“If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living.” -Gail Sheehy
On Monday morning, I woke up looking forward to a new O2L video. It has become a tradition of mine. Watching the videos early in the morning makes my day, especially because they are always happy and energetic! It makes me feel that if they depict those five minutes so energetically, I can try and make my own life less boring.
It was a shock this morning when I woke up to the news of Connor Franta quitting O2L. However, he left the collaboration project on a positive note. Stating that the boys are his family and would always be. He also sent forth a beautiful message. He said that he was doing this for himself, and that what is his passion had now started seeming like a job. I completely agree with his words. It takes courage to admit what he did and I wish him all the best! You would still be our Frantastic Monday Connor!
He taught me a very important lesson as well. We do so many things for so many people in our lives, but in that whole process, somewhere we forget to live for ourselves. We are our best friends and it is only us who can make us happy. So Connor, I support your decision and will continue to stalk you on twitter 😛 and wish you all the love for a new chapter in life! Looking forward to seeing you with bigger and beautiful creative outlets! 😀
Always Frantastic :’)
