Growing up I wanted to be a dancer and I was till I was 20. Sadly I gave it all up thinking it was the right decision which now I know it wasn't. I have always felt like there is a little piece of my life missing somewhere. When I see my friends staring in the west end and in films and travelling the world, it really guts me to think that I am missing out on that. I always knew from a young age that no matter what I ended up doing with my life, I wanted to be the best I could. I guess that's my competitive streak shining through!
Over the past 3 years I have worked within a mega fast paced environment and to be honest my strengths shine through when I'm under pressure. Even though I enjoy my job and I have worked hard to get where I am, it doesn't feel like its the career I was meant to pursue. I know there is something I am passionate about out there.
Second on my list of 'what I want to be when I grow up' was something backstage within the arts and fashion. Hair and beauty. I have always said that if i ever won the lottery I would have a chain of salons over London! One day I aim to have a salon of my own! I have been looking into courses for the last 6 months or so and now it has finally come to enrolment time!
Today I toddled off to one of my local colleges to enrol in some evening classes to pursue the dream! I will be studying make up to start with and then onto skin care and hair. I am so excited and I feel like I can really put myself on track to do something I love. I will keep you up to date and share an 'inside tips' (as if we don't know them already) that I learn along the way. I have learnt soooo much already by watching youtube videos and reading blogs that I am hoping that will put me one step ahead.
It feels weird going back to school as I left so long ago, but I am excited, more than I have been in a very long time!
If any of you are missing that one little thing, go for it! You don't want to look back and think 'what if'.
