Why Do I Do This?


How many times have you asked yourself that question? Why do I do this? Why do we do anything? Honestly. Think about it for a moment. Why do you do the things that you do? Why is it that you are doing the job that you are doing? Why is it that you read the blogs that you do? Why is it that you write the posts that you do? Why is it that you create the things that you do?

I have been in many situations lately that have ultimately asked this question. This question has been on my mind a lot lately and I’ve been trying to figure out an answer. In all honesty, I think my answer to this question will continue to vary and transform as I continue to grow and learn throughout life. So while I can give a “right now” answer to the question – like I did in my YouTube video on why I do YouTube. If I were to look at this question again in a few days, weeks, months, years, whatever, my answer could be completely different. That is part of being human, I think. We are constantly changing and growing and our opinions of things do the same. So here are some of my “right now” answers as to why I do some of the things I do.

WRITE – I write because it is a way for me to unpack my thoughts and give a sense of being heard without having to speak to anyone specific. Another reason is because I believe that life is a story and it is meant to be shared; so writing is a way to tell the stories and I can share them at my discretion. Writing is also a way to provide the feeling like I have been heard, whether or not anyone has actually read what I have written is beside the point. I have written the words, therefore they are not on my mind taking up space there.

YOUTUBE – As I mentioned earlier, I made a video about why it is that I make YouTube videos. After making and posting the video, I had a few more thoughts on the topic. I ultimately make videos because it’s fun and it’s another way to share stories. So it goes back to the whole “life is a story” philosophy that I essentially live by. It’s also a way to remind myself to not take life too seriously. When I edit I see how I am. I can tell when I’m not truly feeling excited about my video topics or if there is something else on my mind that is distracting me. The whole editing process helps me take a step back and honestly look at my present perspective.

Those are the two hobbies that I spend the most time doing, so those are the only things that come to mind at the moment. I’m interested to hear why other people do the things that they are most passionate about. If you’d like to share feel free to do so!

Until next time… Kara
