Surprise: I am a teacher!
I have been trying to be the best teacher I can be, and makeup artist. Today I failed.
You don't need to know the details of my failure, but Taber encouraged me to share my secret- I have another job and I can't be the perfect business owner anymore. He said I have "too much on my plate". Sometimes when I feel overwhelmed and confused about how to solve a problem, I just decide to be 100% honest here it goes!
My uncle says stress is when expectation and reality don't match up. True that.
Reality: I'm not taking many clients during the school year, but I will continue to take brides and summer clients. I can't reply to emails within the hour like I used to, or have a flexible schedule from Sept-June. I have to say 'no' more during the school year. I will continue to share my love of makeup because that has not changed.
Thanks for sticking with me all these years. Sorry if I haven't been as great of an artist as I used to be, I wish I could be perfect at everything... but I'm letting PERFECTION go (somehow... a hybrid of yoga/positive self talk/Maverick cuddles/BFF phone chats/being honest are in order).
Big love- from my little makeup and teaching loving heart,
B. Ed with a minor is Social Studies (lol) and makeup artist
