So. As you all know, I am an average 21 year old girl. I still live at home. I work at a grocery store as a cashier. It’s definitely not my dream job, that’s for sure, but it gets me by for now. I do have many goals and dreams that I hope to pursue within the next few years.
A few years ago, back before Tumblr, and Instagram. Before I made my YouTube. We’re talking MYSPACE days here. I wanted to be a professional makeup artist. But then, few years down the road, I created this blog. AllThingsGirlyy. Started as just a photography blog, but now it’s a photography and beauty blog. Then I made my YouTube, after years of wanting to make one, but being terrified to be in front of the camera. I had a change of heart, and realized that I not only want to be a makeup artist, but I want to help others in the process. I want to make them feel pretty, and feel confident in themselves and who they are! I want to bring a smile to their face, even if it’s just through a computer screen,
I want to become a famous/well-known beauty blogger/guru.
And yes, I’m sure a lot of you are thinking, “Ughhh, she’s one of those girls. She wants to become famous through the internet just like everyone else.”
Yes, I do. But not for the reasons that most people want to be famous for. Not for the popularity, not to have free stuff sent to me all the time, not for the money. Don’t, get me wrong, that all sounds fabulous. But at the end of the day, none of that matters to me. What truly matters, is the impact I’ve made in another person’s life. Even if it’s small. You guys, I want this so bad. I think about it everyday. What do I need to do, what should I improve on.
I’ve always been into makeup and girly things for as long as I could remember. In the second grade, I wore makeup to school. My teacher made me take it off, obviously, I was too young to be wearing makeup. But that feeling it gave me. It made me feel pretty. It made me feel confident. Then, in the sixth grade, I was just starting middle school. That’s when my mom took me makeup shopping for the first time. Officially. I got a Rimmel London eyeshadow quad, Covergirl eyeliner, and a few other things. Just the basics. But I was ECSTATIC! All through middle school and high school, I would watch tutorials on YouTube. I would watch what they did, and how they did it. I would research terms online to find out what they meant. It went from being a hobby, to my passion. Everything I know, I have learned on my own, and sorta became a “self-taught” makeup artist, if you will.
Now, I’m not saying that I am great. Because, let’s be honest, I’m not. There are many, many other girls out there that are wayyy more talented. But that’s not stopping me anymore.
It’s not going to be easy, I know that. It’s going to take a lot of work, but I’m ready. I’ll do whatever it takes. I just know, and feel in my heart that this is what God wants me to do. This is my passion, and I want to make God proud of the talent He’s given me.
And what makes this all worth it, is you guys. Having such amazing followers, whom are so sweet, and supportive of me, really gives me that boost each and every morning to keep going. To keep pursuing my dreams, and I am just so truly blessed to have such great followers! I love you all so, so much and am so excited to have you all with me through my journey! Hopefully someday, I will be able to meet you guys, but until then, I am sending you all lots of love and big, BIG hugs from my computer screen to yours! :) <3
P.S. One more thing!
NEVER, EVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS! I believe in ALL of you!
