A SURPRISE FROM YOUTUBE!!!
- Wednesday, 21 November 2012
So last week, I received a MASSIVE package in the post. I didn't remember buying anything online so I just assumed Tim ordered something for himself. When I found out my name was the recipient, I was totally baffled.
The box was MASSIVE and I struggled taking the whole thing apart. When I opened the box, I was not prepared for what I was about to see. Since then, I have been smiling NON-STOP! I felt like I must share this moment with you all and also share a few words too.
You can watch the video below to find out the surprise <3
About 2-3 months ago, Youtube notified me that since I surpassed 1 million subscribers - they were going to send me an Honorary Gold Button. I don't know where I read this but somebody said was gonna be 'buckle sized' so I was expectig it to be small. Nonetheless, I was super excited about this news. They also gave me about $1500 reward to use towards filming equipment but the gold button was what I was most excited about. They said it will take about 7 weeks but months passed by and I started to worry about my gold button being lost in the post.
I did not expect the gold button to be this size. It's absolutely HUGE and super duper heavy. I was home alone at the time and I just sat on the floor and wept (from joy of course). However, I am guilty to admit one of the first things that crossed my mind was "Wohhh! What if I melt this? Will this be worth crazy bucks?" lol. But don't worry! This gold button is PRICELESS to me. I will guard it with my LIFE before somebody tries to melt it.
Why is it so important to me
Looking at it everyday reminds me just how blessed I am. I look at the word '1 million subscribers' and I am amazed. How did I get here? What have I done to deserve you all? I am baffled every single day. It just overwhelms me and it feels like I am living in a dream. In fact, I think Youtube made it this big so won't miss it in our homes. Looking at it motivates me to work more videos. I feel that buzz I had when I first started to make videos.
I tried my best in the video to put into words just how thankful I am but I don't think I can ever be able to express just how grateful I am. It almost frustrates me because I have so much appreciation for you all and I hope you can feel my sincerity. My friends & family have been wonderful to me gearing me on but there is no doubt that my greatest pillar of support comes from you all- a group of people I haven't even met in real life (to those I have met, it has been a real blessing to have met you in my life). It was "strangers" that told me I can do it. It was "strangers" that showed me what support looks like. I never take your support for granted- not even for a single minute.
Thank you so much for finding me.
Thank you for deciding to stick with me.
Thank you for inspiring me.
Thank you for your constructive criticism.
Thank you for building me up.
Thank you for showing me what I could be.
Thank you accepting me just the way I am.
Thank you for your encouragement.
Thank you walking this incredible journey with me.
Thank you for helping me become the person I am today.
Thank you for giving me meaning in what I do.
I could go on and on thanking you guys. Thank you thank you thank you a million times and more.
If you watched the video, you'll know that it's my dream to release a book one day. I hope to reach out to all you beautiful young girls/guys out there and it is in my prayer that you will all realise one day that you are capable of greatness. I know I know, my writing skills isn't too great. Some of you are even laughing right now. I know I have a lot of writing skills I need to brush up on for sure. Dreams aren't accomplished in life at ease. Overcoming obstacles just makes everything even more worth it. So yep, I'm not even sure how everything is gonna happen but I know one way or another I will FIND my way to make it happen. I'm excited and optimistic about the future.
