How many of us have dreams and aspirations for our lives that we put off time and time again because of self doubt?
A friend told me a year ago she had a vision for me, a vision where I would be helping women, that I would have women following my journey and calling on me for advice and at the time I didn’t believe it.
At the time I couldn’t see what I had to offer, why would people come to me?
My friend had told me I needed to do more with live videos and make up, that her vision saw me coaching women. Yet still I couldn’t see it.
Then I treated myself to some new make up palettes and did a couple of videos and something clicked….
One of the first looks I created that sparked my fire again
I always dreamt of being a make up artist, but I never felt like it was a world that I would fit into. I wasn’t pretty enough, I wasn’t skilled enough and people would judge me.
I didn’t think I was good enough, or that people would want to watch but suddenly my inbox was blowing up with messages from women who had copied a look I had done or tried a product I had used and then something clicked…
People want to see this, people are buying what I am using, how can I make this work for me?
I’d been approached by another friend about joining Younique but had dismissed it many times but I realised that this fit with the vision and what people want and it started to make sense!
Beka Fox, my mentor, friend and cheerleader
Fast forward to today, a long journey of personal development and self investment and cheerleaders supporting me and empowering me and realising that it doesn’t matter what others think, they won’t pay my bills!
I’m now doing what I love, and I have that following of women and it’s growing week on week.
It took me 35 years to finally say f$€k it and do what I wanted all along. I’m not a qualified make up artist yet but I am following my heart and my passion and I will pursue a course.
Have courage to try, don’t discount your own happiness…
The morale of the story is do what makes you happy, do what sets your soul on fire!
For me, when I get those inbox messages and pictures from women I’ve inspired it’s what fuels my journey.
I wish I had realised sooner that this was the path I was meant to be on…. but I realised and I am working on my dreams as a reality!
