Today is one of those days that I'll remember for a long time. My YouTube channel is on the air! And I, a lifelong introverted and shy person, am going to speak to a virtual audience that I don't even know. Yes, to speak. In English. Not my native language. I think I'll need to knit all day to put up with this stupid anxiety.

You may ask yourself why I do this if I don't have the confidence enough. Kun Fu Panda 3 has the answer. Well, the master Shifu more exactly, as far as I can remember. Some weeks ago I went to the cinema with my nephews to watch that funny film. I love all those movies about martial arts philosophy, and don't mind if it is animated or not. The company was great, of course. As I was saying, Shifu told Po (panda) something really inspiring:
If you only do what you can do, you'll never be better than what you are.
Nice, right? So I thought, and wrote it down on my mobile. After thinking about that for a while, I realized that Shifu has just gave me the last push I needed.

I wanted to use YouTube to teach whatever I knew since the day that I learnt there, how to make a fishtail braid. It was probably 2008 or so. From them on, I've been following lots of channels, about many different topics. It was matter of time before I had one of my own. Why not one about teaching other people to knit and sew, my lovely hobbies? But would it be possible for me, a really quite person? After thinking for long time about all that stuff, I concluded that it'd be a way of breaking one of those mental limits that I had assumed during all my life. I want but I can't? No more! As a result, I've spent 3 days trying just to bear my face talking to me on a screen. And today, I can't say that I'm proud enough. But that's okay for me. By now, I can't do it better (oh yes I can, but I'm also struggling with my perfectionist personality!)

And today, as I said, I can announce Marie Feliz YouTube channel!! It's in English and in Spanish. It's about learning to knit and sew from the very beginning, what I wanted! Remember: we want to make our own clothes and dream about having a handmade wardrobe, right? There might be skillful readers that already know how knit and sew very well. But there may be other girls that need some help with their techniques or don't know anything at all about them. I begin Marie Feliz YouTube channel for all of those lovely ladys.

Next week, I'll release the first series of video tutorials. They'll be short, simple and easy to follow. Just like a quick audiovisual dictionary about sewing and knitting techniques.

And now it's your turn: Have you ever need someone in your life like Shifu? Are you trying to overcome any mental limit? Answer if you like, or just watch the video presentation of Marie Feliz YouTube channel. I hope you enjoy it!

Some feedback would be great. I'll see you on Monday!

Thanks for reading and have a nice day <3
