it's so funny, when i finish an edit like this i get the craziest feeling of butterflies in my stomach (often confused with insane anxiety). i think it just reminds me how much i love what i do... sometimes i lose sight of the reason i started creating. it's because i LOVE it, not because anyone else does... but that's a plus, too. πŸ’›

i woke up feeling really thankful. thank you to everyone who showed love on my video i posted yesterday. i know it was mother's day, haha! i love my mom so much. but looking through video we had, i caught that clip and couldn't stop crying. anyway, life is very beautiful and coincidental. for a very long time, i lived through fear without any courage to fail. not until recently did i realize that failure is actually a blessing and that we all should learn from it as much as we can. life isn't supposed to be perfect but we all have the ability to evolve our perspective for the better, and i say evolve because i truly believe we never change. we merely evolve and grow and become better each and everyday through struggle and mistakes. so today, take that leap you've been afraid of taking because like they always say, you'll always regret what you didn't do, rather than what you did do! have a great day 😁

my granddad taught me what a camera is... who knew i'd need this footage someday to look back on and smile. ❀️ edited by my little brother @marcelvsmarcel

after the 5 years i've been posting to instagram religiously, it's still so hard to come up with a caption. πŸ˜‚ anywho, i've been thinking a lot about the pressure i feel to post everyday and i feel like most of us tend to feel that if we don't post a 'banger' we are somehow behind... i just want to say "fuck that!!!!" take your time. art shouldn't be rushed. social media has been amazing to me but i think it's important to unplug and move at your own pace, not compare yourself to others, & remember that there's always more than meets the eye. artists used to work on projects for years and then finally unveil in a gallery/show, now we share everyday, all day... people tap and move on from it within seconds. do you struggle with sharing pressure? i know it involves a lot too... likes, followers, etc. there's so many variables to consider. i am very curious of what these thoughts spark in you! just know you're not alone and i know someone somewhere needed to read this the same way i do sometimes... βœ¨πŸ’•
