I have wasted years chasing perfection. While I don’t consider myself a perfectionist, I struggle with the idea of being wrong. Wrong in what I say, what I do, how I look, and how I function in this world.
It isn’t a unique obstacle. Millions of people struggle with idea of showing the world who they are. My struggle has brought me here….to this question: Who is Kristin?
When I was going into my senior year of college, I created Chrystyn’s View. It was a YouTube channel and a blog. I had visions of becoming the next big YouTuber in the days of Michelle Phan and the Fowler Sisters.
But two years later, I found myself a young wife and soon to be mother and I couldn’t keep up. Before this appreciated transparency on TikTok, I couldn’t imagine getting on camera during my episodes of depression and creating content.
Years passed and I looked back with the troublesome question of “what if?’
While I tried to get back into blogging here and there, it was hard to justify the time to sit and create content that didn’t immediately generate a check.
So here I am, 12 years after the creation of Chrystyn’s View to tell you who I am and what Chrystyn’s Corner is.
I am a wife, a mother, a small business owner, a writer, a creator, and a woman finally coming into her own (while fighting imposter syndrome).
Chrystyn’s Corner is the evolution of Chrystyn’s View. It is my story and views shared in a way that is not focused on being the next big thing in influencer land. But is influenced by the idea of not waiting for it to be perfect to share. It is also me stepping out of my fear of “not being good enough” and into publicly offering my services as a content writer and creator.
I appreciate you stopping by my little corner of the internet. I am excited to finally step out of the fear of my website or blog not being perfect enough to launch and making my first post.
