majestic mornings.....

this was the view from the
Motel 6 in Mammoth.....the first morning of the new year....
I walked outside to go buy a Vitamin water....and the beauty of the mountains stole my breath away...all around...are the most beautiful, more-than-your-eyes can take in....mountains. The tallest mountain in the contiguous United States is in this mountain range, Mt. Whitney.

Sometimes it may seem like we have the tallest mountains of difficulty in our lives. We may look our lives and say, oh this is too big to ever overcome...this pain is too much, the frustration is too overwhelming.

Instead we need to develop our wings...wings like eagles. They make nest in the highest, most dangerous locations. Instead of running and hiding like a chicken would when they see danger...eagles just fly higher! That's what we need to do. When we see things in life getting more difficult....instead of shrinking down and hiding, and saying "oh well, it's too much, I'll never be able to do that...I'll never be able to be happy"......We need to fly even higher....go even farther...we truly can "fly" above our problems......
No one said we need to just sit and take whatever problems or hurts, we have in our paths! We need to just decide that we are going to have wings like eagles....and fly above them!

When you're feeling hurt or sad...or discouraged....that's the time we need to put our "eagle wings" on and soar beyond the hurt and the sadness. God even says when we "fly" with him, it's like we are soaring high with wings like eagles!

So let's soar high above all of life's troubles this year with wings like eagles!!!

huge love....your fellow eagle flyer...kandee

Oh Kandee that is so inspiring and I love you even more for being a Christian. You have definitely have overcome a lot and showed that nothing can bring you down from your dreams. Now I have overcome a lot and I am so tired of yesterdays woes and I am ready to do more than just stand up for myself... I'm ready to fly!!

Kandee, I just want you to know that whenever I'm sad and feel like giving up, I read your blog or watch one of you're videos, and you inspire me to push back and keep trying, because no one can make my lifebetter except for me. You have such a gift, and that gift isn't just in makeup, but in inspiring people and making them feel happy. Thank you so much for sharing that gift with all of us.

In fact you've inspired me so much, I'd love for you to consider speaking at my high school graduation in June, and you can help even more people.

Kandee you're MAGIC I swear! You have no idea how you have helped me these past few months. There is something inside of you that is incredible. You are one of the most inspiring people I have ever seen. You have rays of light that shine wherever you go. Rays that are ever so rare in this world now days. I don't think I could ever thank you enough for all you have taught me and others. You teach beauty from the inside out. You yourself are the most beautiful... from the inside out. Thank you Kandee. You were meant to do what you do. Truly a blessing to all. Thank you.

Great post Kandee! Just when I was sitting here dreading tomorrow morning, your words have helped me not feel so nervous and stressed out.

The written word has always been way more inspiring than any lecture I've ever heard.

Have you thought of writing a book along the same lines as this blog? Maybe include pictures with each page and instead of chapters, make them more segments of inspiring scenarios based on your life.....I dunno, just some ideas I thought I'd flow your way haha!

You are a SUNBEAM!!!
I am so glad I stumbled across your videos and your blog, because God is definitely using you in my life - from just brightening my day because you're so dang CUTE and SWEET, to inspiring me not to give up on my dreams (to do SOMETHING on film sets... I think :-p).

I hope you know how amazing you are, and how much God is TOTALLY using you for so many people!!

Love,
Leah
