Well hello! I've been away taking some time to enjoy being in the moment of Spring before the hot heat of Summer evades my bubble. As I type this though, it already has unfortunately as Summer seems to have wanted to come a bit early this year. Truth be told though, I've been away because I have been inspired to make more content for YouTube, which I will get into in a bit.

    Time away from writing honestly was a great way for me to look inward on my life and see what was working and what wasn't, and how I could make my life more...authentic. I actually had moments where I truly wanted to write, but I wanted to wait for the right moment, and today was that day. 

    As you all know by now, I am doing Keto again, so much of my time has been taken up by enjoying delicious food, constantly shopping for Keto goods, watching King of The Hill, and working out again. I honestly don't like working out and I'm sure there are so many people who feel the same way - BUT - it's good for the soul and uh... helps me go to the bathroom.

       Lately, I've had an increase in abundance and I firmly believe it's because I have started to express gratitude on a daily basis. Every day I sit quietly and think to myself everything I am grateful for or anything that deserves blessings. It's so therapeutic and really helps my day start off just right. Whenever an opportunity presents itself to me, I always express gratitude and it ALWAYS brings me more abundance in return. Give it a try!

    Amongst all of this though, I have been doing a lot of cat sitting lately - ALOT. It's great though because not only is it another source of income for me, but it gives me the chance to play with kitties since I can't have one right now. As much as I love my guinea pigs, there isn't much to do with them, so having cats over is refreshing! I'm fairly booked too for the next few months and it had made me realize that I never imagined that my experience caring for animals could turn into something worthwhile.

Moo being Moo

    Dimitar and I have been spending lots of time outside though. I honestly feel like Spring came and gone too fast. I truly miss the cool breeze that left me feeling like a new born. Now I simply feel like a slug on hot concrete every time I leave the house - yuck. Either way though, I'm grateful because with the heat brings crazy thunderstorms which I have always loved. 

    Speaking of thunderstorms, I have become obsessed with tornados. Is that weird? I've discovered a YouTube channel that uploads all kinds of tornado videos and for some weird reason, I'm hooked. Every time I'm outside with Dimitar now, I always find myself pointing up at the sky and saying things like, "Just imagine...a tornado is right in front of you...". Crazy, I know. But, I'm hooked. Also, I looked into tornado tours in Kansas and wow are they pricey! One day soon.

    Last but not least, after many years and many jobs later, working on my YouTube channel has finally paid off! I was doubted along the way - by myself even - but I persisted. After so much time and energy spent, I am so happy to be able to say that I am making enough money from YouTube to pay my bills and it's so surreal! It's a start of something great for me that I have dreamt of for so long and it's finally happened. I always told myself that 2022 was going to be a great year and I was right!

    So to the many years of constant work, dedication, and visualizing my dream job into existence - I'm so proud of myself for not giving up. I now understand how overwhelming it feels to others who have experienced the same as I have and I can only wish that more people push forward to achieve their dreams. It's an amazing feel - like you've been handed a pair of wings after walking your whole life and you can now go anywhere. 

    I've always strived to be an inspiration to those around me or around the world so my standards are pretty high for someone my age. I've been through some extremely tough experiences that have left me miserable and depressed - close to giving up - but it was through my passion for life and creativity that have helped me see beyond the pain and struggle. If you have a dream that you've been aiming for, I highly encourage you to keep going and believing in yourself!

Beautiful sunset

   Until next time! xoxo - Sarah
