My journey to complete Cosmetology School

Hair Story

It's funny how life takes unexpected turns. Sometimes those instances could seem like it's for the worst, but often times, God shifts our lives for the better, because maybe if he doesn't shift it for us, we will not make the decision for ourselves. I took a lay off from my job at a Psychiatric hospital on May 11, 2014. I had just moved into a townhouse with my husband and 3 children. What was I to do? I had been contemplating going back to cosmetology school, I went 12 years ago , dropped out after 5 months, and now at almost 30 years old , wanting to go again to pursue my dream. I have always wanted to do hair, own a Salon and even invent my own beauty product line. I never dreamed of being anything else, even at 10 years old , Madame CJ Walker being my inspiration, I aspired to be a Hair Stylist. Life decisions altered my dreams. I had 2 children at the young ages of 17 and 21. Married at 24 only to have another baby at 25. So my life went towards a career that could help provide for my family, nursing seemed more suitable. Only thing is , I was so unhappy. I had a great husband, and wonderful children, but my career life was not what I wanted. I still felt butterflies at the thought of owning my own hair salon. So once I was laid off from work, I asked my husband's blessing on me going to get my cosmetology license. He told me as long as I promised to give it my all and go full force then he would back me up 100%. I prayed and asked God for guidance and wisdom, and if this was his will for my life then i needed him to make this process smooth. And so I did it! Went to Empire Beauty School to register for the class that would take me 8-9 months to complete. And once I started it seemed like everything that could go wrong financially with my husband and I was starting to go wrong. Why is it that once you go after your dreams that every obstacle that could be placed in your way finds a way to try and push you off course? But I was determined to stay in school, never missing a day for 4 months straight, I had 100% attendance and a 99% GPA. But still , I was getting tested in my faith big time. But where there is a will there is a way. God made sure our every need has been met. We have had some major set backs, but I have so many great things waiting for me to complete this course, that it's all becoming worth the fight to finish. I won't be broken, the way my faith is set up, I can't be broken. I have come too far to quit. And now on this day, January 19th 2015, I have 15 weeks left to finish and I will be taking my state boards to be licensed. I'll even be going to The Bronner Bros hair show in Atlanta in February. You see, our greatest tests come when we have to be totally dependent upon God to guide our lives. This may not seem like much to someone else, but for me to actually be almost done completing a goal that I set for myself at 10 years old, this means the world to me. I'm at the right place at the right time, chasing the right dream to become the perfect Hair Stylist . And to make it even more praise worthy, I was laid off on May 11, 2014, but my graduation date from Empire Beauty School is May 11, 2015. What a difference a year can make !!!!!!! As I continue my journey I'll be posting about various hair styling techniques that I am learning. Can't wait to keep you guys posted on my progress!!!!! Thank you for reading my story........ Hair is my life !!!!!!!
