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!!
