“i’m way too good at faking it” 🎶 @sadgirlsloan
So so good to finally feel like myself again. There’s so much I could say, but to keep it brief, I’m just finally happy and joyful again. Giving myself time to breathe, saying no to others expectations (or at least what I thought they were ), starting over to only working on what I’m passionate about and gravitated towards, separating work from my personal life more, and most importantly allowing God to direct my heart and steps have all been unequivocally important! Its been too long feeling like someone I wasn’t and I finally feel like my heart and mind have been healed and renewed to where I used to be so long ago! I’m happy ❤️ Thanks for listening! - Gabriel 🤓
new intro I made for the vlogs 🙌🏼🔥 so pumped how it turned out! (inspired by: @sean_erman )
happy new year everyone! “behold, I make all things new!” -revelation 21:5 now, this is going to be an update post, if you’d like to read it. i think it may encourage some of you : ) at the beginning of december i kind of reached the end of my rope, going from day to day not feeling like i had room to breathe or think or rest. i’ve never been one to stress about stuff too much, but recently stress and worry and anxiousness have become a new norm in my life. everyone around me kept encouraging me with this verse: “be anxious for nothing.” (philippians 4:6 ). i would accept the verse but wouldn’t really think about it for too long. however, after hearing it so often from so many people, i really began to think about those words. God is saying, “be anxious for nothing.” God calls me not to be anxious, or worry, or stress about anything and if i’m doing stuff that does make me feel stress, i am sinning. then i continued to realize...the things that are causing me to feel stressed are also causing me to be distracted and focus less and less on my relationship with Jesus...which is also sin. now, all my work and projects that i was so fixated on weren’t inherently wrong, but the load of them caused me to slip to a place i should not be. because of this, stress and anxiousness slowly turned into what felt like depression. after being at such a low point i decided to simply finish up everything work related i was obligated to for the year, and just take some time over the holidays to best figure out what was wrong with my heart and mind. so far, i’ve realized a bit (as i shared above lol ) but i’m still on this journey of healing. i’ve started therapy over the past few weeks which has been very rewarding thus far. excited to see where it goes and how much it helps! also, my wife, jess, has been such a support to me during this time. i cannot thank her enough! right now we are currently on our two year wedding anniversary trip. it’s been so rewarding and restful spending time with both jess and Jesus, and i couldn’t think of a better way to end 2018 and kick off 2019! “come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and i will give you rest.” -matthew 11:28
this time of year is the best 🎄☃️ went ice skating for the first time in years! #ad thought we’d be terrible but we weren’t too bad lol 😂 we vlogged the whole thing haha and used the citi mobile app, which helped us save time to spend the day ice skating and baking cookies. go watch! link in bio!
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas 🎄⛄️ I shot this entire music video on the Samsung Galaxy Note9 (go watch the full music video on youtube )! I’ve always wanted to push myself and try to shoot an entire video solely on a phone, so I was stoked to be able to do this with @samsungmobileusa ! Very proud of myself and so impressed with the #galaxynote9 🙌🏼 #withgalaxy

Happy Thanksgiving from the Conte’s 🍁😄❤️ Jess and I are spending Thanksgiving by ourselves this year.
