Hope for the NEW YEAR!

no matter how horrible or hurt filled..that 2010 may have been....
we're gonna hurdle over hurts....and soar with hope into 2011~

Together...let's make 2011 awesome...we're gonna go after our dreams and hopes...and we're not gonna let any hurts, discouragement, or bad situations stop us!

QUOTE OF THE DAY:
"if you keep looking back at your past problems and hurts...you're going to crash into something in your future because you're not looking at the future in front of you!"

10 things to help make your new year bright:
  • 1. Leave the hurts of 2010 where they belong..in 2010!
  • 2. Make this year the year you make some goals- goals are dreams with deadlines!
  • 3. Dare to be different in everything you do!
  • 4. Encourage, compliment or say something kind to everyone you talk to.
  • 5. Live like a leader...not a follower.
  • 6. Stop avoiding confrontation- take control of your life and deal with all things you want to change and the ways that people treat you.
  • 7. Make a change- in anything, relationships, your hair, career, friends.
  • 8. Only have friends that make you a better person...some negative, rude, depressing friends, thay make you feel bad...may need to stay in 2010! (ha ha ha)
  • 9. Dare to live life and make choices even if your not promised the outcome. (people who have changed the world or accomplished great things...did things without knowing if it would work or not!)
  • 10. Expect greatness, seek happiness, and don't let any circumstance, person, or situation steal your joy. You are the owner of your happiness...don't just let any ol' thing or person take it from you!
Here's a special video I made that I hope touches your heart, encourages you, and fills you up with more hope and excitement for 2011!
Let's go show 2011 what we got....skills, talent, dreams, hopes, and heart that is ready to be filled with love and happiness!

We're in this as a team....GO TEAM KANDEE FAMILY! I love you all so much...and am honored to be able to speak love into your hearts!

Please feel free to share this message, pass it on on your twitter, facebook, myspace...let's see what the how the "kandee family" can share this and encourage others this year! (lots of depression creeps in...I've even seen it on my facebook...people not wanting to live anymore...let's help encourage hurting hearts for the new year!)
huge-gantic love, your kandee

Hanna said...

Hi kANDEE

after having read your post, what struck me was one of your pointer's about complimenting people.

i have been following you since u started and got hooked from the beggining. HOWEVER i never ever took the time to compliment you or even write a comment as such, not because i dont think u deserve to be complimented, but rather, in my mind,i just thought that it never really mattered if i actually wrote to you, and complimented you on your awesome posts and videos.i have never been one to compliment in words( more thru reactions) but since we are on the net, i guess you cant exactly see me smiling or my eyes sparkling when i see your videos.... lol.

but now, i really feel that i need to take this opportunity to tell you that you are such an amazing woman, and you prove it all the time. you have kept me company when times were tough and when i felt lonely.you have inspired me to keep on going, you are warm, caring, genuine(unlike other guru's) and so motivational! i don't know why i never told u this, or made any effort to comment and compliment despite the fact that for the past 2 years, i have been following your blog/channel and FB RELIGIOUSLY. lol

so Kandee,for 2011, i am going to start off the year in a good light by telling people how i feel, and u r one of the firsts.. you really are a beautiful soul, both inside and out!, and please keep going! u have no idea how u have been empowering us, even if it's in the smallest manner.

best regards-
a silent fan (hehe) ;)

Happy New YeARS Kandee and BUFFFYYYY tehe

Anne said...

Kandee, I just want to say thank to You. Each of your videos always cheer me up, even if it's jut a little.

2010 was very bad for me, I was ill during more tha a half of it, had some familly issues and several weeks ago finally have realized , that I've chosen the wrong path in my life. I'm studying psychology and I always knew it's not my dream to do it, but my family encouraged me to, beacause "it's such a prestige faculty!". I was only 17 when I had to choose my studies and I didn't know which one I WANT - not which one I was supposed to choose. I always wanted to do something related to Arts, especially music, but was such a stupid and cowardly teenager... I'm 20 years old but now I'm feeling like an old woman who can expect nothing good from life.
Now I'm about to drop my studies and change my life for good, I'm determined to do so, but I am afraid of almost everything...
Your words give me courage. Thank You for everything. You're an amazing woman.
I hope that this year will be filled with awesome days for You and you children.

Anne

the video you made last year touched my heart so much and this one actually brought tears in my eye! Kandee, thank you so much for your encouraging words every January 1st! :)
I wish that your 2011 will be the most amazing! <3

VictoriandKatie said...

I love your 9th tip to help make things better in 2011...because I organize my own toy drive every year where I live for children less fortunate than I am at the hospital and local family and children dept. and I never thought that I would get to where I am today. I started just thinking it'd be sweet to do a little something 3 Christmas' ago...and now it's been my third year organizing my toy drive. It's truly amazing to get that feeling of doing something great for others without thinking before that it'd turn into what it turned out to be! Happy New Year Kandee! xox-Victoria (ps: I am 15 years old)

ShayC said...

KandeeJ, this is so precious. You are such a voice of love. And I know, just like you know, that whatever a (wo)man sows is eventually reaped. I know that you've given so much of your time and love and gifts to others. I'm looking forward to seeing God bless the mess out of you! Happy New Year Lady!

fmanzo13 said...

Thanks for the spreadin the hope and happiness into 2011!!!
And i would actually love if you made some videos about your weight loss and your tricks to help you get back to your goal weight. Losing weight and getting healthy is a huge goal for me, so it would help me out a lot to know someone else is having the same struggles and achievements as me!

you are truely an exploding ball of sunshine...and what you said really gets a person to give a second thought about his/her attitude towards life...so thanks for being such a great inspiration to everyone, and i wish you and everyone reading this blog, a happy newyear filled with rainbows and sunshine =)

Elizabeth said...

Thank you so much! It is so good to hear that someone else feels the way I do about the New Year. I have a job that I love and a 12 year old son, so I feel like I should be so happy and greatful and content, but when I am not at work and my son is gone, I feel invisible. The first two days of the new year have consisted of me cleaning, organizing, and wandering around my house alone. I have been feeling all this pressure to do SOMETHING so 2011 does not continue the way of 2010. The people I have tried to reach out to have so many things going on in their lives, or do not respond. Outside of work and being a mom I just don't know where I fit. Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for knowing how I feel and letting me feel like there is a chance that things may not be like this forever. Here's to 2011!

Niamh said...

Thank you Kandee :))

FaeryNova said...

Thank you Kandee for being such a positive and happy person in my life!! 2010 was filled with so much negative and depressing things and people and I'm so very determined to make 2011 an amazing and Happy year! Lots of love and hugs to you and yours!!

NatalieLaura said...

Kandee this is EXACTLY what I needed to hear! I love these kind of videos, it was kinda like your "how to survive a bad day", and YES you should totally post videos and such when you're trying to lose the baby weight! You are so knowledgeable, I would love to see and hear what you think is best! Thank you for posting :))

Tonie said...

Kandee my name is Tonie Rogers. I know you get so many comments that you read and I just hope that this one sticks out to you. One of my dear dear friends, Micah Huggard and his fiance, Kyoung-Hee Kim passed away on Christmas shortly after he proposed. His jeep rolled down a steep cliff. His cute fiance is from Korea and they are trying to raise enough money to fly her body back to Korea so that she can be buried next to her dad. There is a wells fargo account set up for them under the Huggard/Kim Christmas Day Memorial Fund and even if we could just get a dollar from a bunch of people it would really help. Her family doesn't have the money. I was just wondering with your powerful voice and enthusiasm if you could pass the message on through one of your videos and could help this struggling family through this tragic time. Their love story and tragedy can be found on KSL.com. Please e-mail me and let me know if there is any way that I can spread the word or if there is anything you know of that I can do. My e mail is tonieellen@gmail.com. Thanks for your encouraging words Kandee. There are many days where ive tuned into your channel and it has made my day.

Thank you so much for your words.
Now I believe that 2011 will be full of happiness and new hope:)

Hayley said...

Kandee I dont think I could have gotten thru my new year with out your words. I had the WORST new years of all time. My boyfriend decided to go to lunch with some guys after work but then 7 hours and no phone calls later he comes home really drunk and saying very mean things to me. and he passes out! we had plans to start 2011 off great. my favorite number is 11 and this year i feel like its going to be my lucky year to do the things i want and not take no for an answer! I was very hurt and upset by his actions and for him ruining my new years but then i read ur blog and it was like my heart felt this invisiable presure release. Thank you so much. I know that means word hurt and cant scar your heart. but ive learned to reading your blog that encouraging words and kind words can help heal my heart to! I cant say Thank you enough or express how much your word mean to me!

Kandee, I just found you online after watching a movie with Audrey Hepburn Cat eye makeup that I desperately wanted to do but failed miserably over and over. Thank you so much, I watched your video and finally did it right last night and my boyfriend loved it. He said I was "exotic". You seem so amazing at this makeup thing, and I want to learn so much. I have been stuck in the 90's make up for too long. Thank you, and you're simply adorable as well as an amazing teacher of makeup tricks. It really does make all the difference. I am following your blog and subscribed to your e letter.

Mack Hanisco said...

Kandee - I love your attitude! We are very much alike. :)

A couple of things help me remember to let the past go...

One is that our bodies completely regenerate every 7 years. I heard this from Dr. Wayne Dyer. Old cells die and new ones begin - some faster than others of course. So every 7 years, we are basically a new person. Things that happened in the past did not even effect the person you are today - literally!

Also, when you don't let go of past hurts, you victimize yourself over and over again. You're allowing the person that hurt you to continue to hurt you, even though they're not even present. Why would you want to allow that to happen? Why give away your power like that?

Forgiveness is key. :-)

Happy New Year!!!

Aly Darling said...

So true, so true. :D
So much peace can be had.

I lost my brother & grandpa to suicide years ago & have been dealing with depression for years. I don't share that for sympathy or anything, but because I can and do have peace these days! No matter how much pain resides in the heart, it doesn't have to control you. Yes, it's taken me years & I still have a hole in my heart for them, but I thank God every day for the peace and forgiveness I have found! I found a place where I can be OKAY, where depression/pain doesn't rule me - where I can make choices, where I can have peace. Learning to seek peace, not to rake myself over the pain of the past AND the everyday hullabaloo definitely helped too.

And of course, God is always there.

Thank you for sharing your faith, Kandee, so many people are so caustic about God these days. Such a sad thing! After all, God is the personification of love, what better faith to have in one's heart? What better force to fill your life with? You radiate with love, Kandee. :}
I hope you have a beautiful 2011 & that all goes ever so well with your baby.

Thanks again & again,

Aly

My 2010 was filled with disappointments too.. I fell when I was bicycling, and left elbow with scars, I fell while ice-skateing, and my right cheek swell and hurt so much, but afterall that happened I had a lots of love and support from all of my loved ones, I was happy and positive. Afterall those were little accidents, worse things happen in this world ,and luckily I didn't lose anyone that I love etc. Let's look forward to this year, and let's all get on to that plane that Kandee was talking about, with luggage filled with good hopes, love and positive thoughts. :) Love u Kandee <3
