I’ve slowly started telling my family that I’m making and uploading videos to YouTube. I kept it to myself for a while, because I didn’t know how my family would react. I knew most of them wouldn’t understand and I was afraid of having to explain it to them; because I knew I wouldn’t do it right. But honestly, I was afraid of having the idea rejected by my family. I liked having YouTube be my own private thing, my secret. But as my channel grows, it’s taking more and more of my time and energy and I had to let people know what was going on so they could try to “understand”.
There are only two people’s opinions in the world that matter to me. And I was terrified of telling them both.
I love how the first thing out of Aunt Stella’s mouth, after I explained everything was “And how can you bring God into this?” Ha ha, it wasn’t “That’s stupid” or “It’s a waste of time”. Just, “How can you bring God into this?”
I just smiled and looked at her and said “How do I NOT bring God into it?”
Aunt Stella always knows the right thing to say.
My ‘slogan’ or ‘catch-phrase’ is “Love Will Save the Day”, for the banner/header on all of my social sites I have this slogan with John 3:16 tacked on the end.
I call my fans ‘fireflies’; little lights of hope and joy in the dark – Matthew 5:13-16.
I also pray often that God would use my channel and bless it.
But like my name says, Because She’s Star. How can I be me, without having God in my YouTube channel? I don’t know why, but this was a confirmation to me.
That I’m doing something right.
That I’m on the right track.
That I’m in alignment with God.
I’ve just got to be me and trust. And love myself, like I tell my fireflies.
