Are you a Dream Fighter?

I was looking back through all my old blog posts...and found this one that I posted exactly one year ago to the day...
it's funny how in this year, so much has happened it kinda feels like 5 years ago.  I want you to know that when all hope is gone, when you feel like your dreams are over....that's usually when gears are turning for your dreams but you just can't see them.

It's like turning your car on...you're in the car, you can't see the pistons firing and all the stuff turning and getting ready to make the car go...but you know you are going to go somewhere...even if you aren't MOVING YET!!!!

Get the idea here?

You may be in your car thinking...."oh man!!! I'm not even going anywhere. We're not even moving...we're never gonna be able to go anywhere like this. What if we never leave the driveway?!? oh maaaaaan!"

Yes you will!

Just like when you're sitting there, you can't see all the parts of the motor preparing you to move on out....but you know they will!

Sit back in the comfy seat of life, no matter what your car looks like, what your driveway or garage looks like...and know that gears are getting ready...turn the engine of your hope on...and believe that your "car" is gonna go somewhere!

here's the post I wrote one year ago today (actually since it's now 1 am, it would technically be yesterday, but I've been working all day and night! ha ha ha...may it touch your heart and inspire you....
Please share this or pass it on to a friend that could use some "heart & dream" encouragement....
made with love, kandee

hi all my precious people....
my heart has been so touched and encouraged by all your emails and videos....
and it made me realize it's time to share a bit about me, that might encourage all of you...
I want all of you to become Dream Fighters...to fight for your dreams....
and here's a little bit of me trying to share a little bit of me...which is hard to talk about...since a lot of people don't know a lot of this....

I love you all and want you to know I'm your biggest cheerleader to go after your dreams!!!!
huge love.....and here's the video

You are so passionate and enthusiastic about your dreams. Sharing your heart like that must have been hard for you, you made me cry so much..for the bad times and the good times. You are a true inspiration.

Thank you for being so open and honest, I know how hard it must be. Your story is definitely inspiring and I'm so happy there are people like you out there who still have such a positive attitude and passion after all the negative things that happened to them. It's so easy to just lie down and die or give up but it takes a lot of courage and motivation to get back up and pursue your dreams. I don't think people are going to judge you because of what happened in your past, if anything, you're a success story and a proof that ANYTHING is possible! Plus, motherhood is so cool these days :))) Thanks again for sharing the story and (as always) am looking forward to your next video!

I loved that video. It's been saved as a favourite video of mine on youtube for a year now :) xxx

Go get em Kandee!!!! ( your dreams that is)

I have been so encouraged after hearing your story because my story is similar (I thought my dreams were gone after a series of wretched events) and I am now on my way to achieving my dreams! It's amazing how, like you said, being taken through rough times in your life is what gives you the ability to see beauty in all things and usually, very ironically, puts you in the right direction for your life.

Thank you so much for using your God-given talents and sweet spirit to encourage us all. You have such a gift and I know God SMILES from heaven seeing you using it to your best ability. God's blessings on you--SPLASH!!

love you dearly,

Mollie

It takes a brave person to share your failures and secrets with strangers. Thank you for being so courageous! You never know what people are going through until you take time to really look at them and begin to understand them. Thank you for relating to every girl out there. You are such an amazing inspiration. You don't let people bring you down. You always see the positive in every situation. All I can say is thank you!

LittleMuki said...

I enjoy so much watching your videos and reading your blog. Thank you so much for giving me hope. Your amazing and I think the day I found your videos was meant to be. =) Keep on inspiring people...one look, one video, one heartfelt blog at a time.

Reading this made my day better, thanks!

LBmakeup said...

I remember this!...I can't even remember why now but I was feeling really down that day and as though my life was going nowhere...This video make me cry!...It was almost as though it was meant for me. I can't believe that was a year ago!

Jennlynn said...

Kandee,
Never ever feel embarrassed about your past, it made you who you are today and that person is AMAZING and talented. You are touching so many lives with your love and knowledge. Just know that you are never alone. Thanks for all you do. You are a true inspiration, i hope someday I can be a makeup artist just like you!

Anouk ter Velde said...

Dear Kandee,
Thank you so much for (re)posting this video and sharing your heart and feelings with us. You're such an amazing person, I don't even know how to describe it.
It takes a lot of courage to open up like this and I really want you to know that the ones who know how to appreciate you will never ever judge you. They will open up their arms and accept you for who you are. Your past is what made you into the person you are today and honestly, thank God for it! You inspire so many people, you can't even begin to imagine. There are those who leave a comment, but I know for sure that there are hundreds and perhaps even thousands of people who only read your blog and feel inspired by you.
You and your loving words always make me feel like things will get better. I had days where I honestly didn't know how I'd ever be able to be my positive self again, and seeing how amazing you are has restored that faith :)
Huge love and hugs!!!

~Shan said...

Kandee, I am so inspired by you. I have tried to sign up for the Houston Glaminar for several days but everytime I log on to that page, no option is available to actually sign up. What am I doing wrong? I would really love to attend and get information. Please help! Thank you so much!

emalyce89 said...

I just turned 21-years-old earlier this year, and I've been in and out of college and jobs trying to make ends meet, feeling like I've been going down a dead end road. School seems like a dream that is impossible to achieve at times, because I struggle so much to just financially make it work. I've had so many dreams since I was little. When I was nine, I felt so compelled to sing and be an artist of some sorts--writing, painting, and designing things. I have had so many things break my heart into little pieces over the years, such as the death of my dad, my eating disorders, my mom fighting a terminal illness, physical and verbal abuse, my cousin dying, and so on, but I realized that God builds us back up. We have mosaic hearts. I love how you say that broken pieces of glass shine more light than one that has never been broken. Thank you for sharing your video. Even through videos, your heart has such a bright shining light and that's why we all love you, Kandee. You are inspiring and I know that someday I'll be where I need and want to be. I've started putting myself out there doing odd-jobs during my unemployment, but they bring me closer to fulfilling my dreams because these odd-jobs are doing something I love--making others feel beautiful.

God bless!

Dana said...

I've watched this video a million times. It is so inspiring. I am so proud of you for going through all of that and deciding to be the wonderful, happy person you are. It makes you even more beautiful. I think it is videos like this that gave you your show.

This video made me cry and made me appreciate life so much more. Thank you for this gift. By sharing your world you are impacting mine.

Melissa said...

Your video made me want to pursue my makeup dream so much more! i felt like i couldnt do it and people thought it was stupid but its something ive always wanted to do! I went to Aveda for my cosmetology license and i found out i still love makeup way more than hair.

Makeup has been my passion since i was a little girl, i love making people feel like there beautiful! What in your opinion is the best way to go about getting myself out there? I try to go to makeup counters to get jobs but they always dont have any openings and i feel like i need them to do it because, theyd supply me with all the makeup i need for freelance! What do i do?

Keat ' Camafeo said...

Hi Kandee, just finnished to watch your video, it's the first time i see it. When I started to watch your videos I was just completely amazed, i just love your work, i love everything that you do with make up and i've learnd so much from you.
Well what i want to say its that your video inspired me very much. I'm passing a moment of my life when once again my dreams were defeated. I was really sad,cause i work so hard for nothing and i just wanna give up everything. But i realized its not the end of the world, and my friend and i are going to prepare an exhibition of ours paintings and drawings =) First i was questening myself if it was a good idea, i was afraid that people just didnt show up or just make fun of our work. But after seeing your video i know that i made a good decision and i'm going to put my fears away and continue with my life. I know that there must be something good for me =)
Thank you so much for everything, you are so beautiful and fun that i cant even believe that you pass for all of that.
Please keep sharing your art and heart with us ^^

Iolanda.

iEartheAngel said...

Hey Sweet.. Thanks for re-posting this wonderful video.. I remember this from a while back when I was 'stuck in a rut' & depressed.. & since watching your videos I have started my journey of self-healing & including my 'dreams'.. which I thought I wasn't allowed because I was a Mum & I had to always nuture everyone elses. I now know I want to do makeup & I have also learnt to do Reiki, so I want to help people 'feel' beautiful on the inside & do their make up & show them they can also look beautiful on the outside.. but importantly beauty comes from 'INSIDE'.. Since watching your videos & learning to look after myself inside & out.. I have started looking younger & people comment.. I am almost 40 & I look 10yrs younger..just from my own 'self love'.. So I want to help people feel the same.. & pass on my knowledge.. & it all started with you & your dreams.. But I believe my dreams will happen when it is the right for me & as long as I put the work into nurturing them.. they will grow & bloom & happen when I have grown to accept them.. THANK YOU MY ANGEL.. you are pure inspiration.. & have FINALLY found my TRUE SELF!! many many heartfelt thanks to you Kandee & I wish all the happiness in the world for you & your beautiful family.. Sincerely Mel xxx

Jennifer P~ said...

dear kandee, thank you so much for sharing with me all those beautiful word. although they are meant for everbody, I really did feel like it was directed to me.. theres so many times when i feel down and things just get worse and worse but i always have to have hope because that is the only thing that can brings me a ray of light. i also believe that god put you in my life for a reason! i discovered you on ebay when somebody put a link up of your video. it was the how to fix broken eyeshadow. you truly make me feel great and you are that pick-me-up when i am down.. thanks so much, you tell me all the things that i long to hear from those around me! and we are so much alike too, trying to think positive and hope the best for everybody while being nonjudgemental. and it really is a beautiful feeling knowing that you made someone feel happy and important!! thanks for helping through my rough patches and for encouraging me to go out there and make my magic happen!! i love you!! hugs and kisses...god bless you, i wish you and your family the best because you deserve it!!! :D thanks for your amazing videos!

Lindsey Hughes said...

Kandee, thanks for posting this. I found it and all of your posts so encouraging. I just graduated from college and I have been struggling with feeling depressed, anxious and lonely. I have always wanted to work in the entertainment industry but have been too scared. Now I'm going to go for it! Thank you for being so strong, so beautiful and so open about who you are! I don't know you but I feel like we are so much alike! keep shining :)

Kandee, I just discovered you on Youtube tonight, and I've gotta tell you, you are AMAZING!!! you are so sweet and bubbly, so very, very talented! I love all your little make-up tips and tricks! They're all so... so do-able, and you make it look so easy! You have an exquisite, fantastic personality! All I want to do after watching your videos is smile! Just watching this particular one, I feel so much better about myself! You make me want to look at my life, where I am now, and push myself to move forward! I've been in such a rut lately, where I really don't know what to do, and your story really, truely inspired me. Thanks, Kandee!

You made me cry, but in a good way! Thank you for opening your heart Kandee. A kind person like you definitely did not deserve what you've gone through. You truly are a blessing from God. You are so inspirational! And I love your passion and enthusiasm it just glows right through you. Keep up the good work, and thank you for reminding me that I can accomplish my dreams!

Coreen said...

Hi Kandee,
One year my Grandma passed away. She was 93. It is bittersweet because her death completely changed my life's path...
This time last year I had hit rock bottom...
I wrote this last year before New years...
‎"2009 summary: Knocked on deaths door but it wouldn't let me in, chose LIFE. Accepted God back into my life, pursued my dreams, watched them come true, Lost 55lbs, moved into grandmas house, went back to school, found my true passion, met true friends..."
Life is about change. Sometimes its painful, sometimes its beautiful but most of the time its both.
One year from now, I hope to be able to inspire people with my passion the way you do.
See you Saturday! Can't wait!!!

I go to an incredible ministry school in california and i get to hear guest speakers who come into my school and speak about their lives and hardships, and after all of it, you are the most inspiring person i've ever had the opportunity to listen to. Your incredible. And the gifts that you have are soooo huge. Its insanely apparent in everything you do. Even just in doing makeup videos, watching them for the very first time it was easy to see that there's something different about you that people need. For having never met you, I feel so incredibly blessed that your a part of my life. I am sooo inspired by you, and i admire you so much. Thank you for being willing to share your heart, That in itself makes you so amazing.

You are an amazing person, i found myself crying through this whole video. You are inspiring and beautiful inside and out. You deserve all the wonderful things in the world.

hi Kandee - have you heard the song "It's Amazing", by Jem? It's such a cool, inspiring song - hope you like - here is the video:

Valerie said...

For the past year or so I have been watching your videos here and there when I have a chance or of something catches my eye like the costume makeup tutorials and every time just watching your excitement just makes me feel so motivated to go out there and do something that I love as well.
I too am an artist and am currently pursuing my dream in Graphic Design because I have had so much positive encouragement in high school about my work. Through this first year and a half of doing boring general classes I have felt down in a rut as if I am not getting anywhere and my goal is too far away to reach and people have been telling me that I'll never get a job. But after watching this video you have inspired me so much and made me feel like all of this monotonous and boring work will be worth it in the end and that I just have to keep driving to get to where I'm going no matter how many pot holes there are in the road.
I think you're an amazing person and what you do is amazing and talented and your just so beautiful both on the inside and out.
Thank you for sharing your video and it has touched me greatly.

Betssy said...

Thank you so much Kandee.
I'm going through so much right now and honestly this made me cry ,but I'm more determined to move on with my life and be optimistic. Reading your post makes me feel like I'm not alone anymore. I hope one day I can meet you in person to tell you how much you help me get through though times. I also hope that one day I can comfort someone else like you comfort me. Thank you.

Wow, I saw you as a most popular prom queen kind of girl. Who could not love you? It took a lot of courage to talk about the hard times in your life to help inspire others. Truly, you are beautiful inside and out. Thank you for the kind, wonderful things you wish for people. You deserve it back a million fold!

Jeanett said...

I normally never cry, but you really touch me Kandee.. I can feel your love and you're really, REALLY inspirational..

I'm following my dream, Im a socialworker, but I have a terrible boss, now I won't let him get me down, Im really good at my job - and I LOVE doing it and helping people, and if he cant sppreciate that, I dont want to be his employee - you helped me realize that with your blogentry about your past

I think you're a beautiful woman, inside and out and your children are LUCKY!! to have a mom like you

Thanks for sharing your story Kandee! You are so inspirational. Keep it up!! :)

I love you Kandee (:
You're a real inspiration (: xxx

knights_ash said...

Thank you Kandee, for being such a wonderful person! You are so full of light and joy! Right now, I feel like I'm in a figurative limbo- like I'm stuck in between chapters of my life, and waiting is so hard. My dreams seem so far away sometimes, and it really gets me down. But you inspire me to keep going, and fight for those dreams! (Your constant cheerfullness, bubbly attitude, and infinite smiles help too). Your make-up tips are also sooo helpful! While I'm trying to make-over my inner-self, you help me take a look at my outer-self and show me ways to improve, so that I feel more confident and independent. This sounds so silly, but your videos helped me over-come my fear of eyelash curlers!!! Before, they looked like torture devices, but now that tool is quickly becoming my best friend! Thank you so much, Kandee! God bless you and your family!

It's Just Me...Cindeeee said...

I am a dream fighter because of you!!! A year ago i was on my youtube account and under the videos that they suggested for me was this video...i must admit i didnt know who u were but i was down in the dumps and thought "what the heck...i'll just watch and see...its a long video but i've got time..right??" well after the 20 minutes were up i couldnt wait to see more of you...u were this inspiration and fascination... this one person who i wanted to be like...including all the stuff u had gone thru bcuz it made u stronger and a fighter for your dreams... then i thought to myself and realized that we all have had our obstacles that god has put in our life to make us stronger and bcuz of that we just roll with the sad times too...bcuz theres light at the end of the tunnel!!! just like u!! u found your light, your dream... so now the question was "what was stopping me from reaching my dream?" well i dont know and still dont. i recently went to your glaminar in l.a. (i was the one who worked a 12hr shift and left work straight to your glaminar) i did my pretty tinkerbell inspired makeup in the car and hoped to just get to look at you in the eye and tell u how much u inspire me...and i did(i got a hug too)!! that was the flicker to the flame that burns inside of me to want to do soo much more. the umpphh to go and fight for my dreams, and believe me im up for a good fight if it means making me and the rest of the people i meet happy. makeup isnt just about the looks on the outside but what it makes you feel on the inside; and whether that be happiness, joy, or excitement or anything good then thats what i want to do for people. i want to be like you a happiness maker, joy bringer, inspirational teacher, exciting energy and light at the end of the tunnel!! so a year ago i stumbled across this video and have not regreted any minute of it. its the video i go back to when i feel like all hope is lost and giving up feels like the only thing i can do!! this video brings me back to reality and makes me a reborn dream fighter!!! thank you sooo sooo much kandee!!! from the bottom of my heart xoxo-cindee

I needed this encouragement! Thank you so much Kandee!

Ashley Lydia said...

hi kandee ! I am new to your blog. i just wanted to say thanks for this video. Im a figure skater and lately have been dealing with alot of stress and doubt. I am 22 years old and learning my triples. I started at 12 which is just about oh 9 years late lol had an injury and heart problems at 17 and had to stop till 20 then came back strong had two major 9 month long injuries. and now since novemeber I have been going full throttle to make it to 2014. Most people claim its impossible. I have all the elements minus 3 jumps. I believe in myself its just hard when other jeer at me or think Im starting to learn these jumps and they are coming along in record time. My first competitioni back will be in April. Thanks for being so encouraging and helping me stay positive. You are an amazing make up artist.Hopefully one day i can meet you and you can do my olympic makeup =) Hugz Ashley Lydia

Dear Kandee,

I just want to say that you are the most inspirational, motivated and happy person I have ever seen. Thank you so much for sharing that video with us. I cried so much... on both the sad parts and the happy parts :) I just think it's so amazing that you have grabbed your life and dreams by the reigns and taken control! This may sound kind of corny, but you have made my heart soar on the wings of hope. I now have more hope for my dreams than I did before. I will work on plucking the weeds out of my dream garden! I just have to remember that Kandee is cheering me on all the time. I'm cheering for you too, girl! You are my miracle, Kandee! Love you and stay beautiful!
