My Imperfect Life

Never in a million years did I think a Youtube tag could effect so many people. If you don't know what a TAG is, it's basically a video where you answer a questioniare that's extremely random. They're usually made up with fun questions to let your subscribers get to know you a little bit better. I got tagged by the beautiful SamanthaSchuerman from youtube to do the My Imperfect Life Tag. Basically you tell two life struggles you've had and then you talk about 2 positive outcomes for each struggle whether it be a postive life outcome or a personality trait. I was extremely hesitant to do it because I had no idea what to talk about. I thought about for a bit and then just turned the camera on and began talking away. 22 minutes of talking to be exact. I barely edited anything out. I have seen people cry while doing this tag which is amazing. It's like youtube therapy! Haha! It really makes you think about yourself in a more positive light and reflect on your hardships.

All joking aside...this has to be one of the best videos I've made for my channel. I've recieved so many letters from subscribers or people who have found my channel. They've been telling me about their life struggles which may be similiar to mine or very different. I had the idea to make another channel where I would basically answer questions or give advice. I have already recorded videos for it, but I'm debating whether to do it or not. Not to toot my own horn, but I really feel like I have something to offer. I'm an extremely strong individual and I feel like I've been through so much in my life. I feel like this video and the response really validated my instinct to start another channel. I feel like if I can help people with my experiences and mistakes and share them, it might either prevent people from going down the same path or give them comfort to know that they're not alone. I'm just overwhelmed with the positivity and inspiration I have gained from my beauty channel that I want to do more. I started youtube as a hobby and I LOVE makeup and beauty, but this video made it all worth while. I reached people and in everything I do whether it be singing, youtube, teaching...etc. That is always my goal. I want to reach people and make them happy. What do you all think. Yay or nay on a second channel?
