After months of collecting clips for this requested video, here it is!
Most people think that when they see my travel photos, perfectly-curated instagram feed (now inactive for an indefinite period), or have watched my videos is that “I have it easy”. A girl living in Japan making kawaii journaling process videos + blogging her life for a living? Wow! (spoiler: I don’t earn that much from youtube / here. Every content that I upload has a purpose & has the similar one why this blog exists.)
Sure, I’m living here in Japan, my dream country… but it doesn’t mean that I’m just always out there having fun creating content. Maybe happily struggling & thriving would be the better description? Haha!
Thinking about it, I am still in this uncomfortable phase where every penny is counted. I have to think of the bills to pay and to live within my means. Sometimes, I have familial responsibilities and I need to also help out. When I have extra, I always think, how can this blessing help me in the future? This is why I’ve chosen to invest & reinvest in the things that I’m most passionate about even though I know everything will take time. Time passes by & I know that in my heart, if I do my best, I’ll eventually reach this goal I have in mind & I’ll just laugh about the times when I struggle. I think that even if I reach my ultimate dream, there will still be struggles too. By that time, I hope that I’ve become stronger. I look forward to the day when I just share about my entire journey & hoping that it inspires someone out there, young or old. I can only share some stories here for the meantime, haha.
Since I am feeling a little bit pensive today, I just wanna share something.
