Reposting the INCREDIBLY HONEST post from our influencer @ambrosiacarey - her story is one of the reasons we do what we do at hashtagbeauty.com 👏🏻💋💪🏼
Well hello! I thought I would take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Ambrosia, that is my real birth name...my Dad was a major Sci-Fi geek and named me after the tv show #battlestargalactica
I am a workaholic & I think that mostly comes from starting life as a teen Mom. I had plans to go away to Art school, but plans changed and I became a Mother at 19. People felt bad for me, pitied me, and thought I wouldn't make much of myself. I'm not gonna lie, things were really hard for a while...I qualified for every Government assistant plan possible because I was barely making ends meet, working & going to school full time 5am-11pm. My diet consisted of mashed potatoes & Hamburger Helper, I had several credit cards in collections, and remember thinking 'this is temporary, you will prove to yourself & everyone else that you can do it all.' This isn't a woe is me story, this is a story to share how powerful a mindset can change things. By fighting for the unknown rather than succumbing to what is known, miraculous things can build from that mindset.
I've had a couple of hairstylists reach out to me recently admitting they're thinking of quitting. I want to hear your story & how you think you can turn it into a success! Please share with #ambrosiastories so I don't miss YOUR story! #beautystories #stylistslife
