Minding My Business and Trusting God – My Journey to *Finally* Starting Esthetician School

Me on my first day of esthetician school

When I first started blogging is when I truly started learning about skincare. After I fully immersed myself in glam makeup, I learned about how a good esthetician can merge the two worlds. (Mainly because I wanted my makeup to look betterSorry not sorry.)


I became fascinated with the career. The idea of helping people achieve their makeup and skincare goals seemed like the best job in the world. I immediately added it to my to-do list – and left it there for 3 years.


I told my family and friends that this is something that I wanted to do and for the past 3 years there was always something that stopped me. The excuses ran a mile long. I didn’t have the money or I didn’t have a job that would allow me to go to school or one of the billion other reasons I told myself that this wasn’t the right time to chase my dreams. So going to school remained on my to-do list. 


Last month, out of nowhere, God put it on my heart to just look into what starting school meant. I asked God “what am I even going to do after school with this? What would be next?” He responded with “that’s none of your business. Do you trust me or not?”

I stepped out on faith and decided that I was going to finish my program before our wedding. I had no idea how the timing was going to work out with the wedding planning, how I would manage the work with the intense new job that I recently started, or even how I was going to pay for it. However, God told me I was going back now and I was going to remain obedient.

I soon realized that the only person stopping myself from having everything I want is me. I’m learning to become okay with not knowing all the answers and to operate in faith and not fear.

I started school two weeks ago and I feel more aligned than ever. As promised, everything is working out for my good.
