There are a lot of mixed felings of this holiday, Thanksgiving, but for me I take the title literally and have turned this day into giving thanks. Some years I have given back to my community on this day. Oher years it’s time for me to cook for the family and pour all the love I have into the food.Either way I see it as an opportunity to be together and be grateful and thankful!
Happy Giving Thanks Day!
Ms Carroll passed away last week at the age of 84 and it made me very sad. I didn’t know her personally but I admired her career path and how she carried herself during that long career. She was a groundbreaking artist several times over. Two reasons I loved her: Her history making roles on Julia and Dynasty. She wanted to be seen like everyone else AND as a black woman doing it. It is very similar to how I live my life…change woman to man lol She fought hard to play roles of diverse nature like in Claudine for which she was nominated for an Oscar for Lead Actress. She wanted to be and became the “first black bitch on television” when she played Dominque Deveraux on Dynasty. She wanted the same juicy line s and antics as the other ladies on the show and she got them.
She was classy and sophisticated and of course beautiful to look at but she also radiated beauty from within. I love the say she spoke. She also had a sense of humor. She felt like an Auntie to me. My of my long time friends and family know I was a big fan. She was a good actress and I am so proud of her singing too.
I will miss any future performances of hers but we have a long past of her work to watch when we want to. I hope her journey to the other side wasn’t too painful. I will miss her.
I will never forget the morning of September 11th 2001. It is seared in my brain and in my heart forever. Today we take a moment to rememeber all those who lost their lives that day and every day since because of what happened that day …
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.
