Lately, I've been asked to create video messages. Some are as short as 30 seconds and some messages are much longer. I am lucky that my parents help we make and post these videos. It is pretty easy to do with a little support. Just like anything, it takes a bit of time to think about what you want to say and why you want to share it.
Do a YouTube video.
Everything worth doing takes a bit of planning. I like to write out what I want to say using Keynote on my iPad. Images help me get really clear about my message.
I'm really thankful that I am growing up in a time when we have computers and social media. I love that I can tweet, blog and make a YouTube video that can be watched by friends and supporters all over the world and especially in Cape Town, South Africa for all the Ocean Warriors at www.aoca.org.za.
Here's to sharing your message and remember, even the smallest voice can make a huge difference. Time to share your message. Are you ready?
A few weeks ago, my mom asked me if I wanted to make a vision board. I wasn't sure what it was, but I was eager to learn more. I found out that a vision board is a tool to help you figure out what you want to do or what dreams you have that you'd like to make happen.
It can include cutting out colourful pictures, drawing, printing words or sentences that mean something important to you.
I had so much fun creating mine. It didn't take long at all. In 30 minutes, mine was done. What was really cool was that I knew I wanted to take scuba diving lessons, but I didn't think much beyond that idea until I made my vision board. Once I looked at all the pictures and words that I pinned on my board, it was amazing to see my dreams and wishes pop out the way they suddenly did.
Soon after I made my vision board, I researched where I could take scuba diving lessons and all the details I needed. Now, my goal seem much more doable.
If you haven't made a vision board for yourself, I hope you'll give it a try. Just let yourself dream big. Don't be afraid to pin up all the things you see for your life. My mom always says that everyone has greatness in them. I believe her and I think that making a vision board is a helpful way to explore ways to let your greatness shine!
