Happy September!

Published September 1, 2019 by Shay Taree

It’s officially September and the day before my birthday! But besides it being almost my birthday I’m deciding to try and write a blog/post every day of September.

The reason why I want to try this is because I believe that I have a lot that I can discuss. Plus I also want to see if I can do it. I know that I post 3 times a week for my videos but I want to write more and keep up with it.

I also want to talk about things that I hope will help other people. But I also want to know what’s something that you want to accomplish this September? Or just for the rest of the year? Definitely comment down below because I would love to read them!

Finding Your Life Purpose

Published May 21, 2019 by Shay Taree

Finding your life purpose is something that I feel like many of us continue to search for. Sometimes we think it’s one thing but then it turns out to be another.

What made me think of this topic is because of a book I’m currently listening to which is called “The Greater You” by Trent Shelton. In this book he starts out talking about how he knew his purpose was to help people and he thought it would be through football. Well football didn’t end up working out and he ended up doing motivational speaking and that turned out to be his life purpose and what he was meant to do.

For me at the age of 28 almost 29 I still don’t know what my life purpose is or what I’m meant to do. Right now I’m currently working a pretty good job but I’ve always thought that I was meant for more but I just don’t know what. I do know that I enjoy helping others and putting a smile on their face.

So far one of the things that I’ve done that makes me feel like I might be heading in the right direction is by doing YouTube and trying to keep up with this blog. I feel like sharing my love for anime on YouTube and also my experiences when it comes to anxiety, trying to spread positivity, and also just anything else I can think of is putting me in the right direction but sometimes I don’t know.

There are days where I feel just so lost and feel like I should just give up but then I think about what I would be doing instead and it makes me want to continue. This is because when I see my thoughts going that route I realize that I would be very bored and even more loss if I didn’t have this blog or my YouTube channel.

Right now that seems to be the thing I’m praying about the most and that’s finding my life purpose and pursuing that. I hope that the Lord points me in the right direction soon. But now I want to know your thoughts on this topic. Do you know your life purpose? Are you like me and still trying to figure it out? If you do know your life purpose then how did you find it and how did you know for sure?

Comment down below and let me know. I’m definitely interested to know what everyone has to say. Also feel free to comment any questions you have or any topics you would like me to talk about on here or even my YouTube channel if your an anime fan.

See you tomorrow!

Talking About Routines: Morning & Night!

Published February 19, 2019 by Shay Taree

Now to be completely honest I love having a morning and night routine. Well I try my best to keep up with one. The main reason why is I love being able to have things in order and just having a set schedule makes things so much easier for me.

I promise it is like clockwork for me although there are moments where I do stick to it due to life in general or just something going wrong. In the mornings it’s me getting caught up with something that’s on YouTube. At night it’s me just being too lazy to put on my pajamas. Also a lot of times in both instances it can be me getting distracted by what’s on my phone.

This is why in the mornings I have downtime turned on so that my social media’s are blacked out and unable to be used. I also get really interested in watching other people’s morning routines on YouTube.

Trust me I know this can sound weird but this has really been helpful for me. Sometimes it gives me information on how routines are beneficial and sometimes it’s helps to give me ideas on what I can integrate into my routines.

Some of these things include meditating, having downtime for my social media’s, journaling, drinking water in the mornings, and also exercising. I realized doing some of these things in the morning and some at night made me more energized, focused, and productive.

So now I want to know if you have a morning or night routine? If not would you like to start one? Why or why not? Comment down below with your answers. Also I definitely recommend searching on youtube morning or night routines.

Quick Life Update: 6/9-6/15

Published June 15, 2018 by Shay Taree

Just like I said last week I’ve decided to do life updates each week since my life can be so interesting haha. But this week even though it’s been fun it has been kind of stressful.

This week started off kind of on a bad foot. I woke up in a complete panic and I’m not sure if it’s because my alarm startled me or the weighted blanket that I bought. Also that weighted blanket is actually pretty cool so I recommend it if you have trouble getting to sleep. But anyway, I also ended up just being in not so great a mood that entire day. I was just really sad and couldn’t shake off that feeling.

Then once Tuesday came I felt kind of worse since I found out that I didn’t get the job that I actually really really wanted. So of course I started to cry and just thought that I was pretty much not good enough. Also I was so frustrated since it seems like I’ve been looking for a job forever and nothing has happened yet. It just causes my anxiety to skyrocket and my depression to hit really hard. Makes me very thankful for my family and friends who really helped me during that time and helped me to see that it’s just not my time yet but it’s coming.

After I heard that and read a lot of those nice comments from people it put me back in to job search mode. I really started looking for jobs like crazy but was still kind of sad. From there though the week got a bit better since I got to hang out with friends and my boyfriend. That kept my mind off a lot of stuff and also gave me some time to think.

What I thought about was what I really want to do with my YouTube channel and blog. There is just so much that I want to do but I don’t know where to start. But I also realized that I love the ideas and suggestions that y’all give me for videos. I want to continue to get better at both YouTube and blogging and I know that one day this will be my full time job.

But that’s pretty much my life update. This week was filled with a lot of struggles and while I’m not completely through it it’s gotten easier. Let me know if y’all like these updates because I plan to get through them and talk about my experience with this job search and also the toll it has taken on my mental health.

So I hope y’all enjoyed this and tomorrow there will definitely be a new video and I hope y’all enjoy it. Plus feel free to recommend anything y’all would like to see on my channel or my blog. Have a great day and stay nerdy!
