Go After Your Dreams

I turned 39 last month and something in me changed. My world and heart has been shattered repeatedly over the last couple years. I lost two uncles and then my Grandmother in 2020, then my Granddad passed in February of this year, and lots of fertility treatments only to still not become pregnant. My grief left me so lost.


I’ve been a Makeup Artist for over 15 years but suddenly that was no longer fulfilling me. Makeup artistry was something I thought I would do for the rest of my life. But suddenly every time I would get an inquiry for makeup services, my anxiety would shoot through the roof. Why am I reacting this way to something that I was once super passionate about? When God wants you to grow, He makes you uncomfortable. And uncomfortable is exactly what I was.


I did some soul searching and it ultimately led me back to my dreams of becoming a Fashion Designer. Truth be told, I’ve had countless confirmations that fashion was what I should be doing but I chose to ignore the signs. So one day, seemingly out of the blue, I started looking up Fashion Design Schools, applied for one and got in. Another thing about the awesome God I serve…when your dreams are in alignment with His plan, “all things work together for the good”.


Friend, it’s never too late to go after your dreams. Here I am at 39 moving to NYC temporarily to pursue a certification in Fashion Design. Am I scared? Absolutely! But if your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough. If you aren’t happy with yesterday start something new today. Your comfort zone will kill you. I encourage you to take a small step everyday toward your dreams. Small steps add up and produce progress. Develop tunnel vision, keep your eyes on the prize and remember you are exactly where you’re supposed to be in this moment.


So as I travel down this new path in my life, I’m leaving my fears behind in pursuit of what I know is mine. I WILL be a successful Fashion Designer! Keep after your dreams my Friends, your breakthrough just might be around the corner.


Thanks for reading!
