Tonight was the first time in a long time where I actually got a chance to sit down and clear out my email inbox. I am so thankful for all of the wonderful fan mail I get from my blog. Thank you, dear readers. You're all truly amazing and inspiring. I just wish I had more time to respond to all of the emails I receive in a timely manner. Some of the emails I answered tonight were from all the way back in September. At least its better late than never!
I've noticed that the questions I'm most often asked pertain to beauty school.
Why did you decide to go to school?
Should I go to school?
Where should I go to school?
How do I know that beauty school is right for me?
These questions touch my heart because it was only two years ago that I was asking myself these same questions. Only there wasn't a blog like mine for me to reach out to. I had to dig deep inside and do a lot of soul searching of my own. I also seeked professional and honest advice from all of my friends who already worked in the beauty industry. Once I started my own research, I knew that one day I would write a blog with the intentions to inspire others out there like me and help readers make educated decisions that were right for them.
It's been a long road to get to where I am today. I am thankful for each bump I've had to encounter along the way. It not only helped me become a happier person than I was before, but made me truly appreciate the career I've carved out for myself over the last year.
My "Get Rich Quick Tip" to you? If you have a passion, go for it. Listen to your heart and follow your dreams. Squash the negative self-talk and don't listen to the negative people. Life is too short to stay at a job that you hate to get out of bed for or in a relationship that doesn't make you happy. Not every day is going to be without challenges, but those bumps will be a whole lot easier to conquer if you love what you do.
So go for it! What have you got to lose?
