Hold Fast

Through the years, with everything I have gone through I have changed as does everyone with time. With every experience, I have grown into the person I am meant to be.

I have made many mistakes and I'm not perfect, I have never claimed to be.
I have become more confident, more motivated and sure of my life. I used to not know who I was, I was lost, even into my early 20's, just a wanderer.

Ive realized that being a mother, and helping your children grow into the person they are meant to be is completly backwards. My children have molded ME into who I am meant to be.

Not only my kids have molded me, but so have my friends and of course my family. I strongly believe in "You are who you surround yourself with" I try to surround myself with others who are positive, motivated, strong, open, outgoing. I am thankful for everyone in my life. 

The way I look, with bright colored hair, and a half shaved head, colored eyebrows, and vibrant makeup and a growing collections of tattoos, how I dress, what I buy-everything about me- is all apart of who I am. To me, this is not a fad, a phase, or me trying to fit in. I am a confident, independent woman, who is not afraid to live life.

I was inspired to write this because I believe that we shouldnt have to compromise who we are or what we look like for anything. Yesterday, I had my interview at Sportsclips. It went well as far as me cutting the hair on the mannequin. I dressed professionally and of course maintained myself. I dont want to nitpick all the wrong things I saw about the interviewer, but to sum it all up, she told me that they couldnt allow tattoos, and that my hair would have to be a "Natural" color. I politely thanked her for her time and left.
As I am searching for another job in a salon, I am feeling out what is right and where I fit in. I def feel that Sportsclips was not a good fit for who I am. But I know I will find the right place, somewhere I fit in. It will take hard work and sacrifice, but I will not sacrifice who I am for anyone or any job.

I want  to share some inspirational things I found on Pintrest of course and a few from the internet. Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by! I have another interview today for Coucoon Salon! Wish me luck!

XOXO, Cecilia Marie
