Thankfully, it was flowers instead of rotten tomatoes…What I got up to in January and now.

Yes! I started my YouTube VLog Channel this January. It was something that I wanted to start doing a while back, but kept pushing it back and getting jittery until sometime last week, my little reminder that I set for myself prodded me after I had written a short poem in a restaurant.

Of course, the voice of procrastination tried to convince me to put if off till the next day when I would feel more comfortable but the little voice of encouragement within me asked ‘What is the worst thing that can happen?’ What do you stand to gain? How would you feel if you don’t do it? Once I clarified these thoughts in my mind, I pressed the button.

One thing that I have learnt, is that there is never a perfect moment. It may never be perfect, but what I know for sure is that, you are the one that perfects your moments and days as much as you can. It didn’t turn out so badly and I got some decent feedback as well.

Why am I vlogging you may care to ask?

Asides from reading poetry, I want to use it as a platform to start working on my Inspiration and Motivational channel as a Lifestyle coach. However, it’s one day at a time and in stages. There are so many learning curves and things to be done.

Here is my second Vlog below, if you would like to listen and this is the linkΒ for the previous one just in case you missed it.


All that jazz.
I listen to the tinkles of the water
The thrums of the guitar
And the deep rhythm of the bass

No words said
You stare me in the eyes

The mirrored look
Caught within your pupils
Reverberates all the Love
Trapped inside

Aching to flow out
A syllable at a time.

  1. Great advice about love. I love to read along with your words while you speak. You should include the name of your youtube in your vlogs. Normally I can just click on the video itself and it’ll take me straight to youtube but for some reason I can’t this time. It may just be my phone.

  2. What a wonderful video — I agree, you’re a natural! I love reading your posts, but hearing you say the same kind of messages out loud is even more resounding. I feel motivated and inspired, and excited about what new opportunities I can find to show and share love today. Thank you Jacqueline!

  4. Lovely poem. But an even more lovely message in the video! Truly, there is too much hate nowadays. And maybe the love is out there and flourishing but it’s not taking center-stage. That’s a problem really. And you’re right, it is a waste when people bottle up their love. I try not to. Because it is my hope that by giving it away, that I’ll receive it back. And I give it earnestly, so that I have no regrets.
    But I should live for today because tomorrow is not guaranteed. There are still some I need to tell that I love them more… SomeONE rather that I need to talk with… And I hope the courage will come to me so I can be free! πŸ™‚ You’ve got me smiling.
    Sidenote: I love your comment call-to-action “I love it when you decorate my heart with your words..” Well, I certainly love yours! Why not decorate each other? πŸ™‚ Much love as always. Thank you Jackie (:
