Hair Today Gone Tommorrow

On Wednesday I started my first day at the beauty salon for cosmetology school and I am so excited about it. I would have started 6 months ago but my beautician was having a hard time securing an approval through the State of Michigan. After hearing about all of her ups and downs I now understand what the people who call me everyday to become licensed mean. So 6 months later here we are pumped up and God is good!

Yesterday was the first time I started sharing the news with family and friends. First up was mom.....

Now I expect criticism from momma clark so it really wasn't such a shocker when she said "Girl you always doing something" Momma has raised me all my life and she knows my personality to the T. I love her so much and I know she loves me too so her lil jokes don't even phase me no more. Later on however I started to tell some other people about it and amazingly they said the same thing but it wasn't such a welcoming feeling. A few of my friends have know me to have my hand in a bunch of different things so I get that. But they don't really understand the inner workings of my mind and WHY I do what I do. Not that I have to justify every action but I will since It will make me feel much better.

#1 Im single! - as much as I hem and haw about being single, it REALLY is a blessing (at times) I can do what I want when I want how I want and the list goes on. Don't want to stay single forever (read: I wanna be married next year) but it helps when It comes to making quick decisions and I don't have to mull it over with God and my spouse.

#2 I don't have kids - oooooh yea, one day I want 4 God willing but right now is NOT the day, so why not work 2 and 3 jobs.

#3 I envision my future - My future looks like this: Me retired from my 9-5, married with 2.5 little ones doing real estate deals (investments and selling) and working at my own hair salon. To me this is the sweet life, I control my hours, and I will get to spend oodddles of time with my kids.

#4 Its my life - Sometimes you just can't sweat the small stuff. I admit I do take things to heart but I have to realize the place the negativity is coming from and let it go. People don't mean harm I know, but I also know some people stunt their own growth by NOT planning and daring to dream.

I currently have a license to practice real estate and on my way to getting a license to do hair for ZIPPO DOLLARS!! (a normally 6-11k program) eventually I will also finish college debt free. No I don't want to be the jack of all trades but I do want to unleash all the gifts I have been blessed with and my biggest gift is VISION. I may not get to the place I am seeking instantly but trust me they all have a place in my life.

So if any single folks out there let this be encouragement to you as I say you can do what cha wanna beee what cha wanna beeee!!

I hate it when people say stuff like that... for instance, I have two friends who say, when I change my hair (because u know I do a lot), "you always doing something to your hair, keep your hands off of it."

People are idiots... I'm not going to use the word hater (because I hate it). lol But they are complete idiots and offer unsolicited opinions when they cannot understand you. Keep doing your thing because there ARE people who support you, Mik, like me!!!!! And just expect those few confused souls (as disappointing as that may be).
