It’s still really crazy to say; “I have a girlfriend” because I’ve been too focused on myself lately to really commit to someone. That and no one seemed to have the energy that I’ve been looking for. There was always something missing or things just didn’t seem right. But with her, it’s as if we’re two souls that got separated somewhere along our journey that have finally reconnected. It’s effortless, there’s no force or friction and we absolutely adore everything about each other. So, I thought, why not bring you guys along as I give her a gift.
We attract the type of individuals that we are. We reflect our standards for ourselves onto others and like a magnet those reflections are what enter our life. I had to change everything about myself in order to be someone how loves himself and was okay with cruising solo for awhile. I always knew my person would eventually arrive but I didn’t know when and I didn’t know in what type of packaging. Then, it finally happened. With a lot of hard work, luck and the right timing I suddenly had an encounter that felt old, instantly connected and just sort of felt like home. I don’t know how else to describe it but all I know is I’m exactly who I was always meant to be and now spending time with who I was always meant to spend it with. We both know we are perfectly fine without each other but are so undeniably grateful to the universe for allowing us to find one another. It’s like the ultimate dream, the ultimate team and ultimate proof that magic is real.
I woke up this morning feeling extremely grateful. Honestly, I’m so fortunate to be able to wake up everyday, do what I enjoy, work on the things that I feel like making, buy the things I like and spend time with someone who I really love sharing my time with. I don’t need much else. Success is a measurement of happiness, not a catalog of stuff. I hope you are all having a wonderful day and thanking the universe for all that you have.
I’m really trying to figure out how to a structure a dedicated block of time where I can stop everything I’m doing and purely focus on creating content for Youtube and the Podcast. I honestly never realized how much time and effort goes into, coming up with a topic, setting up the shot, entering a good frame of mind to capture the energy and message that you’re trying to exude and then clean up and edit the content. With that being said, I finally have a new video going up today.
Episode 001 of the SS/OUNDWAVES® Podcast is now live. You can stream through Anchor and Spotify or if you want to listen on YouTube you can do that as well. Please like, share and leave comments as it helps me spread the channels (gotta love algorithm). Also, let me know what I should talk about next?
I started filming the next episode of Deals & Steals yesterday and realized I didn’t shop too much in October. Mostly due to being busy or spending my shopping money on tools to help build my channel but I really love the few pieces that I was able to find. Especially the things that I just got back from my tailor. It was my first time trying on the trousers and shoes together and boy is it a vibe. I can’t wait to show you guys the goods and let you know how much I paid, I was shocked myself.
I have a lot of fashion content in the can and realized that it just isn’t personal enough. Don’t get me wrong, I love shooting and talking about clothes but the whole purpose of me even exploring this project (YouTube) was so we, you and I, can get to know each other better. I realized throughout my whole photography career, I have given you very little of myself. And you, well, you have given me so much. It’s time that we talk about things of substance, talk about life and things that we battle so we can get through the fight together. To initiate this dialogue, I decided to open up about issues I have within myself. I figured I would ease into it with my five tips of how I combat my weight issues and stay in a good mental and physical space.
