I Will

This might get weird…

I am about to be 40… where do I go from here?

I am a man that has put my family on YouTube for over 8 years. Most of that was daily updates of our strong family life which has evolved into our two talented boys playing baseball and my super amazing wife making beautiful creations for her clients while in that exact time span, I have felt lost.

I am constantly trying to please our audience.
I am constantly trying to please other creators.
I am constantly trying to please my family.
I am constantly trying to please my friends.
I am constantly trying to please my soul.
I am constantly trying…

I am one person.

I am at a point in my life where I need to decide to live MY life for ME. I have so many ideas of what I am; who I am, but I never follow through completely to fulfill those ideas.

I am going to be the ME that MY soul needs. YOU can either accept that and enjoy it with me or not; that is up to you. I have plans moving forward to make me accept me for me. Life will continue to be here; people will continue to be here… I will continue to be here striving to conquer everything that is thrown at me. I will.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.



  • Awesome!! So happy for you. You need to always make sure that you are making yourself happy first and foremost in anything you do. 🙂

    I plan to always be here and enjoy it with you!

    Hello Erik…I am new to your YouTube channel. I have been enjoying watching you and your family’s everyday life.I want to thank you and your family for sharing your lives with us. For somebody who has not been fortunate to have a family to share those kind of experiences with,your channel has made me feel welcomed and I feel like I’ve been
    right there the whole time.Even though I have come in a few years late I have really enjoyed watching your boys grow up right in front of my eyes.You and your beautiful wife have done a very outstanding job raising them into soon to be young adults.Does my heart good to see a family striving to be just who they are, a hard working mom and dad raising two kids in a loving and kind way that everybody who sees the videos can appreciate.Again thank you and your family for sharing your lives with us. In my opinion your family should be the shining example of what a family should be.
    Stay in good health…Your new YouTube family member from Maryville,Tennessee,
    Bryan Kirkland
