As I sit down to write this post so many things are swirling through my head.  I am not where I thought I would be when I was in my 30’s.  I went to college to be a psychologist, got my BA in psychology and thought about getting my doctorate as well.  I figured I would have my own practice and have a great career helping others and feeling accomplished.

Reality…I got married before I graduated, got pregnant 6 months later and became a stay at home mom.  I have never used my degree (other than on my own kids) and never got to get my doctorate.  So about a year ago after having my third child and being out of the workforce for 8 years…I started to panic.  What would I do once Grey got into school.  Who would want me when I haven’t worked in 8 years…is this going to be the rest of my life..just staying at home?

I don’t remember the exact day I decided I wanted to learn how to do my own makeup and give my makeup bag an overhaul…but little did I know it was going to change my life.  I started to watch some videos on YouTube and went and bought some products.  It really surprised me when it came so naturally to me and I realized I was pretty good at it.  Fast forward about 6 months and I was introduced to my photographer friend Michelle.  She does pinup shoots and asked me to be one of her pinups.  I did my makeup for my shoot and some of the other ladies noticed and wanted me to do their makeup.   I realized then how much fun it was to see their expressions when I show them their transformation.  I WAS HOOKED!!  I then joined Younique and started selling makeup and everything seemed to start making sense to me.

before and after

A little seed was planted by God after continuously praying for him to show me something that I could do to help women and also feel fulfilled.  Who knew that would be makeup?  I started researching makeup artistry and what I would have to do.  I have been looking at different options for about 5 months now and I finally today….SIGNED UP FOR MAKEUP SCHOOL!!!  I am so excited and so nervous to start a journey I never pictured for myself.  I have met so many amazing women already through the art of makeup, that I can’t wait to see how many more I get to meet and bless.

I will obviously be keeping you all updated on my progress and what I am learning!!  I am so excited and I love showing my girls that you are never to old to follow your dreams, and that it is okay if dreams change along the way!!

XO,
