What makes you feel alive?

I haven’t written anything in a while.

I’ve wanted to film something or write something for some time now, but somehow just haven’t done so. I slightly edited and republished one of my older posts on this blog. I hope that one day I will be able to expand the story; I have ideas and short bits but there isn’t enough material for part II yet…

Anyway, what makes you feel alive? I’m not really trying to get philosophical here, although if you want to that is completely fine by me. I just started writing this post because I was watching the videos below. I had only seen Bertie Gilbert in a video collaboration with another YouTuber until now. I don’t know how I stumbled upon his vlogs, but I did. The way he spoke, filmed and edited his videos really captivated me. I loved how he shared his thoughts and feelings in his videos. I already really liked how you can clearly see how affectionate Bertie and Savanna are towards each other. It’s so endearing.

Coming back to the title of this post: you know you love something or someone so much in a moment that it makes your heart ache a bit? That’s how I felt when I watched Bertie’s videos.Obviously I don’t really know him, or have seen many of his creations, but there was something about this person. And this feeling reminded me of some of the most wonderful times I’ve spend with my friends and people I love(d). This feeling is one of the things that make me feel most alive.

I know you might be cringing so much right now, and you may think I’m just being a stupid, emotional tw*t, but I don’t care. Earlier this week someone asked me if I consider myself to be someone with a lot of emotional baggage, to which I answered:

“I’m more an emotional person rather than someone with emotional baggage?… I feel like that makes up so much of who I am, it’s what makes me different, and I’m proud of it. I may be emotional or sentimental, but I’m not weak.”

Anyway I just wanted to share this with whoever-comes-across-this-post. I hope you’re having a good day, or failing that, I hope you’ll feel better soon. The videos to which I was referring earlier are linked below.
