So its a Friday night, I’m sitting in bed, binge-watching Gossip Girl and had the thought I haven’t sat down and written a blog post in far too long. So I decided to just give you all a little life update. Some times I get nervous about sharing almost every aspect of my life but at the same time, I know so many people go through similar situations and don’t talk about it. My goal is to always inspire people and I want everyone to live their best possible life. So here we go. *disclaimer I’m not sharing names of places, people or things in this because I have no hard feeling against anyone I just want to share my journey and whats happened.
If you read this post you know that last year I dropped out of college to go into cosmetology school. I’m coming up on my graduation in just a few short weeks and I could not be more excited. I was so nervous to even start and had no idea how I would do but now I can confidently say I love what I’m doing. Just a few days after I started cosmetology school, I started a new job at a salon I loved, loved working at and loved all of my coworkers. Unfortunately, I was fired two weeks before Christmas. I was completely blindsided and torn apart(I know this sounds dramatic but I truly thought I’d be at this salon for the rest of my life). I didn’t think I would finish school because I didn’t want to work at any other salon. For a few weeks, sadness and anger consumed me all the time. Even just thinking back on it I still have some of these emotions come up and honestly I don’t think they’ll ever fully go away. This was the first time I’ve ever been fired from a job and I know it happens to many people and many people in worse situations but I never knew how bad it would hurt me.
Fast forward a few weeks, I waited till after the holidays to start job searching so I could have the least amount of stress possible during this time. I found a salon that I adored, went for an interview and thought it went great, I was talked to like I already had the job so I didn’t really look further than this place. The process of applying, interviewing and emailing back and forth took almost a month so when I was told I didn’t get the job I was very frustrated. At this point, I decided to email as many salons as I could that I thought I would like. ONE salon replied saying they weren’t looking for an assistant at the time but I could come in and shadow the stylist and just watch and learn. I decided to go because I always want to further my knowledge and thought it would be a good opportunity to meet more stylists.
I went to this salon a few times just to watch and then one day got a text from the owner saying one of the assistants working there was leaving and they needed someone almost immediately. SO here I am three weeks into my new job and I am LOVING it. I honestly didn’t think I would ever find another salon that I loved and doubted myself a lot in the few months of being unemployed. I truly think I am where I’m meant to be, I’ve learned more in the last few weeks than I have in the last year. I’m so excited to grow in this salon with these coworkers.
I know this is only one part of my hectic life but it has taken over the last few months so I wanted to share what’s been going on. I 100% could not have done this without my family and especially my boyfriend. They have been my rock for the past few months and I don’t know where I’d be without them.
If you want to see more of my everyday life make sure to follow me on Instagram. And if you’ve recently been fired or are job searching, don’t give up. I truly believe everything happens for a reason and it will all fall in place eventually, you just have to be patient.
