Let me share with you some sparkles of joy to turn your bad day right round' baby, right round!
I was having a "not-so-great" day this morning...and I read these lyrics from Peter Pan's "You Can Fly" song, (click here: to hear the "you can fly" song) which was prompted by my little babies telling me Peter Pan is their favorite ride at Disneyland...it's mine too!
As I read these lyrics I started to cry:
When there's a smile in your heart
There's no better time to start
Think of all the joy you'll find
When you leave the world behind
And bid your cares goodbye
You can fly
You can fly
You can fly
There's no better time to start
Think of all the joy you'll find
When you leave the world behind
And bid your cares goodbye
You can fly
You can fly
You can fly
As I sang the song, I thought...I want to bid my cares goodbye...
yes this world is full of troubles..things that cause up pain, hurt, frustration and sadness...
But I want you to know...just like Diamonds are made from intense pressure and incredible heat...when we go through intense pressure and incredible "heat" from life...we too will come out stronger and more brilliant and sparkling!
Take control of your thoughts....think a happy thought, "any little happy thought" as the song says...and let that thought guide your day. We can either have "sinkin', stinkin' thinkin'....or we can have "lifted, gifted, happy thoughts" to lift our feet from the troubles of the world..and fly us far above to find joy in our hearts and to spread the twinkle of love and happiness from our hearts.
No matter what today tries to "stink" up your thoughts with...refuse to let the negative thoughts guide your day. SAY: NO WAY! NOT TODAY! I WILL OUT-HAPPY-THOUGHT EVERYTHING!
You can think your way positive. Laugh a little-watch or read something funny. Give yourself a little love, watch your favorite movie, treat yourself to your favorite smoothie or a frozen yogurt, buy yourself something that smells yummy- a good smelling hand lotion or watch the sunset or listen to your favorite songs and dance in your bedroom!
Even if you've spent the night or day crying...the sun is going to come up tomorrow with a fresh new day of hope and happiness!
Be a hunter of happiness- no matter where you go or what you do...hunt for the happiness!
I made this little video for you...to encourage your hearts...to lift you out of the depths of a bad day...and to water that garden of happiness in your heart!
huge huge love....your kandee

kandee.. real sunshine!!!! <3 <3
kandee you are just amazing... thank you =)
Kandee = our own eternal ray of sunshine. You are such a magnificently strong individual. Who else can have their own serious issues to deal with day in and day out, and yet still manage to stay so positive and help those around her and offer such love and support. You are an absolute treasure and truly are an Angel sent from above. Much love to you and yours xxoo
You are very sweet...
Thanks for everything that was said. Just wondering how do I Get a chance at the celebrity bag?
Email me at Teras86@gmail.com I would love to talk with you.
You are very inspirational and your kids are very lucky to have you. What do you do when you are going to die because no one will take your case. 20/20 did a medical mystery segment on me and my soulmate about 9 months ago and I went to Cleveland Clinic where I found out more disease I have and they were no help and my neurologist almost killed me.
We came to Philly because 2 specialists that a girl who became a friend as she joined my carepage has mitochondrial disease, a rare disease you die from not long after you get it. They believe I might have a rare form of the disease.
These 2 doctors changed there minds and now we are stuck in Philly unable to pay rent or bills.
I grew up with in a very ritzy neighborhood as my father came from nothing and retired as the VP of IBM. Yet after being retired for so many years and buying up many homes and paying $4000 a month for my mother to be taken care of by a nurse as I used to care for her. My mother was supermom. I had the perfect life until my mother became bedridden 10 years ago but a year later, I met my soulmate Brian who has written to you. I took care of her like you would a baby for 4 years and haven't seen her for a year. She doesn't understand where we are and why we can't come home and be with her. My heart and soul are empty. On top of it. I had a group of close friends, I called my angels who helped me try and stay alive by getting 20/20 involved who wouldn't help after doing two segments on me, one I didn't even know about. They used my images on one called, The 5 Reasons Why To Seek Neurological Help. Both my legendary anchor who interviewed me, Bob Brown who retired and my producer Janice have begged 20/20 to help, but they won't.
I have ruined my soulmate/husbands life. We haven't been able to get legally married after 9 years together 5 of them perfect but the last 4 a living hell. I haven't been able to leave the house or my special bed for 3 years and haven't seen anyone but Brian in 4 months.
I have 2 choices, to have a non-profit organization put me to sleep and end my suffering so Brian, my brother won't be so depressed as he felt suicidal for a while as no one knows if my mother or myself will die first. Or I can wait for someone to help get the media involved? Brian has asked all of my friends to help and not one person has come forward to help. What would you do? I am so confused. I guess none of them are my friends anymore. So why should I stay alive? Brian will eventually be able to move on and he knows I want him to remarry and have a family.
I need someone to help get me to Johns Hopkins or a top clinic where a tema of doctors will actually finish the evaluation that Cleveland Clinic never did.
Need your advice as you have a lot of wisdom,You can goggle me and see part of the 20/20 segment and many articles. The only healthy picture is the one of me close up by myself anf me in a green sweatshirt I borroed to bowl in from my sister in law as I don't like sweatshirts. I am big into fashion and makeup. I consider myself a funky minalmist style. I love basics with fun and wild accessories and makeup and hair. I want to write a book to help others on how to beat the system and start a foundation. Have my dream wedding and have a family and then start my own fashion line and possibly makeup too. But nothing is going to happen because right now I can die peacefully by being put to sleep or be tortured by screaming my head off in the hospital because I become paralyzed if I sit on a chair or lay on a hospital bed and die suffering. Isn't it better for Brian to see me go peacefully?
Dear Kandee, I only can say "AMEN" to what you have said, Thank you very much for these words. May God bless you and your family! XX from Antoinette
Thank you kandee. I'm getting up for work now at 6am, it's gonna be another 13 hr work day for me. I have been overwhelmed and anxious. You brought tears to my eyes and the Love of God and a best friend to my heart right now. I thank God Now because of you. I hope you have a wonderful day. I will do my best to stay positive. You are an inspiration. I love you so much.
I understant perfetly the 1 June 2006 it was some of the worse days of my life.
A big kiss Kandee.
Thank you so much Kandee for your encouraging words, it goes right into my heart. I've told you I'm going through an awful depression since 3 years now, and you are my sunshine every day. Watching your videos and reading your blogs is for me the way that I can escape from all this horrible feelings. This video almost made me cry, as what you say is so true and positive. I already know I will watch it again and again every time I would feel bad again. You really are an angel on Earth. God bless you and your family for all the love and devotion that you're spreading around you. You are for sure a real and unique diamond !
Huuuuge kisses and hugs from the other side of the ocean.
- Myriam, somewhere nearby the Eiffel tower !
Ooh Kandee, thank you so much!
U said something that reminded me of one of the things my gradma always says to me when I am sad: "tomorrow is another beautiful, marvellous day, with LOTS of sunshine!!"
AND, u talking about being nice to people, it reminded me of the place where I felt the most loved by people...Disney World! Ahaha yeah, because everybody there is SO nice to people, they always smile and ask how we are, then I started being very nice to people too, it was the boomerang effect!
I was even very nice to a crabby taxi driver in Orlando...too sad he did not respond me back =/ oh well, at least I tried! =D
I LOVE YOU KANDEE!!
Thank you for your inspiring words. You help make my day and I wish I could meet you some day to tell you how much of an inspiration you have on my life. Thanks kandee!
Kandee you are amazing!
I have started amillion and one blogs before but i have always lost motivation because of negative comments etc.
you have really helped me see the positive side of life and i look forward to your posts every day.
i would love it if you would check out my new blog:
you get a little mention :p
Soo much love.
Kandee you help me so much. I can't explain to you how much I needed this. I'm going through the worst rough patch in my life right now. I just started college and I'm in the same relationship I've been in for almost 3 years. My boyfriend and I have had such a good relationship and we love eachother very much, but all of a sudden I started feeling like it needs to end. I need to do this for myself, I need to be independent...but at the same time..I'm going to be losing one of my best friends. I'm so scared of hurting him. Whenever he is sad I get 1000000 times more sad..and I'm going to be the one causing the pain. I just wish I knew that the decision I'm making is the right one. I don't want to stay in a relationship that I'm not fully committed to because that isn't fair to him. But its just so hard. I don't think I have ever loved someone as much as I have loved him. I know I need to do this for myself, but I'm dreading the moment of loss. I'm just so happy someone like you exists in the world to cheer us depressed people up. Thank you so much Kandee.
Thank you for doing everything you do. For taking the time out of your day, even when in pain, and turning into happiness for the world. You truly are a special person.
This video came at a time I needed it most. The sincerity in your words and the love that exudes from your heart brings tears to my eyes. You may not have met us who have a "sweettooth for kandee" (as i call it), but you do effect our lives, and we are all very lucky to have people like you in our lives.
wishing you all the best with every bit of your life. You deserve a life as wonderful as you are. <3
wow Kandee! i came on here to do my english homework.
it seems like this has been "the hardest/worst" month right now! but i know God is using it for my good. like you said "Diamonds are made from intense pressure and incredible heat...when we go through intense pressure and incredible "heat" from life...we too will come out stronger and more brilliant and sparkling!" thats what i feel like is happening to me. i have been crying my eyes out this morning because i been failing all my tests and then i failed my drivers test, and i felt like no one ever helps me.. WELL I WONDER WHAT THIS WAS! help from GOD! thank you soo soo so much kandee you dont know how this has brought joy back to my face
love you and
God bless your lil cupcakeeee <33 :)
have a great day everybodyy
I never comment but today I must say thank you for these words. You helped me turn my day around :-)
Your video reminded me of the verse "Death and life is in the power of the tongue" Proverbs 18:21 Its so true what you say you have.
I could listen to this video forever! you're my ultimate role model, Kandee! I perfectly agree with everything u said and I'm so greatful that I know you (even if it's only via the net) you are a true inspiration! THANK YOU!!! <3333 I hope my words add a little bit joy to your day!
I can't wait to see you in Reno. Your so inspiring and reading your blog everyday puts me in a amazing mood. Thank you soo much!
Thank you for touching my heart...my depression is the worst it's ever been, and I'm afraid that I'll lose my job...organisations aren't really understanding about these things...
I still want to fight, I still want to help others...just pray that God will keep me going.
Love you you sweet Mummy!
I wish you were my best friend!! this just made my day! I love the Diamond Theory! its so Beautiful and inspirational! and I hope that one day I turn into a sparkly Diamond person!
Thank you Kandee for these uplifting words! Last night was a bad night for me. I found out my friend lied to me and was talking about me behind my back when I have been nothing but a kind friend to her and it broke my heart. I felt like I wasn't good enough..and it can be so hard being a girl! This lifted my spirits, made me cry and helped today be a better day. :) Thank you Kandee. You are my inspiration and my role model and being 21 years old, life can definitely be a roller coaster with friends and pressure to do things and be a certain way around certain people and u really helped me. I love u! ♥
I think i'm flying right now!
That's all i need to say...
Girl you're just amazing:)
GOD BLESS YOU!
Oh Kandee! Just when I'm having the worst day/week and am thinking "WHY am I sinking into this unhappy "stinkin' thinking" as Joyce Meyers (and yourself) calls it! WHY am I letting all the people that seem to just love to live in turmoil and malicous behavior towards others get to me and ruin MY happy days!"...you uplift everyone with some simple truths and encouragement! It is SO hard to not get offended easily and start getting hardened by constant hurts and attempted attacks- but your advice and tips take me out of my "stinkin' thinkin'" to bright, hopeful, happy thoughts that rise above all yuckiness! Thanks Miss Encouraging Kandee!
How do you do it?
I try to be positive and sometimes it just doesn't work, and it kills me that there are so many people worse off than me and I'm griping about not having a job and this and that.
You're truly a ray of sunshine.
kandee you're so inspiring! i love that video!
just out of curiosity, how come you never talk about your bf? how's he doing?
Thank you for sharing your love Kandee... you are such a Godsend. I promise to take this love and spread it! :)
love you girl!
You are a wonderful person. Never stop blogging. You are so encouraging!
This is why i love to "visit" you^^
not only for you amazing art, but because you can make people think. You are such a blessed person =)
I wish all the best for you, you already know that.
I agree with every single comment you every get. You have a good spirit Kandee and I really wish I have the honor of meeting you one day in my life. You deserve all the success that has come your way and much more! :)
It's because of people like you that make the world go 'round
oh kandee you make my heart smile so much! you make me wanna cry every time you make a video like this ha ha ha! i love u!
OHHH My dear Kandee!
You read my mind today! I was having the most horrible day today. I felt sad, depressed I was crying the whole morning on the floor of my kitchen. I was feeling hopeless until I watched your video. You have no idea how much you helped me today.
You are an inspiration to me. and I feel God sent you to us to make our life more beautiful and happier. God bless your heart!
Our hearts are connected since the day that I met you at the Glaminars Pasadena.
Can't wait to hug you again.
Love you with all my heart!!!!!
kandee.... ur the best... thank u, thank, u thank uuuuu..... ur teh best... thnx for those words take care...
I like these song lyrics:
Smile, though your heart is aching. Smile even though it's breaking. When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by. If you smile through your pain and sorrow; smile and maybe tomorrow you'll see the sun come shining through, for you.
They help get me through the day :D
Kandee: Hi my name is Cristy, I have lost my cousin from leucemia (cancer in the blood), I would like to share this with you because besides all the painful days I have been trough, the sadness and bad days, I have learned so much about it and I know millions of people read your amazing blog!, Guys: I just want to tell you that life its too short!, now, every day I'am thankful for breathing, having all my 5 senses, walk, eat,etc.. Before I take it for granted, asuming that It has to be that way(wake up every day) but now I asses all the good things that I have! My husband, my family, my job, my friends and LIFE!! If we don't have health we don't have nothing, my cousin died and her husband has to pay a lot of money cause the inssurance end..so please guys ENJOY your life, don't be angry, stressed or sad for little things! Do what you love every day!..And a personal thing, I have been waiting to be prepared for being a mommy, I'am 31 yrs and I don't want a wait anymore because we never know..So we are going to do our homework in the next months!...THANKS KANDEE 4 teaching not only makeup but HAPINESS!!! (sorry 4 my english)
You are really a fresh of air. My family and I are going through a hard time right now, and just to hear your words made me realize that it doesn't matter how bad things are or how crappy I feel. God is in control and after the storm there is always a beautiful sunshine up ahead. Thank you,
P.s I know this might be too much to ask because I know that's one of the ways you make your living...but is there anyway you could do another contest like the one you are doing of the baby bag? Only that the prize would be a free ticket to your glaminar in miami this October? Like I mentioned before, family is going through a hard time and I really can't afford to go, however, it would really be a blessing to see you live. So uhm if possible maybe? If not, I'll faithfully continue watching your videos. Thanks! Just a thought...
Hi Kandee :) My name is Pepper and I've been battling depression for a while. I watched your Having a Bad Day video on youtube and it made me feel like such a fool for being so depressed all that time. I watched the video over and over because it made me feel so inspired and it made me feel better.
I wish I could be like you, always being positive even when things feel like they're falling through. For the first time in a long long time I didn't feel numb anymore, I felt happiness and I felt so inspired. Thank you so much for being able to put me out of the state that I was in, I want to try to have the same positive attitude as you, and I want to be as radiant as you are. Thank you so much for just being you, you made me smile and you made me happy :)
You are amazing, and I love the advice you give, you have such a beautiful heart. I really appreciate the kind words you give. <3
Thank you for this Kandee. I let the bad parts of my past get to me daily and it haunts me. This makes me feel like I don't necessarily need to be happy but I deserve to be happy. I'm known for being quiet and I think it's because my mind is always racing with bad things. Thank you for being such an inspiration to me and telling me that I should be happy because everyone deserves to be. You are such an incredible person and inspiration. Thank you! And don't ever forget that YOU out of all people deserve to be happy. You're such a good person!
Thank you for cheering me up. Ive been really grumpy all day but your video has put a smile on my face before bed.- I really didnt want to go asleep grumpy.
Thank you so much for the inspiration.
By the way, what color do you have on your lips? I have olive skin and have a hard time figuring out a great nude.
I love that song too! I have this cute little music box that plays You Can Fly when I open it. Whenever I feel hopeless, I open it up and listen to it till it stops. Then I feel better and I feel empowered and awesome! And I don't forget to rewind it for the next time I'm feeling down. Thank you so much for caring about others and I want you to know that I look to you as a role model!
You have no idea how much this particular blog spoke to my heart. My week has been poopy so far and I've wanted to do nothing but lay down and let my emptiness consume me. Everytime I have a moment coming on where I feel like breaking down and crying I think happy thoughts and it helps me get past my emotions and go on with my day. Thank you so much for being you and inspiring people like me! God Bless you and your gorgeous family!
Such beautiful words from such a beautiful person --
In my 51 years, I have learned this: a moment is only a moment long. And the next moment can be completely different than this one.
Thank you so much for speaking what essentially are the words of Jesus and Paul, without offending anyone's views on religion. Well done and well-said. You have helped -- ministered healing -- to many people with this, and God is smiling.
Oh Kandee... I love you!
Holding on to your happy thoughts so you can fly away is such a great message, the guy that wrote Peter Pan is such a genius. My happy thoughts are my hubby and my son. :) I hope you have better day today!
Awesome. Even Jesus says there's power in speaking things out! Go Kandee :)
Thank you your words.
The words spoken at 2:15 have changed my outlook on the hurt in my heart.
Thank you so much for making this video. It makes me feel so much better about my life. I have a handicapped mother and brother who I do everything for every sec of the day. And I'm finally going on vacation to see my bf and I'm so worried and anxious that I'm going to have a bad time and I know now that when I wake up in the morning everything is going to be okay, and I'm going to have a great day
You should do a My Little Pony Makeup tutorial for Halloween :)

OMGOSH kandee you make me cry but in the good way! I have been having so many bad days in a row and I have just been in a funk that I couldnt pull myself out of. thank you so much for this you truly are a bright light in this world that is so dim. I wish the world was full of people like you.
I think I posted on you tube but I am so not a techie that I am not sure my comment is there, so here we go. I always try to remember that someone is having a worse day and that I need to try to open my heart, listen and send out that boomerang you talked about. Please pray for my cousin who recently died (Memorial Svc was just Friday)leaving behind a VERY young family. Thank you <3 XOXOXO
I hope your day got better. Thank you for trying to keep others positive...even while you're dealing with your own "stuff." ;-)
love u kandee hugs glad your my friend too
You are an amazing person
First and foremost I have to say "Thank You," for the blogs, ideas, and most importantly for videos like this! I've watched your other video on "Break-Up Bootcamp" and that was inspirational too! These last few years haven't been the greatest. Im trying to find myself, get myself through college, and help my family.
In the "Break-Up Bootcamp" you said so many things that touched me and that I could relate too. It helped me to see someone that has came from the same place I have been is still happy and full of joy, just gave me more hope! The "list" you had nailed most of my ex's too! I was in shock when you were reading it off. Im holding onto what you said about a persons worth and being a diamond! :)
In this video when you said "being a prisoner to your hurt, pain, etc." that really hit home. Ive held in so much of that for the past 12 years of my life I need to let it go. Just hearing this video lifts me up and makes my day a whole lot better! You are such an inspiration! Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to make encouraging videos like you have! I wish you nothing but the best in life and congrats on your little cupcake on the way! God Bless!
Those who spread sunshine onto the lives of others, cannot help but to shine unto themselves...
Kandee, I hope you have people in your life who tell you this too. Someone so wonderful should have someone to lean on every now and again. You have inspired me to follow my dreams when others only questioned them, or dismissed them as silliness that I would outgrow. I hope you know just how much we all need you in our lives. This is the first comment I have left you, though I read your blog whenever I need a pick-me-up. I have fallen in love with make-up again and try to live each day as something new and wonderful: 'what would Kandee do?'. I wish you the very best with your growing family, and I hope you continue the huge success that you so very deserve. May your light shine forever, for all of us to follow in our times of darkness.
Much love and hugs and smiles from Australia!!!!
