case I decided not to do it again; waiting until I could do it perfect that is… It was just yesterday I decided to start a blog at the same time. Why not do both I though, right?!!… 🙂
It was 3:43pm when I finally got up the courage to press start on my periscope video. Fear set in big and all day long I was thinking; I don’t feel great, I think I should wait until another day, what if I sound weird, I think I say um too many times, my voice sounds funny, what if I have nothing of value to offer, etc. Some serious excuses!!!
Then I got to thinking of all the reasons TO DO the periscope video TODAY! As I mentioned, I’ve been challenged many times, and it was time to follow through for myself first and encourage others in the process. My passion is Encouraging Self Care! Pushing yourself to grow, like I did to myself today, is a form of self care! The reason to do the videos on periscope is if I didn’t I’d most likely redo them to the point of ridiculous!!! The whole perfectionism thing!
Thank you to a few who’ve encouraged me with their videos and who I’ve had the chance to meet in the last year: Jen R, Amy W, Danelle D, Nadya M, John M, and Grant C.
I’d appreciate shares as I’m introducing and growing myself and my self care brand.
See you tomorrow and until then be well! 🙂
