the things in life that matter...


(and yes...I had to re-upoad this again..One of the "country" songs got flagged on youtube...so I re-edited it...I like it better this way, anyway! ha ha ha)

Beauty is all around us...and sometimes the most beautiful things, moments...and even people don't get appreciated and celebrated like they should!

I love this: "don't be anxious and troubled about anything about your life, about what you will eat, about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, the body, and clothes."

It is the moments in life...when you feel a flood of joy,happiness, and peace in your heart...like when I saw this huge creamy yellow moon, slowly peeking above the purpley desert...my eyes wanted to slow down time...and my heart felt the beauty...

My life is not anything near perfect....bad things happen...i feel overwhelmed...situations in my life scare me...i cry....i get sad...but one thing I do know is....
them more you dwell on your problems...the more you allow them to rule you and your emotions.
If you have a spiritual life that is filled...peace will dance around your heart, and joy will shine like the rays of the sun into your heart....and it won't make sense to others that don't have it. But you will know that "happy" is something that there because of some circumstance ( i am happy I got a new pair of shoes......that's an example)...joy is when your heart feels happy for no outside reason...it's just there...
If we meditated on spiritual nourishment...instead of meditating on our problems...talking about our problems and letting them rule our thoughts...we would be much better off.

I just had something happen that made me so upset, I was crying, I felt like throwing up...and I had my airbrush class to go to the next day...I could've either thought about the "bad" stuff all day and let it rule and run my day...right into the ground. But instead I thought, "God knows the outcome....I am going to trust in Him, and hand all my worried over to Him", "my problems are going to be there, whether I think about them or not...so I might as well enjoy each little moment...and cast all my cares on God...that's what he's there for....

And when you do this, your heart will be free to enjoy simple pleasures in life...like moonrises and sunsets...seeing a balloon flying through air...smelling beautiful flowers...the list goes on..and on....
today i will look for beauty...and as always...I hope I can film it and share it with you!!!

let's go be beauty hunters....and trouble-forgetters...and in the process, you just might discover the solution to your problem....
typed with love.....kandee

Sarah x said...

Wow that guy was a bit of a pain! I look forward to watching the video when I get home xx

Geeky Mac Boy said...

A lot of musicians who offer royalty free music want links posted to their sites. However, all that guy could've done was send an email making the request. He didn't have to flag you. What a jerk

Good video hun

Kyndal<3 said...

Yea. I agree with Geeky Mac Boy. The guy coulda just emailed you. Owell. It's still a great video.

LOVE YOU KANDEE!

I can't wait to see your new hairstyle!

Dannygirl said...

How long is your drive from LA to home??

WinterBlossom said...

guitarrasara said...

Hi Kandee. I found out earlier this year while writing a paper for a Media class that Youtube has software that automatically detects copyright infringement. The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF.org) has articles on this. So you have to be really careful about that! Sometimes it even detects audio not protected by DMCA- so it is always good to note all resources just in case! They have removed videos of little girls singing popular songs because of that...

Samantha said...

I love the scenery in your vid...and I can't wait to see your new haircut!! Have an awesome week!

Gabi said...

I couldn't watch the original video because it froze every time at about 0:50, but it works now! ^^ You are such a darling! xoxo

Julie said...

Stephanie said...

thank you for sharing your wonderful thoughts about worry and thinking positive. i have a problem with worrying too much and dwelling on all the bad things and forget to ask God for help. since i've started reading your blogs i've been just trying to put those things that worry me out of my mind cuz i know God will take care of me and everything will work out. it doesnt do me any good to worry about it anyway. i thank for helping me remember that God is alway there for us cuz sometimes we forget....
Stephanie ☮&♥

Kala said...

Kandee- I feel like a dork writing on your blog because I've never met you before I just obsessively check your blog and youtube videos. I just wanted to say that I think that cooler than all your make up tips, cooler than all your hair dos, cooler than all your incredible talents, is how you are unafraid to share your faith. It's really amazing to know that there is someone else out there who has made mistakes but is still trying to live with/for God. Is that quote at the top from Luke chapter 12?? I love when God reminds us not to worry. Thank you for this Kandee. I hope your day is blessed.
Love, Kala

Kandee

You are so stinkin' awesome! Your words are uplifting and encouraging. The Reward is Far Greater than the Sacrifice. You are blessed and Destined for Greatness! Thank you for being that daily encouragment. God Bless you!

Andrea Delsandro

Are you able to do a Penelope Cruz Make-up look? Please :-D

katie said...

kandee, you have no idea how much this post helped me. im going through such a hard time right now and this has totally helped me in so many ways. i just want to thank you so very much. you are an angel from god and you are so blessed by all he has given you to share with the world! you are truly beautiful for giving love and encouragement to everyone, thank you
love your biggest fan in the world, katie

Shannon said...

oh Kandee maybe you be blessed a million times over for all the blessings you give others! my heart is always so warmed when i read your posts--sometimes i even go get my sister and show her or tell her all about your day haha :) i just love you! and will be praying for you! Mercy, peace, and love be yours in abundance, Kandee! (Jude 1:2)

brandi72 said...

Thanks Kandee, I really needed to hear what you had to say today. I need to lose 10 lbs that I have been fighting with since my last baby, and it has been an uphill battle. You are totally right. God can heal me and help me love myself and the little things. Thanks for the reminder.

wildhope said...

hey kandee...I´m not sure If you´ll understand what I´m saying but...If you´ve ever felt like literally crying out of the love you have for someone...of just thinkiing about how much you cherish them...but if you have then I hope you know that you really are loved and that every post you have well...posted haha..really does turn people´s lives around...the essence of your genuine care and concern for us simply leaps out of our computer desktops...I hope our love leaps out to yours too...you mean so much to all of the girls that need some soul-healing from time to time...huge love..

MissMai said...

Kandee, I love reading your blogs! They are very inspiring:) I hope you don't mind me quoting your inspirations and sharing it with others. You are a true inspiration effect that ripples and touches others. I'm keeping your quote of leaving all my worries to God. Thank you for reminding me of what simple pleasures in life like that moonrise.

thestarlightwriter4u.wordpress.com said...

Great post Kandee! I wrote about something similar today myself. Life is too short to dwell on things that make you feel bad but at the same time, a good cry can be very healing sometimes. :)

Kitsune said...

Thank you.

The section about anxieties and worries consuming every thought is how I live my life every day. I always tell myself not to let these types of thought and worries consume me because all it does it feed on itself and I make myself ill, but I can never manage to stop doing it. Your words are very encouraging, and your ability to let go of those anxieties amazes me... one day, I hope to be able to do that, too.

MUAinTheMaking said...

Kandee, I believe these posts of yours are sprinkling little drops of hope onto people and we are beginning to blossom in the sunshine. If that makes any sense at all. LOL. No really, you are getting us to think and want to seek something greater than what we are and what we know. I am finding it all very powerful. Thank you, and much love.<3

TeamMcDonough said...

Beautiful post!

Colleen said...

Amazing thoughts, amazing moments.
we get so busy that we forget to smell the roses esp. these days.
but you helped to slow down our 'busy-ness' to take a step back and see the beauty that surrounds us.
I love that you are so vivacious and full of life. I can sense that you are grounded by the creator of the universe. He has only good plans for you, plans to bless you.
Thank you for sharing His beauty thought you. YOu are a blessing.. you have no idea...

You are so right Kandee! That is my favorite verse because I have trouble, like alot of people, with worrying and getting upset about things I can not control. You are such an inspiration to me, and now to my friends I have shared you with! You are inspiring us to be more positive and to appreciate life to the fullest. Luvvv you!

Rachelle said...

Hi sweetie,

Beautiful note... if you ever have any questions about God, Christianity, Catholicism, message me, I would love to help you deepen that wonderful relationship with God! I just recently became a Catholic and it has made my life so peaceful and joyful :) I know I sound crazy and like a Jehova's Witness, but I'm not and I really would love to share what I do know, books I've read, people I admire.

xoxo God bless,

Rachel

Lovely Leah said...

you are beautiful.
I read everything you wrote from start to finish! I watched all your youtube videos, and thought you are one of the most inspiring people i have ever seen. it was like i could see you gain more wisdom, more joy and become the woman you are today with every new blog about you, that you post.
I know you get compliments out of the wazoo, but i want you to know that you really should take them to heart, because you are a very special soul. Its funny, your cute sillyness reminds me of me! too bad i didn't live closer! anyways, don't stop what you are doing! you are amazing! and maybe when i become a successful singer, you could be my personal makeup artist lol!
Take care kandee
Leah

Hi Kandee,
I LOVE your blog! I just came across it and am very interested in your school recommendations. I have currently been freelancing, but am looking to attend school in Phoenix Arizona area and was wondering if you have heard anything about Maxima Academy? Also, do you know what genre of the industry would be more methodical or precision work(aka not to rushed)? I had brain surgery and am looking for something that is not too too hectic ya know? lol ;) thanks for all of your help. You are a true inspiration and I cant believe we share so many similar interests!

Chubbi said...

Hi! I found your blog through Youtube by chance. And felt my heart was hugged when i read your recent blogs - thankyou! :) Since i started drawing my characters (i call them 'Chubbi's), I've had a dream to bring happiness and hope to people through them. And you are the first person i've come across with similar hopes! I would love if you checked out my blog sometime :) Love what you are doing, Chubbi.
