uhhhhhhhhh!!!!


All the face in this picture tells me, is: "i don't know about this!?!"....
If I could tell you all the times in my life when I have thought that..."oh no! I don't know about this!?!"...
Like waves crashing on the beach....these kinds of thoughts have crashed into my mind...
how's this going to work?
how am I going to have money to pay rent?
how will this ever work out?
and on and on....

The beauty is...if it were up to me....not a whole lot would happen...if I look at my past...I would be quick to know that....I can't rely on just me...whenever I have taken my eyes off of myself...
and looked to God for my help and guidance...man, doors open up and things take place that I never even imagined!

Sometimes worry...is the worst thing you can do...but you can surrender your cares on someone that cares for you more than you'll ever know!

Remember...
you are more talented than you think, more beautiful than you know, and more loved than you can imagine....kandee


ps. I get to go to make-up airbrush academy today...so excited!!! Can't wait to tell you all about it!!!!! yay!

Hey Kandee, dis is da first time iam writtin' on your blog, i've been readin' it since a month now.. anyway, you kno you're such a wonderful and beautiful and talented person, and so inspiring.. God sent you for us, people to edmire you nd make them happy..! God Bless you missy..! And you're so right about leavin' your worries to God ALmighty..! He is da one who created us, and He is da one to give us happiness and put us through tough times just to test and see how strong our Faith is in Him.. He tests da one He Love's, to see their paitence, and their trust in Him...
So be thankful for whatever life brings you, Happiness brings joy nd facing Sadness brings da strength in you to face it and learn from it, both Happiness and Sadness brings me close to the Almighty...

may God guide us all to da straight path..! Amen.. x

Kandee, this is so true. Thanks for saying it because I am in need of a wakeup call because I keep trying to make the bad things that I know won't work in my life work and I tend to give up. Ugh....thank you So much for writing this. Let go and let God!! Awesome. You are amazing.

Love you Kandee!!

ellie said...

I really enjoy reading your blogs and watching your youtube videos. You seem so full of life and love and joy. I really admire and respect people who have faced challenging times and come out on the other side, not jaded, but transformed into something stronger, more beautiful, wiser.

I am at an interesting crossroad in my life, and I stumbled upon your videos. I have really been touched by your positive attitude and your determination to be who you are, and love who you are. It's good stuff. Thank you for encouraging me (and so many others,) and waking up in me a creativity and an excitement for my life. You, in all your wonderful silliness, are awesome!

Also, quickly. I read about your drive the other day when you walked into the restaurant and the boys were disrespecting you. I was so glad that the girl behind the counter knew you, and was there to lift you up - I thought 'she (Kandee) has angels looking out for her.'

Keep shining woman!

PS. I have never posted comments on a blog before...hope I'm doing this right!!

russianred said...

Thanks Kandee!! You always seem to know just what I need to hear!!!

Miss Homme said...

What I love about you Kandee is that you're so positive and full of love. Never give that up and doors will always open for you. xx

Sandy said...

Hey Kandee...I just recently found your web site. I just love watching your videos. You are sweet and positive and it's so nice to find someone who loves the Lord and will talk about their trust in Him. Thanks for brightening my day!

Candy said...

Good Morning Kandee Girl,
Thank you for that post I really needed to hear that this morning.
Thanks for the reminder I have been keep my eyes on me and not on the Lord. You are such an awesome encouragement. I read your blogs every day. You rock!!!

Much Love

Julie Vang said...

I love your BLOGS!! Yes, I have those thoughts many times as well...and I always leave it to the great Lord above. Like I told my husband; God has always opened up the doors to solutions for us. He's such an amazing GOD!! May he bless you Kandee...and do forget..we ALL LOVE YOU here!!

-julie

vivalabrittany said...

Kandee, you are amazing! I've been looking for inspiration lately because I feel like I'm in a slump. And then there you are one day on YouTube! It just makes my day when I read your kind words and it puts me into a better mood. I thank God for you and wish you the best with everything! You are a truly awesome person. Have a GREAT day! =)

zombiepunk85 said...

Kandee, this is my first time leaving a comment, and I really hope you read this, because I want you to know this post really spoke to me. I'm 24, and just recently told my husband I want a divorce. I'm completely scared and don't know what i'm going to do with my life. I know that i'm supposed to turn it all over to God, but it's so hard to do just that. After reading your post, i just sat there and cried for a good 10 minutes. You truly are an inspiration to all women out there, and your videos and posts always make me feel like i could do anything. I know i should get that feeling from God, but maybe right now, he's using you to talk to me. Keep smiling, Kandee. You brighten everyones day!

AngieC said...

kandee i love your take on life!!! i checked out that girls jewelry page and she has some amazing stuff, i already ordered something!! thanks for the info!

MUAinTheMaking said...

Hi Kandee - I've noticed you unfolding like a flower about your spirituality and opening up more and more to let us know that you love and honor God and that you seek God in your life. I think you are touching so many lives with this and was wondering if you'd be willing to share what your particular faith/religious path is with everyone who is eagerly watching, listening, reading...all hungry for some type of truth, meaning, and hope in their lives. Love you.

Lauren said...

Kandee!! I think you're amazing. So positive...and full of encouragement! You're just a good person. Anyhow, this post is more to show you how much of a footprint you're leaving on the web! I live in Canada and Im trying to get my hands on some un-petroleum jelly, so I went to amazon.com and just take a look for yourself at what customers who buy that product are also purchasing. It's hilarious! You're famous!

haha! Seeing that made me feel in a way like we're all connected. I hope it brings to same feeling to you.

It Can't Rain All The Time said...

Kandee- Thank you so much for taking the time to write on your blog and share the inspirational words you do. I really think you have changed my life! I love watching your videos for make up looks and tips. But more than that, you have changed the way I think about myself and my goals and life again!!! Thank you and have a blessed day!

Angie Mohammed said...

MorganMizell said...

i just want to THANK YOU for making life that much more fun and enjoyable. seriously, ever since i found you on youtube, i look up to you as my role model. my new saying is WWKD? (what would kandee do? lol because watching you always smile and laugh makes me want to be a better person. sometimes when i have to work and i don't feel that great, let alone not wanting to get out of bed to get ready for work (or school), i'll think about a tip or trick you taught me and that will all of a sudden get me excited to do my hair and put my make up on. thank you for being YOU, don't ever change and i can't wait for all your upcoming videos!! xxoo LOVE, Morgan

Fortunate Face said...

CHANTHA B said...

thank you for being the person you are. we need alot more positive and inspiring people like you around. Your videos always make me smile. Its one of those feel good feelings. I Love It! Ok like this might be weird but i was at Forever 21 with my cousin yesterday and we happen to run across a pair of Harem Pants, and it was the exact same one you had on your video and i was like Oh Kandee Johnson has these and my cousin looked at me like who? I was like Kandee Johnson you know from you tube. LOL i said it so casually like i know you personally or something. haha ok sorry i just wanted to share that thought. Alright well hope you have a great day! ANd ill be waiting for more videos n posts. Stay AWESOME! =)

easy said...

kandee we need to get you , our own tv show, like a cooking show, accept not with food , but with makeup and PEP talks! We all love you

coco said...

I've been thinking the same thing. I was hoping that the STYLE network could come up with a show for you. You are so upbeat and knowledgeable about so many things. Being a mom,a makeup artist, stylist etc. you'd be so fun to watch!

OliviaRENEE said...

the quote you wrote is really influential and well put together.

made my day, thank you.

kelbel_316t said...

Dear Kandee,
I am sure you get lots of messages asking about make-up and lots of other things so I understand if you can't get back to me, but if you could give some advice I would be greatly appreciated!! I am a college-student at a community college with an undecided major. I have not a clue what I want to be or do...the only thing I can think of what I love to do is make-up! So I am trying to find out what I could do as a career in make-up. I am thinking of maybe a make-up artist but not sure!! I looked some schools up online but its hard trying to find schools for becoming a make-up artist really if you live in Indiana ha! So if do take time and read this message I would be very thankful and even more thankful if you reply with some advice! I would like to say also that i absolutly LOVE all your videos I am sure you get that tons! and I support in everything you do!! You are an amazing, strong woman!! and you really seem like you are actually a REAL person and I dont think you have a fake/bad bone in your body!!

much love,
Kelley!!

Ana said...

Bruna said...

Love reading your posts!! :)

I was reading a blog of a make-up artist/model and I saw you in there, i don' know if you have already seen this (since is from september 20th - my birthday! yei!) but here it is anyways : http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_BQZo9WPRzMw/SruhkqglsgI/AAAAAAAABdM/hDhIuZZgX8s/s1600-h/O+Globo+lu+1+a.jpg

It's from a brazilian newspaper and it's about videos with women teaching make-up tricks on the internet!

Hugs with love
Bruna

Bruna said...

Ah, and I forgot to say that I can't wait to hear about the make-up airbrush academy!! It sounds so fancy hahahahaha :)

I Blow Kisses said...

I am so encouraged to see how the Lord's love flows out of u in all you do Kandee! Lord I pray more blessings,abundance, and peace over your Kandee girl! Your Amazing and I LOVE YOU!!

PrettyRoyalT said...

Hi Kandee!!!
Thank you for posting this today. I came to my full-time job thinking about how I'm going to get my makeup career off the ground. I completely had no motivation because I kept thinking about how expensive all the products are (which I can't afford right now) and how I don't feel skilled enough to market myself. I just wanted to give up... until I read this post. I had the same exact worries you talked about in the post. Please continue to push us all to follow our dreams with your kind words. You brought me out of my "funk" when you said "Remember...
you are more talented than you think, more beautiful than you know, and more loved than you can imagine..."
BIG Thank you!!!
Tiff

Angela_06ca said...

Kandee,
I truly admire your positive attitude. You are an inspiration to me. You say the right thing at the right time & even though we've never met, I feel like I know you! Thank you for sharing your insecurities, your thoughts, your love, and your faith! Love ya girl!<3

adrose.c. said...

hi kandee!

I've been watching alot of your makeup tutorials and your vlogging. You were actually the first person via cyberworld to get me connected to the blogging world. I was a bit hesitant and shy about voicing my opinions and writing about the happenings in my life but it just dawned on me that it helps, that blogging about certain aspects of my life is a form of therapy, an outlet! so thanks:)

Andra said...

That is so true... Often i needed help also and never thought it will all work out.

This post touched me even more because I actually am in such a situation... I have no idea how things will come in the end.... But sure can hope everything's gonna be alright.

Thank you for all the positive thoughts, I have a nicer day because of you. Every night i come home and read your posts and I feel better, all the bad thoughts go away because you scare them. Thank you !

Francey said...

Kandee, your post reminded me of..."Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your cares on Him because He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:6-7 I pray for you and your little ones, girl!

PassionBeauty said...

thank you for your beautiful words.
i am going through a really tough time right now, i might have terrible news for my parents and my family and as of right now i feel like a failure, i feel like im the biggest let down to my mom and shes the person that i care for the most. your words bring me peace and hope and make life seem worth the pain and sorrow and i was seriously starting to become suicidal. thank you again for your wonderful words.
