Ever Onward

If you hang out at my house long enough, you'll find all my post-it notes. I love post-it notes. I even have written a poem about post-it notes (no, you can't read it). I write messages to myself on them to keep focus of certain things, to remember to keep positive, etc. I've got one by my desk that says "Manhattan-based makeup artist, Amber Santos". It's there just to remind me of where I want to be. I haven't done much about it, and for a while there, I thought I was going to loose focus forever. But a lot has happened lately to make me realize I should be pursuing it more. In the past week, I've experienced the following: 1. Getting dizzy looking at the MAC website 2. Tom picking up my makeup kit and shaking at me, telling me I should do something about "that dream of mine" (and giving me that look that only Tom can give me) 3. Rob reminding me of that sticky note and telling me I know I'm meant for bigger things than the dental office 4. Getting into a half hour discussion with a patient over shades and consistency of lipstick and realizing I actually have a lot to say on the subject. 5. Just today Dr. Robert (that's actually his name... and I get the Beetles song stuck in my head everytime I talk to him) telling me in an off-hand, full of meaning sort of way that sometimes dental assistants don't like what they are doing, and that's ok, they can just pursue something else.

I think I'm going to make a go of it. Again.
