I love that I can achieve such great shots with my little old iPhone! As much as I love to carry around my big DSLR, sometimes it’s more practical to have my phone on hand to capture those instant moments for my instagram and other social media.
As I write this post, I’m sitting on my floor, in a pair of paint cladded leggings and tee! …I’ve been painting! Planned extensions and redecorations underway of my home, as well as a new home office. As you can imagine I’ve been running helter-skelter trying to find bits and pieces to fit perfectly in the office space and moving things about in general. It was about time that I got a proper office space as things have been growing very quickly with the Blog and YouTube (having transformed from a hobby to a job-hobby*) that it made sense to have a place where I can just work and focus all my energy on my content, filming, editing, blogging, email handling etc. …and yes, I do everything myself!
Sometimes it’s hard to rely on people all the time, so I’ve had to learn to do a lot of things myself, and balancing them all isn’t always easy. Needless to say, I always keep the faith that all the work I put in “in front of the camera” and “behind the scenes”, will pay off.
I planned on having some videos filmed but it’s been quite difficult with the renovations, and also my mind has been on other things, one of which is my poor papa, who’s been very ill. He’s doing better now, so thank God.
While scrolling through the interwebs yesterday, I came across this quote…
“The road to success has many potholes. You’ll fall into some-and they’re messy. Not only will you have to climb back out, you’ll have to dust yourself off, refocus, recommit, and keep going.”
…and it reminded me that sometimes in life, even if things are a bit hectic and difficult, you’ve just got to get up and keep going.
Choose happiness and remain positive.
*Job-Hobby: A term I coined for what I do. It’s a hobby because it’s done in my leisure time, but now that leisure time is all the time… like a job, but more fun!
