Vlogemotions

I decided to try this after Lee did one of her own for the website Fort Thompson. It will probably be my first and last, not of vlogs but of this subject matter. It was really hard to do and made me feel really...exposed. And I think I really share of myself whole-heartedly but this left me feeling naked. But I couldn't not post it at the same time, because it felt too truthful. Anyway, here it is:

Vlogemotions

Vlogemotions is a way for everyone to come out of their shell and express the emotions that they have felt in the past week.
Tim over and Fort Thompson is running the whole thing, and I've decided to participate in it.
The rules are simple:
The Rules:

1. Post a video at least 1 minute in length but no longer than 3.

2. Speak about the strongest emotion you felt that week and why.

This can be joy, happiness, fear, sadness, embarrassment, humility, anger, etc. Whichever emotion you felt the strongest talk about this. Do so with passion and hold nothing back. This will give your readers the opportunity to get to know you better. It will also make your blog more appealing because people will want to come back and see your videos.

3. Put your blog into the Mr. Linky at The Fort so that all others can view your vlog posts.

4. Come back every week with a new vlog post and a different emotion.




And because it raises my spirits a clip from Dead Like Me, no swears I checked for all you GOOD Mormon boys and girls....*sighs*....you miss the funniest parts that way but I am being good!

VERY NICE JOB Wendy!

Dont be worried that people might not like what you have to say because thats not what this is about nor is it why they will want to come back. They will come back because you shared your truest rawest emotions that you were feeling at the time and there is something very compelling about that. I was drawn to your openess and honesty. I was drawn to you as a person as well as my empathy for what you are feeling.

I think we all feel those exact same emotions at some time in our lives. I know that i worry all the time about allot of things.

I do hope that you will continue to participate in Vlogemotions, and I am so pleased to meet you!

Love and Prayers,

Tim

Your not the only one who worries like that. I find I only feel better when I open my heart to my Heavenly Father and I really try to read my scriptures on a daily basis. Because I've felt like that often, too. Who am I and where the heck am I supposed to go from here? And how?? The only way I find peace is when I focus on making myself better.

I hope you feel better and have some more positive emotions coming your way this next week :) You deserve it.

I think that was brave of you. I couldn't have done that.

That was great, Wendy. And I'm so happy you participated too. It's great to show raw emotions sometimes, even if it feels wrong.
