This video is celebrating collaborations in skateboarding and music
During the dark days when I was struggling with my mental health I also found the Steemit blockchain blogging site. Through Steemit I managed to find a lot of creative people to collaborate with. At first it was just musical collaborations but now that I have branched out into skateboarding and editing and so this is a skateboarding and music collaboration .
I first met this dude on Steemit under his guise of @soundwavesphoton or on instagram @daniel.covert .During the depressed days I would talk to these homies when things were pretty hectic and I couldn't handle going out and handling the real world.
I have been thinking about the collaborations I have done and the people I have met through social media and it made me come up with a concept of “look sideways” . Too many people are looking upwards at the people above them with more followers which they therefore assume means they have a better life. I have found it more constructive if you look to the side and look at who shares similar interests to you and try to build a community of like minded people. This is way more fun instead of gradually eroding away at your mental health looking at people who appear to have a better life than you.
With technology these days it is easy to connect and collaborate all you need it passion and motivation
