Letting Fear Rule My Life

For the longest time, I have been letting fear rule my life. It has ruled every single aspect it could of my life. From personal to professional. From marriage to parenting. When I say every single aspect, I mean EVERY. SINGLE. ASPECT. of my life. Fear has prevented me from being who I really want to be.

Today, I’m letting fear go. I need it to stop ruling my life because it is ruining my life. There is no more hiding, it is my time to shine. Today is the day I start living. Tomorrow is the day I start sharing my real life with the world. Tomorrow is Vlog day 1 (well technically today is day 1).

I don’t even know why I have let fear rule my life for so many years. I’ve never been one to let other’s opinions of me take that much of a hold on me to where I cannot push forward to pursue what I love in my life.

To be honest, I know that tomorrow I’m going to be fearful when I upload my first daily vlog because I know that there will be someone that will have something negative to say about how I do things with my family and my children. But I won’t let that fear stop me from uploading a video. I’m going to let that fear push me to do greater things with my talents, share my life with my friends, family, and the world.

Please bear with me as things on not only my blog but my vlog (YouTube Channel) change over the course of the next few days, weeks or even months as I get more confident in my ability to be in front of the camera, as my editing and vlogging skills grow. Be sure to subscribe to our channel to see all our new videos.

Things will change and I will grow. I just hope that others join me on this journey and see the value in our family that I see.

Seeking Companies for Paid Placement and Sponsorships

I started this blog in January 2015, in hopes of blogging and vlogging our way to home-ownership. While I’ve invested a lot of time and money into this… I’m not getting the results I want to see from what I’ve been doing. So I’m reaching out to more and more companies starting July 13th. I’ll be writing letters to home builders that have new properties in an area we would love to live, well-known companies that have been known to “sponsor” other regular people, etc.

When we vlog we can do paid placements (drinks, food, clothing, etc), paid blog posts, and even sponsorships.  Our goal is to purchase our first home as a family. Kevin and I are in desperate need of having our own home again. Our kids need their own space again, they need places to play, a place to do their homework during the school year, a place to eat their meals, and a place to just act like children. Kevin and I need a place to relax, prop our feet up and take it all in. We’re trying to enjoy our family, but in all honesty we don’t really have time to enjoy our children or each others company. We’re too busy stressing over the fact that we’ve over stayed our welcome, how we’re going to afford bills because we’re spending over $800 a month in groceries (that’s about $400 more than I’m used to spending). Over the last 11 months, I could have paid off at least three credit cards with the excess money I have spent on groceries since moving here. So it’s sad to see that our money is sort of getting wasted, especially since half the stuff I buy seems to disappear (the kids, Kevin, and I hardly ever get the things we specifically buy for our family of 7).

See we’re so stressed over silly little petty things that we could avoid if we had our own place to call home.

I’m really hoping that we can find some corporate sponsors, a home-builder looking for a Brand Ambassador. We could really use some good luck, right now.  So I’m going to keep on exhausting all my options until we get what we need as a family.

Join us by watching our weekly vlog (here). Once we get our home, we’ll be vlogging daily! So help us reach our goal of home-ownership, please!
