These Are My Dreams - Podcast Episode #2
Today I really wanted to share with you EXACTLY how it took me three very long years to gain one hundred subscribers on my YouTube Channel. It was an extremely emotional and challenging three years, and I’m sharing with you some very personal and private moments of my life and the challenges I’ve faced during the process of creating content on YouTube. I explain how I used to be an extremely shy and quiet person. And I explain to you how being a YouTuber made me realize some very valuable life lessons and things about myself that, at age 42 years old, I am only now realizing about myself. By me sharing my story and journey with you, I hope it helps motivate you to also share your very own story with the world. One video at a time! You’ve got this dudes!
Please let me know if you enjoyed this video and if my story can relate to you in any way? I’m so curious if by me sharing these sensitive life moments with you can help you in something challenging you are going through right now? You are NOT alone. Don’t ever give up. Chat with me in the comments section!

I had a lot of fun making it, so let me know whatcha think please.
I hope y’all enjoy ;)
There was once a little doggy named Minnie
And she was named after a Mouse
She lived very high and mighty
Yes she was The Queen of her house
Minnie The Mouse went on lots of adventures
Traveling very near and quite far
And while her life at home was filled with great leisure
She also spent lots of fun time in the car
She traveled to all of the farthest reaches
Yes that car took her to very beautiful beaches
That car took her to many little parks
Where she went on lots of lovely special walks
The window rolled down and she felt a lovely breeze
She visited lots of places and got to eat very special treats
Her shiny fur was the pure color of the best pumpkin pie
And she was the special apple of a certain little one’s eye
And Minnie was shaped just like a perfect little burrito
Because she really loved her tasty puppachinos
Plus cookies and cupcakes, pies, pizza, or even crumbs
No food was not too tempering for her to succumb
Because she would eat anything inside of the house
Yes this was the luxurious life of Queen Minnie The Mouse
She even traveled far up Up UP to the North Pole
Just to make sure she wasn’t given a piece of coal
She met the very man himself Mr. Santa Claus
And sat upon his lap with her four delicate little paws
She told him she was being such a very good little Doggy
And could he please bring her a squeaky little Dolly
Yes, Minnie’s travels let her to feel the wind in her fur
All the while her Magical Life with us went by in a blur
And her favorite ride of all was inside the stroller
Sitting side by side with her favorite little toddler
That little boy and her were quite inseparable
Yes it all was most undeniable
Minnie’s days were also spent with her little matching Bullseye
And we cannot forget both tiny Pua and tiny Hei Hei
And last but not least we must remember her little Fish
Then one day they All helped her make her Birthday Wish
She wished for happiness till the end of days
And mostly never ending time to play
To sleep and eat and dream and run
And simply for that LIFE of pure fun
Minnie got her special Birthday Wish come true
And she now lives on in our hearts, while eating lots of good food too. ~
~ This poem is dedicated to:
The life and many adventures of Minnie The Dachshund Mouse;
All those who will miss her precious presence in this world;
And to all those who miss their own furry creatures every single day. ~~

Well, we’re really in the dog days of summer now, that’s for sure. Known for being the hottest of hot days of the summer during the time period between July and August, the dog days come around this time each year. This season is absolutely screaming for you to have some quality time in the water... in the pool, in the lake, in the springs, or in the ocean. And let’s not forget about popsicles, freezer pops, lawn sprinklers, and kids playing baseball games in their neighborhood street.
When I look straight up toward the sun in the middle of summer and see that bright, hot, and hazy glare staring back at me, I remember being a kid and having so much fun during this time of year. But then the weather always failed me... it got cold out again and summer was over. Along with the hose and the lawn sprinklers and the ice cream melting in my hand as I ate it off a wooden stick. So long until next year. When you grow up in Illinois, summer really is a defined time period each year; and as certain as you are that it will come, you are just as certain that it will end. And out came my puffy winter coat and big, heavy winter boots.
But now that I live in Florida, summer heat and that endless summer feeling never end. Like, for real! Weather was the number one reason I moved here and remains the single best reason I continue to live here a few years later. When it’s January 21st in cold Chicago it’s very hard for any Illinoisan to imagine a place where you can stand outside by the ice cream truck and eat ice cream off a stick, on that very same day, year round? Those places were only in my dreams before Florida.
I remember seeing in the news recently that Universal Orlando Resort opened a new hotel on their property. That’s pretty big news for Universal, as they have far less on-site hotels than their competitor, Walt Disney World, down the street. Well, they named this new hotel the Endless Summer Resort. And almost immediately after the announcement, in some online travel forums there was talk making fun of the name. Tons of folks complained and made fun of the name Endless Summer for a hotel. How can a hotel be named Endless Summer? They said that isn’t a name. It’s more like a state of being. EXACTLY. A state of being. Universal got it and they got it good. I know exactly why they named the hotel Endless Summer. Endless Summer is not just a feeling, it’s a complete way of life down here. What better theme for a resort catering to tourists from out of state, from let’s say places like Illinois, than to evoke and market coming to stay there based on that endless summer childlike feeling we all want to savor and we all want never to end.
I definitely plan on visiting Universal Studios in the near future. And now with the very reasonable room rates, the chic, contemporary and surfer vibe decor, Endless Summer is definitely a place I will consider staying at. But in the mean time, I’ll be soaking up the sun and enjoying doggiest of dog days of my Endless Floridian Summer. So come on down. The water’s warm and the sun never rests. I promise.
