made me cry...

sometimes in life we are able to feel that "boomerang love", where you get to feel the love come back to you that you've poured out....
and it is my honor to be able to encourage, love, and inspire you...
I feel so blessed that I am able to be like a little addition of love to your lives, and to be able to encourage hearts and dreams...that means the world to me! I know a lot of people don't have family or friends, even, that encourage them, support them, or even tell them that they love them!
I want you to know, that you have now been adopted into the what I call, our "kandee family"...I want you all to know how much I love you and want you to feel like you can do anything, be anything, and feel more confident, loved, and free to be who you want to be!
It doesn't matter what has happened in your life, what or who, you've lost. Sometimes, if you've lost a love one...you can take that love  you have for them, and go after all your dreams and hopes, with them as your "heavenly encouragement". Take that love for them, and let it help me your confidence, when you feel you can't do it anymore...do it for them!
God has special blessing waiting for us in life...it's time you step out in faith to get them! It's time, it's your time to shine! No matter where you are, what you are doing, what you're dealing with in life...
your dreams are waiting, your happiness is waiting, the love of your life is out there waiting....
time to say, "You know what!?! I'm going to be happy today, no MATTER WHAT happens! I'm going to live the life I want!"
I'm behind you, your whole "kandee family" is behind you! I promise you, we are all the most encouraging bunch, group, family...and I love each and every one of you that makes up our "precious lil' family".....
this blog post from Michelle, touched my heart so much, it made tears fall from my eyes....thank you Michelle....! READ MICHELLE's POST HERE (click on this text)
And to Hannah, who lost her father, but gained a little baby...and you're 17....I was 18 when I had my Jordan, but he was my happiness, he was my reason to live...many times his little smile is what got me through the day! If your life feels crazy and overwhelming...don't worry ....stop and think about that precious little person...I will do a post about me being a young mom next! (just for you love!)
MISSION OF THE DAY:
*no matter what seems to go wrong...find something good about it
(EX: your car won't start...maybe you would've been in an accident, you broke up with someone...well now you are free to find the person that wouldn't dare let you go! I promise your true love is celebrating that you broke up with the one that hurt you, now they can find you!)
*go through a magazine and cut out images of how you want your life and make a "dream poster", pictures of how you want to dress, the kind of house you want, car, pictures of animals or kids you want, the way you want your hair even...it's  your dream wall!
I love each and every one of you, and your precious eyes and hearts that are taking this in!
have them most awesome day today...let's make some dreams start happening!
xoxo kandee

kandee,
I am right at this moment in transition... a woman in transition!!! I am leaving a relationship that has been a place of pain for awhile ...no connection...I am leaving with my little boy to start our new life.. I want to show him what happy looks like...

Chelsea said...

You're so encouraging Kandee! Watching you yesterday on blogtv was so adorable and surreal. You're definitely the person I look up to, and that inspires me.
you and your boyfriend are so adorably cute together :) i'm happy for you Kandee!
I'm going to make that dream poster you mentioned, and then I'm going to frame it and put it on my 'accomplishments' wall! It's the little things you say that bring hope to everyone. You help remind us that there is more out there then the negative thoughts we think when were down, we find the brighter side through you :)

Bbeautyfull said...

Kandee, you never fail to make me smile, your amazing! my life isnt great at the minute but you give me stregth and courage, i will always come to your blog when im feeling down, you help so many people out there and make them smile, i admire you so much for that, you inspire me to make the most out of my life, i love you kandee! xx

mdlc5 said...

hey kandee
I think the majority of your fans, including myself, are in fact your fans because we can all relate to you in some way with our struggles. I lost my dad and am a single mom and my escape when I have one second is watching your videos.
Thank you and thanks to everyone else for always sharing. Reading your blogs makes me not feel so alone.

meghan said...

Hey Kandee, I admit that I don't comment on here often because you often leave me with no words to say. But I do check here excited multiple times a day just hoping you've posted something! And last night I watched you and Bobby on blogtv and it made me cry because you are SUCH (you don't even know) an incredible person and to see you so happy with someone (just like you truly deserve) was so heartwarming to me. I hope he makes all of yours and your little (and not so little ha ha) ones dreams come true! XOXO- Meghan

Hello*Pretty said...

abbie.spicer said...

Marly said...

This was the perfect way to begin my day. You are truly the best! Have an awesome day Kandee(:

Yougethepicture said...

Not only was this encouraging and inspiring, but it is more-so bc now I know there are really people like this in life, in our world, in our country, and closer to us than we know. Thank you so so much. ( the word verification on my comment post is: sinceri).....I like that. This is what I feel about your blog as well as Michelle's, and how I feel in regards to the both of you and people like you. Sincerely thankful and incredibly happy. Thank you again.

Erica Rose said...

Amen, girlie! I needed that little bit of encouragement for today.

Last night I read an entire message board about you. I don't know why, it was a waste of time, but I was curious to see why some people have made you such a big deal in a negative way. I just came to the conclusion that it's too small of a town. I didn't realize some people who live there would put so much energy into something that doesn't involve them.

Anyway, I give you props for getting through all of this knowing the things people are saying. I love how you still find time to encourage others. God bless you and your momma! I love the videos you've done with her lately. SOOO much love sent back your way too, Kandee! You are beautiful inside and out!

Love, Erica

LouLou said...

That is awesome! I follow you on facebook, youtube, and now your blog and I feel blessed to see how amazing you are... how you devote your life to what you enjoy and help others find what makes them beautiful inside and out. There is a movement about being happy with yourself, called "No Makeup Day Protest; You are Beautiful" that is tomorrow. It isn't about protesting makeup, rather protesting the idea that you need to hide yourself by using makeup in order to feel beautiful. In other words, makeup should enhance your natural beauty, not hide it. Please support this movement because its a simple and amazing way to let others know that beauty is something inside and out, which I know you support through seeing your videos and reading your blogs. Good luck at Glaminars! :D

Michelle said...

vs said...

kandee, the love that you bring to the world multiplies itself. the kandee family: a whole greater than the sum of its parts!!!

perhaps you could do a post with Wait Till You See My Smile by alicia keys? great song. beautiful lyrics like this:
Sometimes in life, you don't see straight
Pray to Him, He will show
When your head is in a certain place
Nobody around to make you see
Stand strong and you will grow

Thanks for the post Kandee!

I've been unhappy most of my life. I still am. But God has blessed me with the best boyfriend ever to get me through these times. Because of you, I know that things can only get better and I can have the life I want. I just have to plan and build it.

Thanks so much for the inspiration and encouragement. It's an honour being part of your Kandee family.

Wow, Kandee, thank you so much for this blog. It really brings hope and joy to my day. And its not only this blog, every single one of your videos has brought an incredibly powerful emotion to me and has given me so much positive energy that only one other person can give me (that, being, the person, I am in love with). And even though he is not here right now, you make me feel like I can achieve anything and that his love, no matter how far away it may seem now, might, just might be mine one day. And just that little thought of hope means the world to me. Thank you, Kandee, you are such an inspiration!

narrylikes said...

"When you feel you can't do it anymore...do it for them!" That sentence might have just changed my mindset completely. Thank you xo

hadas said...

Kandee! I want to thank you for all your sweet words!!! You always bring a smile to my face!!!

Shaheen Shine said...

Uh I don`t know If you`ll actually read this Kandee but here it goes:

Kandee, thanks. I feel like my life isn't moving in the pace i want it to be!!! I want my "dream life" to be my "real life" NOW!!! I remember what you said about how we all want our lives to happen faster the way we want them to be. I totally get that. But sometimes i just want to stop the madness and craziness around me and just step out of it into my "dream life". like you said: ..."But if my heart would've just rested in peaceful, happy patience...knowing that God longs to give us the desires of our hearts..and he knows what they are...he put them in us!" I totally agree my DR. called back 5 days ago after I`d been waiting for 3 weeks. and when she finally called i had such a happy feeling in my stomach. because I`d finally know what i`d be allergic to!!! I felt like I probably had to have gone through all the pain and sadness just to get to that light of hope. Maybe that`s God's way of making us appreciate our desires and his blessings. and it was amazing to know that others have had my problems to. It makes me feel like I`m not alone, that theirs others out there dealing with what I`M DEALING WITH NOW AND THAT`S THERE'S STILL HOPE AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL EVEN IF IT DOESN'T ALWAYS LOOK LIKE IT. i know that my hormonal imbalance will be gone! Because of it I've been very self-conscious and had low self-esteem because of the side effects (facial hair) and I get really embarrassed to just go out because I think someone might judge me. I even want to have a summer job at American Eagle this summer to earn some extra cash I'm 16 and have my own lip balm business this summer.so the extra cash would help out my business.

But because I just read your blog right now I`m tired of feeling self-conscious and having low self esteem!!! I'm gonna act like I have the life I want and imagine my "dream life" into my "real life" I will have my friends,money, clothes,shoes,hair,car everything I want! I just need to step into faith,ask God and Believe he WILL give me what my heart desires. IT JUST TAKES PATIENCE!!!
I`m exercising regularly and watching what i eat and i feel better everyday just knowing that i`m actually moving and grooving and shaking my hips to lose weight! I love belly dancing it`s so graceful and energetic i do chest shimmies and it makes me soo happy! I don't know if you've ever read Seventeen Magazine but the newest issue had brought another spark of joy into my heart to really focus on losing weight and eating right,and sleeping right.and you know what`s weird?? I never even liked that magazine I'd throw it away because it's all gossip,and sex tips,and how to dress like everyone else. I hated it I even threw it away in the recycle bin. But after 3 hours I was bored and started to read it and when i came to the exercise section. My jaw dropped because right there in front of me were real girls dealing with what i was dealing with. and to know that they overcame it made me soo inspired. Now that I've started to get serious about exercise I can finally see myself doing the things I never thought i could do before! Like play soccer,swimming,and acting.Now I've made a "dream board" and put up all of the images of the things i want (DS lite,My dream body,cool money,high tops etc)and tacked it to my wall so it's the first thing i see in the morning!! Kandee I seriously thank you for taking time out of your life to write these blogs for us, I get soo happy when I'm down and the first thing I do is come to your blog I feel like I`m in my "dream life" being surrounded by others who I don't even know. It feels like my "2nd family" I don't have many real friends just yet, but you feel like a TRUE AND REAL friend To me.Your like my sister a sister I've always wanted. Well yeah I just poured my heart out here so I hope you get the chance and read it...

Kandee,
your post is so inspiring... It matches the situation in my country - Poland. You really made me want to smile and move on with my life. I wish that everyone read your post...
Thank you very much :)

You do something for us that we can't find anywhere else. We can relate to you. You have showed us that NO MATTER what life throws at you, you haven't given up which shows us we shouldn't either! You inspire us and love us without even knowing us.

You make me happy and for that I am so thankful! For me, I'm a mom of 3, didn't get ANY encouragement as a child that I could be anything, so I didn't have any dreams of becoming anything. I am lucky to have met a man who loved me, but somedays have tons of regret. Some days we need lifting up, you do that. Again, thank you!

Belaonpues said...

Oh Kandee Kandee. I've always been the kind of person that never really gets to trust someone's intentions. With you I had the same thing, even though you seem always to be committed in what you do with your videos and blogs. I kept thinking what is it that you get from doing all of this. Soon I came to realize that you are not a liar you’re just a great kind of person, the kind that is really difficult to find. How incredibly wrong I was and how sorry I am now. You may think that in many ways your life is great, but believe me, someone like you has much more great things lining up and waiting to surprise you. Just wait and see. You are the greatest and I wish you the best of the best because you really deserve it.

Kandee,

How do you make me feel like smiling wide and crying hard at the same time? It's so good ... the past couple of years have been hard, hard, hard, but reading your blog is making everything start to look much more happy and MUCH more sparkly! Thank you for always reminding me of God's love. I hope I can meet you someday!

xoxo and God bless,
your newest Kandee family sister

Angel Ramirez said...

Thank you Kandee.
Im dealing with some problems and so right now and... is getting hard, so thank you for the encouragement.

Love to you all Kandee-Family brothers and sisters!

Everything that Michelle has written on her blog is so true. Every time I watch a video or read your blog it feels like my heart grows to twice it’s size. The way that you care about people and want the best for us is just the most amazing thing I have ever seen or felt. You encourage people and you have done the same for me. A little less then a year ago I wrote you email just to thank you I never expected to get an email back. You told me to follow my dream of being a writer and that I could do what I love. Before I received that email I had stopped writing because I didn’t think I would get anywhere, didn’t think I was worthy of that dream but ever since I haven’t stopped writing. I am happiest when I am writing and if it wasn’t for you I might have stopping doing what I loved all together.

You have this gift of inspiring and also making every single person in this beautiful Kandee family feel loved and I for one will never be able to say thank you enough for what you have done,
We all love you Kandee

I love all of your videos and they helped alot. But i was wondering what can you do to cover up redness on your face? Like on your nose?

joanne said...

Omg so this super!!! yesterday i was bored at home with my big 37 week prego belly and i was looking for ways to do make up and you pop up on and i started to see your videos on youtube and i was like seems like she has an amazing life i wish i could be like her.
I have taken cosmetology classes but i was never able to finish since i found out i was pregnant i change school and did this entire 360 and when from being an excellent and admirable young 17 year old to the pregnant memories of that girl. well point being i stayed up till like 3 in the morning watching your videos and then i went to your block and i came to see that you had a baby at 18 too. and my parents also wanted me to get married right away but i been able to fight it. and people also tell me that look at what ive done and that am not gona do anything and they have made me depress but you dint care what people said and you followed your dreams and today you made my ENTIRE day better! i have hope that i can do anything again and that i should follow your example.
THANK YOU!!!!! omg i don't even know you but you have a special place in my heart now.
Well just wanted to let you know. And if you ever have time just reply to my email you would make me happy and if not good luck in everything and thank you for your videos and the blog.

HMC said...

I'm a big fan even though I've just started watching you recently. I love colors and in a few years I want to go to beauty school. I love your videos and have gotten all my friends to watch them too!
Can you PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do a video for Taylor Swift's makeup in her 'Our Song' music video.
Also, it would be REALLY cool I'd you did a Rihanna look too.
Thank you SO much and keep doing what your doing!!!!
Luv ya!

PixieVoltaire said...

Thank you for being so positive, and get well soon sweetheart!

Carol Doll said...
