Start Something (Even When You’re Not Ready)

So I did something new yesterday…

I’ve been wanting to get into film for a while now, but I just… haven’t. Fear has likely been a big factor. Not fear of embarrassment or failure, rather fear of not being ready.

Not knowing how to edit. Not knowing what to say. Not being enough.

But all of that is silly talk. “Readiness” is a mindset. I don’t have to know how to edit to be ready, I just have to shoot something and learn and practicing editing. There are a countless number of Adobe Premiere and After Effects tutorials, I can watch.

I don’t have to know what to say to be ready either. I can script out stories. I can just say what I would normally say in everyday conversation. I can learn to be comfortable with communicating verbal on camera as I go.

And of course, I’m enough. As long as I’m being genuine and having fun, that’s all that matters. We are all more than enough. You are more than enough for what you want your life to be. Don’t let anyone (including yourself) tell you otherwise. Everything else is just a skill of piece of knowledge we can learn.

I want to put some time into each video, so I’m not going to do a daily video (at least not right away).

It took me five times as long to edit this video that shoot it ha!

Right now, my aim is one film a week. I’d like to experiment with different things I’m interested in tech, books, creativity, music, ideas, art, acting, etc.

Well, I guess like and subscribe and don’t forget to ring that bell! 😄😅😆
