It has been a CRAZY summer for yours truly to say the very least.
This girl right here recently moved away from good ol’ Yuma, AZ to LAS VEGAS!! As much fun as this town is known to be, I moved here in a professional capacity. I am attending the L Makeup Institute in early September and will also be working on my port with some of the most amazing photographers in the country. I will also be doing a little hopping around to take other classes and workshops. I have been looking at places like LA and Chicago as of late and cant wait to take them in and learn and network as much as I possibly can.
This is my dream. It has ALWAYS been my dream and I feel so fortunate to have the chance to experience all these things that I never imagined I would be lucky enough to get anywhere near. There are actually LOTS of big things coming up in my life both professionally and personally. And everything that I do from here on out is a stepping stone for the life that me and my loved ones are going to have. I feel so excited and nervous at the same time. The pressure is high but the rewards are great and for that I will do anything I can to get where I want to be.
My whole world has changed SO much in the past year and it continues to a little more every day. I can honestly say, I have never felt this close to my life being as close to perfect as it can be. Once again, I have a long way to go and lots to do but its right there on the horizon. Its impossible NOT to look around and know how lucky I am. Things havent always been easy for me, and I havent always “had my eye on the prize”. But I think that comes with growing up and changing your perspective a bit. Keeping a positive frame of mind, learning from mistakes but not living in them, forgiving others and yourself, realizing your potential, keeping ONLY good people around you, and not letting anything get in your way.
I could have never imagined 365 days ago that I would be where I am right now. That I would find the love of my life who believes in me and wants to best for me and mine. And who would do anything to help me achieve my dream. I feel like…this blog is a little corny and kind of all over the place but I guess what I am trying to say is: even when things look really bad and you don’t know how to find you way out, all you have to do is CHANGE YOUR MIND. Like The way you think about the things and people around you, about how you think about yourself, and about what you want. The day I started letting go of anger and negativity my whole life started to change. I hope that you and your loved ones will give it a try, and hopefully have some wonderful things come your direction as well.
Just keep dreaming 🙂
