Violette Clark intro video

Violette introduction Video

Hello everyone!  I finally did it – i finally created an intro video introducing myself.  It’s something i should have created a very long time ago – it’s much more difficult to do than creating an art video which is about the art and not you so much. I hung on to the video for 3 weeks before releasing it into the world as my inner critic was having a heyday!  It was pretty vicious saying such things as:

“your smile is crooked – you talk out of the corner of your mouth!”

“you’re old….give it up!”

“your teeth are crooked”

“you blather on too much – who’s going to care what you have to say?”

“check out the porridge you left out on the stove….idiot!”

and the critic went on and on until i was metaphorically huddled in a corner in the fetal position.

So I went out and bought this t-shirt on special which allows me to be “perfectly imperfect”.



I figure better done than not done at all right? So i released the video into the world.  And i received some lovely and kind feedback on Facebook which was awesome!  Thank you dear sweet souls!

For those of you who are not on Facebook I have shared a bit about my health journey – my health was pretty terrible last year…..culminating in a diverticulosis diagnois (as well as a number of other things).  I had a big attack which almost landed me in the ER so i decided to make a few lifestyle changes. The changes included walking every day, adding meditation and cutting down on my wine consumption as well as monitoring my food choices. As a result i feel more peaceful, have lost 5 pounds which i had wanted to lose for some time and have not had the terrible pain i had been experiencing.

So it’s onward and upwards for me.  What are you adding/taking out of your life to live the life your truly want?

Love, Violette xo

    I thought you did an awesome job Violette! Always wonderful to see your face smiling and sharing… BUT I also know where you’re coming from. I think we all do the same. I have a yellow tooth, hate the way my mouth moves when I talk…double chin… and I even retrained my smile because I didn’t like it!! It’s funny really isn’t it?? I love seeing your cottage as well.. well done for feeling the fear and getting it out there anyway! 😀 You’ve inspired me to be brave and think about returning to my blog too. x 😀

        Oh absolutely! x It’s mind blowing. This book I’m working on at the minute is making me all kinds of anxious – it’s so terrifying really…. x BUT oh so worth it. x

    I LOVE LOVE your cottage, inside and out! The intro was superb. We all have that same critic, ignore it!

    That’s a sweet and perfectly lovely video Violette. I know all about the inner critic and so you can just tell yours to shut up for me. I’m not having it badmouth my friend…lol

    Hey, I was just there in White Rock last weekend seeing my son’s new house for the first time and meeting my inlaws (also for the first time.) All right there in your neck of the woods. I’m looking forward to the early summer and warmth and our new grandson and spending time with my son and his family at Crescent Beach. 😀

    Excellent video, Violette! I understand. I’ve yet to do my intro video too. It is the toughest one to make for sure! Yours turned out really beautiful. I may have to jump in and brave creating my own. It’s so silly how we are so often our own worst critics. I would never have imagined any of the things you mention your inner critic was saying to you. I just always think that seeing your art & pictures of your home makes me really happy & that I bet you would be a really fun person to know. Please tell your inner critic that I said that! 🙂 Beautiful video, Violette!
