The Callback - Part II

This is probably not going to be my longest post ever.  I promised you that whether the news was good or bad, I was going to share something with you today.  I've been keeping this under wraps because I wasn't ready to share it just yet.  However, today is the day.  I hope that you find this inspirational and learn that you should never let anyone take anything away from you.  

I've learned that when doors close or slam in my face, it is usually because there is something greater.  It hurts for the door to do that, but you just have to keep the faith.  No, this isn't about religion.  I really don't care what religion your practice because that is your freedom and your choice, I'm just telling you to have faith in all that you.  A few years ago, I was approached about doing something in the entertainment industry.  Not thinking I have the body to be out like that, I laughed it off, but at the same time, it did peak my interest.  I'm a writer, so I had to start getting used to people seeing my face.  I started doing photo shoots in order to get my image out there and I found that I really enjoyed it.  Sure, it was something that I could do and the more I did, the more I kept saying "Wow, that's me!"  

A few months ago, the same thing happened, but I didn't laugh it off.  Then a few weeks ago, I was asked again and this time I decided to give it a shot.  In my short life, I've also learned that if more than 2 people tell you something, they must see something in you that you cannot see in yourself.  Today was the day.  I had practiced, and practiced, and practiced.  I had learned that even when I messed up a line, keep going because only you will know that you messed up.  Nerves are a good thing because they keep you on your toes.  All the prep work that I had put in since last Saturday must have paid off because when I heard those words Welcome to the agency, I knew then that my life was going to change.  

That's right!  Not only is your girl writing, but she is also now with an agency that is going to market her as an actress.  Isn't that cool?  This would have never happened if I would have let doors (whether they were the hurtful words of people, the dirty looks, or negative feedback from anything I was trying to do), keep me down.  There is potential in all of us.  We just have to figure out a way to tap into it.  We are here for greatness.  

Don't worry - I'm still going to write.  I'm still going to be part of Manik Mag (www.manikmag.com).  It's just that now, I get to have more of an inside scoop.  I think this is the beginning of a wonderful thing for me and I look forward to being transparent with you (as much as I'm allowed to do so) about this journey.  

Honestly, I just want to say THANK YOU!  You read my work.  You keep me going.  You keep me motivated.  You are such a blessing to me and I hope to be able to give back to you what you have given me.  Ok - I'll stop before we all get emotional, but those words are true.  

If there is a goal you want, keep going until you get it.  Then, here's the really fun part, set a new goal!!!  I know that I already have.  Good luck to you and your endeavors.  Mark your positive mark on the world.

Many Years of Thursdays

Trigger Warning: Sexual Assault

I had a blog post ready to type.  I was going to tell you about my birthday month and all the fun I had during March celebrating with family and friends.  And then, Thursday, March 28 happened and Grey's Anatomy hit me with Episode 19 of Season 15 titled Silent All These Years.  As hard as it was for me to admit my story, when I posted tweets about being triggered and the experience, I finally typed WE instead of simply saying you.  

I along with many people were triggered by that episode that night.  Quite frankly, it's hard for me to write this post, but I'm going to push through.  

My typical Thursday looks like this - work, workout, do a devotion/bible study, eat, shower.  At 8pm EST, I am only communicating via Twitter because I'm going all the way in with the live tweets and enjoying my time with the Grey's Anatomy and Station 19 viewers.  It's part of my boundary that I am strongly holding on to this year.  However, that part…

POWER

Disclaimer: I will be mentioning my Christianity.  It's not the full topic of conversation, but it will be in here in a few spots.  Proceed with caution.  

"He has kids because God knew when you met him, you wouldn't act right."
This isn't the first time this has been said to me.  Well, not in these words.  It's always something and then you wouldn't act right.  Now the first time this was said to me, I got a bit spicy.  As it has been a continued phrase in my life, I honestly haven't paid it that much attention.  Why?  I know my relationship with myself and I know my relationship with Christ.  So, I did tell you that religion was not going to be a big thing in here, so I won't drop scripture on you.  However, we are going to have a little chat about energy. 

I've been extremely in tune with myself lately.  I've accepted a few things about myself...

I'm an empath I'm healing I'm on a path of discovery
Did you noticed how I took…

Painful

Ayesha Curry has been the talk of all the innanets for about two weeks now.  I'm not going to dwell on this because I have other things to discuss.  However, I will say that I wished she would have kept that in a private family conversation.  Just because you are in the light doesn't mean it all has to be in the light.  Also, I get it.  We all want to feel wanted.  Even the people clowning on her want to be wanted.  But go on ahead and continue to go off about her living a lavish life when you cannot figure out how to live your best one.  Moving on...

I didn't do my first Wednesday post this month.  Yall are just going to be hearing from me once in May.  But, I try to be as transparent as I am comfy with.  So, without telling too much, let's just say the end of April and the first 12 days of May have been a horrible hell that I didn't even know could exist.  However, I'm moving along and still standing. Let's be real - anxiety is a real piece of work!
