like every one else, YOU are the center of YOUR life and (should! be) the only architect as well. but you are surrounded by so many things what makes you feel: „i would love to but i can not, because..“ you have a job. promises & projects you need to fulfill. you have bills to pay, probably even depts. you have to take care of your parents, your property, your possessions or collection of whatever. you are responsible for your wife & kids & love all your old friends and kind
maybe you heard what YouTube did to our sailing channel after one year of growing a beautiful audience there: https://sailliliput.com/post/time-to-move as our video blog is still very important to us, (read here why: https://sailliliput.com/post/for-free) just recently, after 7 months of cutting us off YouTube re-monetized us, again out of nothing with no notification or any information nor reaction on our dozens of e-mail requests. from our YouTube followers we got so many
