First post of the new year! This post has nothing to do on the topic of hair and makeup and just wanted to share my feelings for Day 1 of 2019.
Feeling excited about what 2019 can bring for me. I just turned 29 last year (1 month back in December), but I don't even feel 29. I feel like I'm 25. Usually I would be fretting about what have I achieved for the past year and setting new goals like a frantic maniac for the next year.
In a general sense for 2019, I would like to achieve more where things that are intangible are concerned. Reflecting on my past, I have placed more emphasized on the tangible. That made me feel stressed and it allowed me to feel inadequate. This year - I would like to be more focused on relationships - with anyone I connect. Be it with family, friends, my boyfriend, my clients, business partners, etc. I hope that I can make a difference in how I interact with others.
When I think about makeup and hair, I think about how I make meaning out of my contributions to the society. For me, it gives me a lot of satisfaction. I get to understand about someone's needs/ wants, I learn more about people while interacting with them and find out things I didn't know about the world or about themselves. I persuade others to see my point of view in terms of what styles looks good on them, and also respect my client's taste and vision on how they like to look like. It is not simply a makeover session for me. It gives me great joy that I have an opportunity to understand people and if my makeovers are appreciated I feel immense joy. It is super fun, it allows me to use my creative understanding of colours, and styling techniques to create unique looks. It brings me joy that clients are amazed which is extremely rewarding. <3
Therefore, my new year's resolution is to improve in the ways I interact in 2019. If you have read up to here, thank you for reading. Wishing you a Happy 2019!
