Thank You.

Today I reached 150,000 subscribers on my beauty channel. The first thought that popped into my head was YES! another milestone, another number- A number that I knew and understood, but a number I could never picture as hard as I tried. 150,000 people? I can't even fathom it. I realize more and more every time I reach a milestone that it's not at all about the numbers. It's about the people who make up those numbers, like you reading this. As I thought about that today, I felt compelled to say thank you- but not just a post on Twitter or mention in a video like I do all the time. I wanted to write to you in a more personal way, and the best way I could think of to do that was my blog.

It is honestly impossible for me to put into words how grateful I am for what Youtube has given me. To any of you reading this, thank you. Thank you for subscribing. Thank you for watching my videos (and enjoying them, hopefully). Thank you for giving me 150,000 friends. Thank you for being there for me when I feel like no one else is. Thank you for supporting me, and my dream to become something. Thank you for making me feel like what I'm doing is helpful. Thank you for allowing me to have my dream job. Thank you for giving me opportunities. Thank you for everything.

I hope you know that each and every one of you is extremely important to me. No matter how many viewers I ever get, I will always think of you as my friends- people I care about and want to make happy, and get crushed when I feel like I've disappointed. The most exciting parts of my days are when I get to upload a video and get your feedback. Although I still struggle with the small amount of haters that love to criticize me, I am overwhelmed with love and kind words from so many of you. The feeling I get when one of you tells me I made your day or that I inspire you.. I can't explain how much that means to me. I am forever thankful.

Wherever Youtube takes me and even one day when it's over, I will always have you guys in my heart. I love you so much!

Love,
Lindsey
