Destiny and Fate

I am one of those crazies who believe in destiny, fate and karma.  I don't believe in coincidences or that things just happen. Take for instance the path we are all on. Sometimes you feel like your not centered. We all feel like this sometimes. I've been reading the Celestine Prophecy again, and this book has alot about this subject, but I have always been into that type of stuff, but regardless of me reading this book, I take notice of my environment and how things pan out. Check out that book for a good good read!

Do you ever feel like you are meant to do something else with your life or be someone else? I have felt like this for years when I was in the military or working as a contractor, or some other job, I always felt like I was wasting my talent of being an artist. Do you ever feel that way?

I felt that way up until about 2 years ago, when I moved back to Virginia from Colorado. I stopped making excuses as to why I couldnt go back to school, or why I couldnt do something I loved. I immediately went back to school, switched majors and ended up in beauty school instead, something I really wasnt interested in doing. That turned out to be the best thing  I ever did, because it led me to bigger things. I'm not completely where I want to be, but I am moving towards it. Every thing that happens, every person you meet, is just one step closer to where you are supposed to be.

Whatever youre dealing with, or you feel like you are not on the right path, I want to tell you that youre not alone in feeling this way. Dont wait for things to change-be the change! I wanted to share some inspirational quotes I found of course via Pintrest. I am a strong believer of taking charge of your own destiny and going for your dreams.

So, what are you waiting for?

Pick Me Up

With the New Year creeping up fast, many of us feel more energized. We all set goals or resolutions, and usually were motivated to do different things like lose weight, go to the gym, eat better, watch our spending, or trying something new everyday.

Not everyone feels this way when the time comes to ring in another year. Sometimes, we feel out of place, lost or we feel nothing. Completely unmotivated. We need a PICK ME UP every once in a while to remember what it is that we are working towards.
As an artist, I sure do have my days where I just dont know what I am doing with myself. I dont want to do anything, and I try to talk myself out of doing things, or I make excuses as to why I dont want to start something.

We all need reminding of what it is we are working towards. Its easy to get down, or depressed when things arent what we want them to be. We see our peers, family and friends doing things and we feel that slight ting of jealousy although were happy for them, we get pulled into a funk.

I just wanted to remind you  to just chill. If youre feeling overwhelmed, lost or unmotivated, maybe you need a break. Take some time to just refocus, and find some inspiration. Take a small day trip somewhere, read a magazine you normally wouldnt, log in to PINTREST hahaha.or call a friend to talk it out- youll feel better getting it all out! When your ready to move to the next step, you ll know when that time is.

Dont ever compare yourself to what other people are doing in their lives. You will never move forward in your path if your focusing on what other people are doing. Make a dream board, where you cut out images of your goals, your hopes and dreams and post it where you will see if daily. If you goal is to one day own a salon, or a boutique, having images of your dream goal helps to give that reminder to keep going.

Even though your goals may seem too far away, everyday offers a new experience that you take with you on your journey. Focus on what you need to do and as each day passes, it turns into weeks, months and then all of a sudden, youre at that moment in your life when things are going your way.

We all have our days. If you ever need a pick me up, you can come here :) For a smile and an online hug!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed your stay!

This is for you Jinaki! I love you

Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.

Surrender to Your Inner Artist

Megan Massacre

I am sitting down, relaxing and last week I recorded on my DVR, NY INK and am finally getting around to watching it. I have been playing with the idea of wanting to do a tattoo apprenticeship after I get my cosmetology license.  This show is definetly inspiring me to get on my game and start drawing more. If I want to do this, I gotta go after it.

I love seeing female tattoo artists and when I saw Megan Massacre on NY Ink, I fell in love! I love seeing women take charge and have complete confidence in themselves in their art and their craft. I learned that she does her own makeup as well on some of her photoshoots.

I love this photo!
This has inspired me to want to work on my craft, my art skills, my image and my life. To other people, when they see these images, all they see is a model, to me I see my future, doing makeup, styling hair, possibly doing tattoos, painting, designing my own clothing line and much more.

I cant wait to start doing my own photoshoots!

Posing with my new Bracelet Cuff: a jeweled heart with wings that he got for me from his visist to San Antonio, Texas. I love it!

Here is a pic of me browsing around in HOT TOPIC today, right before my hubby and I saw Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Part 2 (my second time already seeing it, but we saw it IMAX in 3D, which is an awesome experience)

I hope this inspires you to work on your craft and skills!

Quote of the day:

Go ahead and release your fears.
Releasing our fears is grabbing hold to our future. Many times what people fear most is the inevitable, change. Sometimes in order to fly we have to let go of the dead weight which are sometimes our own fears holding us down to the ground. Fear can lead to unwanted challenges, both physical and emotional in a life that is already filled with enough difficulty. Fears can severely hinder you from living your life to the fullest extent.

In order to overcome your fears there are many ways in which to do so, whether it be with praying or meditation, confronting them directly, or seeking professional help, we must do what we have to in order to get past our fears so that we may be able to live our lives without them. Whatever strategy that you choose to use to overcome your fears, do so with determination and faith, so that you may be able to live your life to the fullest, the way that life is meant to live."

Sweet Surrender Art. Beauty. Fashion.

Cheers to the New Year! 2011

Happy New Year!!!!! 2011

Happy New Year to everyone! I hope everyone had a safe and fun holiday! New Year's was fun for Jermie and I, this was our first New Years actually doing something. Last year, we didnt go out, so this year we went out to a friend's house for a small get together. We wanted to go dancing at a club, but the cover charges are ridiculous!!! or the new slang i keep, hahahaha weird. I didnt drink on New Years..although I wish I could say the same about check out his drunken stare in this picture! hehehehehehe

Right after we kissed at midnight! lol

For some reason, I have been into doing blue eyeshadow so, of course I dressed in blue and black. We had fun hanging out with old friends but as soon as it was midnight, we were ready to go. hahahaha. Thankfully we dont live far from where we were at.

Reading up on all the blogs I follow...and videos on youtube that I watch, everyone is posting about their New Year's Resolution. I cant remember if I have already mentioned it, but my New Year's Resolution is to save money, because Jermie and I want to buy a house, or a townhouse. I can never have just one another resolution is to continue doing good in college and to complete my training at the Rudy & Kelly Paul Mitchell Cosmetology School. I should be finished with the program by November. I am so excited because once I am completed with that, I will be able to start actually making a name for myself as a stylist and make up artist and start doing things that I love, such as painting, art, fashion, style, cooking, sewing, make up and so much more.

can barely see it, but my eye shadow is a purty blue!

My last resolution is that I want to make videos on youtube and make my blog more public. A part of me is nervous to do that, mainly because I am terrified that no one will watch or read it, or that they will find me incredibly boring....but I think it will be fun to post videos on sewing and make up and hair tricks....Who knows? So, I want to start that too. We will see. My schedule is gonna be busy enough going to two schools, and being a mom and a wife and whew....but I can handle it!


With hope and dreams of the future, Ce Cilia Marie
