I’ve let go of something big this week.
This week I was locked out of my house. Nothing big, but a gust of wind blew the door shut while I was doing a run to the rubbish bin and the deadbolt snapped shut on the harsh slamming of the door.
I was locked out, wearing nothing but a robe.
I thought it was pretty comical. So I went around the back and through the back fence hoping the backdoor was open.
Guess what? The back fence door was unlocked, but the backdoor was. At least I could sit on the porch while I waited for my girlfriend to finish her call she was on. I didn’t want to disturb her so I waited.
I then decided to record a youtube video. I was locked out and in a robe and I wanted to at least be productive.
I actually found this video extremely hard to record. I’m always writing lists on what I want to write about and usually have a bit of production value planned in my head.
This time, I couldn’t. I’ve learned a lot about letting go and surrender and realised I needed to surrender to my desire to make a video.
This means, letting go of all the other stuff and limiting beliefs around videos.
Up until this point, I believed I had to have all these limiting beliefs around my channel. That I had to look good, dress a certain way or my videos had to look a certain way…
As I was stuck outside with nothing but my desire to record a video, surrendering to that, I let go of all those thoughts and realised it was just two things.
Me and the camera, and also you guys 😉
So I recorded one. Since then, I’ve been recording one once a day. Will I keep it up? Who knows, but it’s nice to know that it’s really the content and ideas that make sense.
