Here’s my nails for this week! My Dad’s nickname is Tree so these are for specially for him :) To those who don’t know me personally, life has been quite hectic lately as my Dad has been going through major health issues, and we recently found out that he is dealing with stage 4 esophageal cancer. I am very close to my dad and this has kinda shaken me up a bit, so although I am continuing my usual Wed-Sat work schedule, I appreciate flexibility and understanding if anything comes up for future booking and appointments. I love my clients so much and thank you for all the support 💛 #nails #nailart #cnd #shellac #treenails #fallnails #glitterombre #sparklynails #glitternails #treeworkahead #autumnnails #treenailart #almondnails #ovalnails #roundednails #instanails #nailswag #nailsofinstagram #nailsbybreasha
This is my Dad. He is my hero, my rock, my everything. He has been going through some major health issues recently, and today we got news that what he is dealing with is a form of stomach cancer. It would mean the world to me if all my friends, family, coworkers and clients could please just keep my Dad’s health and my family in your thoughts and prayers as we enter this rough season in our lives. Thank you 💛
One day, I realized he might not exist. My soulmate, I mean.
I realized there might not be someone walking around this earth just waiting to meet me. Someone with a private world just as intricate as mine that, one day, I would get to share and be a part of and know.
And I realized I was keeping a vacant spot in my heart for this person who might not exist. That I wasn’t allowing myself to be whole because how could I be whole with my other half missing?
It was an excuse, of course. A simple view of life that would exempt me from having to put in the effort of filling myself up with the love I was waiting for someone else to supply.
The reality is this: Life is a churning, chaotic thing with no guarantees, and in the throws of the tumbling you might run into people to hold on to for a while. Sometimes for a night, sometimes for life.
And holding on to someone is a worthy thing. A wonderful thing. Something to look forward to and appreciate and embrace with your whole heart.
But the love you get from holding on to someone will never be as reliable as the love you can give yourself. Right here. Right now.
So here’s my advice. Be open to love, but don’t be empty for it.
This was my first look for the contest! The theme was New York, and although I like what I came up with, it was ultimately my downfall because I got so worried about the time limit, that I simplified a little too much and sold myself short. #nails #nailart #iheartnailart #sallyhansen #nyc #nycnails #newyorknails
