Last week I decided to do a mini-series of videos called “This week” where each day I would daily vlog. It would not be in the traditional way where you would follow me around and I would be very chatty but it would just be my life without all the filters.
Going through the entire week there is a common theme: thoughtfulness and reality.
I was going to take clips of me throughout the day sometimes just a simple clip of what I am doing to a little clip of some raw thoughts.
There is something about this project that was so different to any other type of vlog because I wasn’t trying to be entertaining. I was documenting my life. I gave raw emotions and what I was really thinking and feeling.For the record, this was not made for the viewer buompletely t cfor me. I wasn’t having the best of weeks and I decided no matter what the week was going to be like I was going to make these videos.
For the record, this was not made for the viewer but for myself. I wasn’t having the best of weeks and I decided no matter what the week was going to be like I was going to make these videos.
The video were between two and five minutes long and that is a very small space of time in comparison to all the minutes of the day. This was not my full day but a small snapshot.
I mentioned before my 100-day challenge and this was part of it because I had to be so conscious of day because I had to film it.
I was very upset and depressed this week and I think that it came out on the video but my purpose was not to have any sympathy but as a way for me to get to grips with each day as it comes.
We only post what we want on social media and we miss out the hard bits, which is stupid because it is the hard bits that make us human. Yet we celebrate our victories and achievement and never talk about the bad days and when we ever do it is seen as attention seeking.
Don’t think that sad or negative emotions are wrong and don’t ever feel like you should or shouldn’t feel something.
This was my reality last week – edited, yes, but unscripted and raw.
