Is Daily Vlogging My Calling?
In May of this year, I set out to start daily vlogging (you can read about that here), when it didn’t happen I then asked myself “Is Daily Vlogging My Calling?”… unfortunately, daily vlogging isn’t my calling at this time. My life is rather boring now that all 5 of the kids are in school. So what is my calling? Well, I’m not really sure. But what I can tell you is that it is okay to not really know what your calling is just yet.
Some people are born knowing what they want to do, others figure it out while they’re in middle school/high school, while others it takes a lot longer to really figure out what they love to do.
Are you a daily vlogger? If not, I will tell you that it takes a lot of time to record video, create B-Roll, and then edit it all together while still managing to tell a good story. I’m good at none of that. I’m still learning. I wish it came so easily to me. I honestly see so many ideas running around in my head that would make great videos, but my non-creative mind cannot make it come out the way I see it in my head.
Because I struggle with what my calling is and I really do wonder is daily vlogging my calling. That sometimes I get in this mindset that I need to do it. I need to just pick up the camera and vlog. But then when I pick the camera up I don’t know what to say or do.
So instead I sit here stagnant wondering when I will figure out what my calling is. I wonder if being a mom and wife is the only thing I’ll ever be good at. Some days I’ll even question if I’m good at that.
If you’re wondering what your calling is, don’t worry you aren’t alone. You have at least one other person (me) who still doesn’t know what she wants to do with her life.
Maybe 2019 will be my year where I decide if Daily Vlogging is my calling. Until then, keep pushing forward, keep trying new things and don’t let the negative opinions of anyone else get you down.
