Lose One, Won One!

I just won My first award as and adult in the media field. I was nominated for two awards! A first for me! It was for my former show Breaking Into with James Lott Jr on Black Hollywood Live. the judges after two rounds nominated me for Best Host and Best News Entertainment Show Recorded or Live! I was estatic! I ended the show earlier this year after 4 great years on the air!
What made it even more special was it was for a new and exciting and inclusive to people of color award show , the Capital City Web Awards!
They were held at the Arc Theatre in Washington DC. I didn’t think I was going to win but that didn’t matter, I wanted to be a part of this historic occasion! Also they asked me to co present the Lead Actress category!
After a hard travel experience of almost not making it, I was there! The best host category was the first of the night. It was a trip hearing my name! I lost. I got to feel what that was like. I wasn’t upset, it went to great people. I wasn’t surprised. It was all good. I was able to relax.
Six awards later my other catergory was up. I assumed the winner would be the show of the host winners. My bow tie was hanging off me, I was relaxed in my seat .
Then they said “The award goes to …Breaking Into with James Lott Jr”
I was shocked to say the least! And apparently my speech was the hit of the night! It came from my heart!!
Thank you Anthony Anderson and crew for making a dream realized for me after 12 years in the biz and at age 50!
So now I have the full experience of an awards show!!

Find The Positive

It’s not easy to do sometimes. It’s not easy to a lot of the time! But it is necessary to do If you want to continue in life. Sure you can be negative and live but what kind of life is that?!

I don’t like living darkly. Living darkly can lead me to think and do all kinds of things that will hurt me and others around me. I choose to look for the positive spin on things. That doesn’t mean that I don’t see the negative, I see it. I look for something out of it can help me.

A great example is my Bells Palsy! It sucked to have it! I hated having it! Now I take that experience and travel across the country and share it with others in a presentation format and get paid for it!! Now I’m helping others that might be going through it or something similar. I found the positive.

I invite you all to try.

Keep Your Bull Doody To Yourself

Keep your bull doody to yourself. Yes to yourself. What is bulldoody? Well it’s whatever you are trying to sell me and none of it’s the truth.
I respect straight talkers. Sometimes it hurts lol But it’s necessary and clear. Don’t do something shady and then try to play it off. If you didn’t want to be involved in something or go to an event , just own it.
I hate when people try to turn it into something else. Or worse turn it on you. Beginning sentences like, “ I thought you…” Just admit whatever it is and be honest. As a grown up I don’t do anything I don’t want to do. It is my right and yours.
The message of this is to be fully who you are. Know that your actions have reactions. And be honest throughout.

I Have Changed and the Change Feels Good

I have changed and the change feels good

The last 4 years have been very interesting for me. I am using the word Interesting instead of a stronger language word. It has changed me . I’ve lost a bunch of important people and animals in my life. My career had some gigantic lows and now some amazing highs. My health went bad and now I’m coming out of that. In other words life happened and it profoundly affected me.

I also turned 50 this year and that has forced me to take a good look at my life and see where I am. So I am changed.

Some People are having a hard time with me being changed. Other folks haven’t even noticed. But everyone is finding out through my actions and words. Things that were okay for me before aren’t so now. I used to let certain things slide, no anymore. I would settle!! No more of that. I know I can survive just about anything that is put in front of me. There is comfort in that. I don’t have to accept the way I can be treated. I can accept the person for who they are but I don’t have to let them treat me however they feel.

I like the newer, much improved me. I’m okay with the choices that I am making for me! I invite everyone to do the same. It feels great!!
