“No one can cheat you out of ultimate success but yourself.” – Raplh Waldo Emerson
Welcome to my Beauty Confessions Blog! I am beyond excited that this is my FIRST blog. I have so many fun things I want to share with you it was very hard to decide which topic I wanted to discuss first. But, after thinking long and hard about it, I decided to kick off this blog about my current season of life and how I ended up here!
I recently went to a woman’s Christian tour called “Belong.” One of the speakers, Jen Hatmaker, discussed that God has given each of us individual GIFTS! She spoke that we need to recognize those gifts and find our lane and we will shine, we will discover our purpose, and we will know we belong. And I sat there thinking that I did choose to recognize one my gifts about 5 years ago when I decided to pursue one of my dreams and start my own beauty company that retailed chic salon capes.
Never having in mind that I was currently pursuing my dreams using the Gifts God has given me. I remember before starting my new adventure I was held back because of fear. Fear can do crazy stuff to a person! But I chose Fear is not my boss and that the light is. So stepping out of my comfort zone and choosing to move forward with my dreams has been the best decision I have ever made. And guess what, the lane that I have chosen has been the most purposeful and fun decision yet. I can truly say that this is the best season of my life!
I have the honor to say I am a mother to 3 incredible children, I now own a salon apparel company called Cover N Style, I have started a new store on ebay called Style N Style Retail 35 that sells quality brand clothing at bargain prices, and I now I have the honor of blogging to you! And guess what? I truly feel like that this is the most purposeful part of my life yet!
You may be wondering what gifts I have recognized and used toward my current season in life. Well I absolutely love and admire the beauty industry, I love fashion, I love being a mom, and I love lifting up and encouraging my people to be the best they can be so they can move forward in life with confidence and happiness. I truly do! Because when your happiness is revealed your beauty shines!
So my first questions to you are, have you found your lane? What gifts have been specifically given to YOU? And if you are having a hard time recognizing those amazing qualities, go to your closest friend and ask them what gifted qualities they see in you! And think about which season in life have you been the happiest and reflect on that.
