At the start of the year I had this great idea that I was going to vlog my year so I can look back and remember all the good parts and re-live those memories. I’ve probably set myself a big task (already behind with videos….), but I’ve set my goal and I am going to hit it.
I was born in Zimbabwe and moved to Europe when I was 9/10.
The majority of my extended family live in Zimbabwe and I miss them so much everyday. My brother and cousin live in America, I have family in Asia and Australia. Needless to say we are all over the place and it’s very hard to be so far away from the people you love.
I’m grateful that I have my parents and sisters in the same country or I’d be one very heartbroken gal.
I think my great (mhm) idea to start vlogging my year stems from this. There are a lot of special moments I have missed and vice versa for my family around the world. Family are important and life can change at the blink of an eye. Just because I don’t see my family doesn’t mean I shouldn’t share my life with them and take interest in their life.
I get so happy when my cousin watches my videos and shares it with my aunt. Or when my brothers long term partner ,who I haven’t met, has watched my video and learnt a little more about me. Its a connection into their life and its a special feeling.
I can’t wait to document and share my year with the ones I love. I am also excited for the moment New Years (too soon!?) rolls around and I can playback my highlights of 2018
Have you got family dotted all over the place!?
