What I Really Want for Christmas

What A Week

December 10, 2018

I encourage everyone to challenge themselves. It has been such a rush, I think I want this to be my life forever.

For those just tuning in, I made a plan in October to spend my entire month of December challenging myself. The biggest component of that is Daily Vlogging and last week I made a video every single day. I will admit that it was a slow start, with my first video being pretty bad (and boring) and my last video being one of my favorites. You can watch them here (but maybe skip the first one lol):

 

Daily Vlog Challenge: Episode One
Today marks the first day of the race, that is Daily Vlogging. I'll be posting one video a day, five days of week for the rest of the year. This is a short introductory episode, but lots more to come.

Tuesdays With Tim *Very Funny*
The first episode of Tuesdays With Tim. This week Tim puts Barack Obama on hold to sit down with me and answer some important questions.

What I really want for Christmas
On day three I talk about what I really want for Christmas. Spoiler alert, it's not a car.

A Social Media Experiment
What could you gain if you deleted Instagram and Facebook off your phone? In today's episode we dive into the topic of Social Media and how it has affected my life.

My Fully Functional Design Studio
Today I open my doors and let you into my studio where I designed everything to maximize my productivity.

 

But, I think that is sort of the point to this whole vlog challenge, or any challenge. Is to get better at whatever it is that you are doing. I hope that by the end of the month, my videos are awesome. So good I'll want to shout on top of a rooftop for people to watch them (hmm, maybe I'll make a video about that).

I feel so good this morning about my accomplishments, but also I'm just proud of myself for following through on this. This whole thing is terrifying for me. Each day I wake up worried that I'm going to fail. Almost like I'm just going to have this major mental block and not be able to produce something. And then everyday I do (good or bad) and it's so liberating. I'm proving to myself everyday, that I am capable. Everyone should feel that way. Everyone should have that confidence that they can do anything. There is something so incredibly powerful about that.

And this feeling has carried on into other aspects of my life. I randomly picked up running about a week and a half ago and I've always avoided running my entire life. Last week I ran every single day and I watched myself become progressively better. Each day I ran for longer and some days I challenged myself to run faster. 

The best part of it all? I sleep well every night (for the first time ever in my life). I'm not depressed this month (the first time in years) and I feel like I am in the best shape of my life.

I get that it's only the first week, but checking-in, I feel great and I'm ready to knock out the rest of this month.

Watch out 2019, I'm going to bend you over and... well, you get the point.
