It seems that within the last few years of my life so much has changed, some good, some bad and some that I could have never predicted. I am so blessed and grateful to GOD for allowing me to go through all the things that have shaped me into the person I am. I have finally learned to sit back and let GOD do HIS work without input, distraction or an opinion. I remember ten years ago when I thought all I wanted to do was to teach. I just wanted to work with children and allow them to see that they all have the potential to do everything and anything that they want to do. That is still a goal of mine and now I know that my wildest dreams are within my reach. It took me a little while to accept the life that was given to me with all its challenges and obstacles, but now, I know this is me and I am happy with every part of me.
Yesterday, I signed my paperwork to become an official MAC makeup artist and as I was sitting there all I could think of was how I followed through, tested myself and pushed until I reached my goal. It wasn't easy and I still have a ways to go, but I am an artist and I do provide a service that I am proud of. I believe that GOD saw that I had something special to offer and pushed me in a direction that could help me establish me as an artist. I love what I do and I love making people happy. I love that someone saw that I had a talent and a skill and gave me a chance to prove that. This is a thank you to all those who allowed me to practice, those that told me I had a talent and those that never stopped pushing me. So I will keep you updated on my new job and all the new directions that GOD will lead me to go.
