Small Gestures Shake The World


The NYC earthquake was a tiny ingredient in creating an amazing day.

I often talk about the things that go wrong, or the things I wish to achieve, but for some reason or another I just cannot attain. Today was different. Today August 23. 2011 I was absolutely livid, because I had what I can only describe as a good day. It wasn't because I gained a coveted One million subscribers on YouTube, nor did I win the lottery, or secure a life changing business deal. It was a day full of small positives, and it made all the difference. To think all of this centered around my first earthquake experience living in New York.

Around 1:55 my good friend VdeoVxn accused me of shaking the desk that we both happened to be editing at. During this accusation I countered with a very mature "Yeah, ok. Dude you're shaking it with your foot" we both remained still for a moment and noticed that we still felt a small swaying sensation. Only to hear the neighbors then shout that their house was moving. Within that ten second period we knew that something was happening. I wanted to be the first to upload on the matter, so I grabbed my camera and created the messiest, funniest, most real video I could create within the moment. A video that didn't need any editing, and was sent right to the internet. Within 20 minutes that video's views were frozen at 314. A sign that the video had garnished a mass amount of views and the rest of views were being authenticated. We like to call it the viral effect. I've been dreaming of such a video for quite sometime now. Today it happened.

As that was taking place I noticed a mention from @KingofTheWeb they let me know that my video "Save a Creative" was featured on the homepage of Kingofweb.com, which would be the first time anyone has so publicly recognized any of my videos, and shared it to such a wide audience. It was a big moment for me which came from such a tiny gesture.

Finally, today I met Chloe. A beautiful young woman who had such a sunny disposition. She was so interesting that I bought her a frozen strawberry lemonade, hand delivered. She smiled.

None of these things have drastically changed my world, but what they did do is help to create a complete experience. If someone would have told me that wonderful times would be born from feeling the small shake of a 5.9 earthquake I would have written them off as insane. Yet here I am penning, and sealing this day as amazing. Appreciating the small gestures is what gets you through the tough times. I will remember this day the next time I am stuck trying to figure out how I can take my career as a content creator to the next level. There is truth in the statement that the whole is only as good as the sum of it's parts.

Cheers and Livid Teddy Bears!
