Hello. I hope my heart on staying grounded helped give perspective to how important knowing who you are and staying in community is to your ability to thrive in this life and not just survive. I wanted to finish my experience of what it takes to stay grounded and how I continue to walk it out everyday.
Working in the beauty industry can be insanely exciting yet very depressing at times. So much you can compare yourself to and strive to be. And that brings me to my next big value for staying grounded.
Know your why.
What makes you passionate about what you do? Are you passionate about what you do? If not, how can you work toward that?
Mine sort of happened organically for me. I was raised by a single mom who was very creative and worked in makeup and creative industries so I cultivated a love for the industry. Not everyone has that, I totally get that. But don’t let yourself be stuck in a 9-5 and say, “someday I’ll open that shop, someday I’ll start my ______ ” (insert your dream there)
Start writing down small attainable goals and make it happen! You can do it!
By no means have I arrived! I have a LONG way to go with Marin Makeup and my other passions, it’s journey and everyday I have to remind myself to stay content and not look to far ahead. And that brings me to my last value.
Enough the little things.
Easier said than done right? I used to laugh, and well to be honest still do sometimes, when people told me that. Lately I’ve come find that there is beauty in humble beginnings and to not let the little foxes spoil the vine. There is beauty in chaos. It’s learning to find peace in midst of a storm that will carry you through this lifetime. Stay grounded and love who you are and who you were created to be! Never settle for second best and never let anyone tell you who you are and what you should do. Seek inside your heart and follow your spirit and you will never be lead astray!
Blessings to you all!
