I just really haven’t felt like writing lately. There is always an excuse. Too busy, too tired, nothing to really write about or say anyways so why bother. Again, all excuses. But, we all have a voice and we all have things to say. Someone, somewhere out there needs to hear our story. So here is part of mine today…
I never in a million years thought I would begin the beauty industry. When I was younger I was one of the shyest people you would ever meet. I wasn’t very outgoing and I was super quiet. But somewhere in high school I started doing everyone’s hair when we would go on youth group trips. Everyone would come home with blonde hair. LOL After graduating I tried college. 3 times. Hated every minute of it and just had no idea what to do. I knew I loved hair so I was going to take a leap. So I jumped in head first. It took me about a year and 9 months to finish bc of life circumstance around that time. I learned a lot about myself, my talent, my skills, my limit. I grew into who I was meant to be. I have met some amazing people on this journey. I have made almost nothing to making a lot and believe me it can happen over night. I am not as shy and quiet anymore. You just can’t be in this industry. I’ve learned to communicate and be open and honest with people. I have been able to use my creative skills as well as business skills. It has been awesome. I have had the best clients a girl could ever ask for! They have been there through some of the best and the worst times for me. I am truly blessed. When I think back to when I came home from college and told my mom I was never leaving again, lol, and she told me I needed to get a job, go to school, or get out, I am so thankful I chose the road I have. It hasn’t been easy and still won’t be but it has been challenging and I have grown and learned so much from so many and will continue to do so.
So never give up on what you love. Follow your heart, chase your dreams and do what you are called to do. You will miss out on so much if you don’t. And thank you to all of my clients past, present, and future. I wouldn’t be where I am or who I am without you!
