I know...I know.. it’s been an eternity since I’ve posted on here and truthfully I’ve wanted to, but I didn’t know how to start. Soo much has changed, things have evolved and sometimes I don’t have the words to express it all. I have at least two “never before seen” posts in my drafts (I’ll more than likely post them). So listen, I’m sorry I left y’all (I like saying “y’all” just let me live) hanging, I had these thoughts that you guys were over hearing me blab about my life and honestly there were times when I just wanted to live, enjoy, and process and not tell anyone how I feel..
But I’m back! For now.. I can’t promise you that I won’t need another cebaticle lol.
Nonetheless, I’m here because today we celebrate a monumental day.. *clears throat* IT’S OUR ANNIVERSARY YA’LL 💁🏾♀️🙌🏿😭!! TWO YEARS... we’ve been on this journey for TWO WHOLE YEARS!!! Yea I know, I can’t believe it either but it’s true, two years ago today (February 24th,2017) I left Bermuda to pursue this crazy dream,to trust a journey and wow, we kinda like,did a lot!
I was sitting here reflecting on how wild this all is, I moved across the pond to become an actor.. yea, without knowing anything.. no agent, no UK industry experience, no industry friends, no handouts, no fear... ok that’s a reach, I was terrified! But I really did that, and you know what, I’m proud of myself, and I’m thankful! Thankful for my tribe who have pushed me to persevere, who’ve supported me endlessly, whether it be financially or just talking me out of a depressive state, who have encouraged me when I couldn’t do it for myself! All the messages of encouragement! Checking in on me! Putting up with my attitude (sorry sis) Just the overall love that you all have shown me! Thank you guys!
These two years have been the most challenging times of my life, I’ve had to face some hard truths, come head to head with some real demons and had to rediscover who I am (I’m still working through that last one) I’ve failed in epic proportions and I mean I’m currently not having the time of my life but sis, look what we’ve done:
-Scored an agent within my first couple of months.
- Made it into some cool auditions
-Booked my first UK production
- Performed at an Opera House!
-Got an audition for a leading UK Tour
-Got the job! Worked with some of the most talented people I’ve ever met and traveled around the UK!
-Had nightly hugs with Jo Brand behind a Christmas Tree! JO BRAND!!
- Had Dany Dyer tell me that he “ ********* LOVES ME” 😂
- Performed for 4000 people at the Hammersmith Apollo! ON MY BIRTHDAY!
- And now I’m represented by one of the leading agencies in London!!
HOW DID THIS HAPPEN GUYS!? (I’m obviously in tears now) Do you know how many times people have told me I should get a “real job” tried to convince me that my dreams were “Just Dreams”! Do you understand how many times I doubted my abilities? How many times I’ve told myself that I’m not deserving! Man, this is wild! Life is wild! The Journey is WILD!
The wildest one of them all is this wild God I serve! Every prayer I’ve prayed has manifested in His time! Every tear has been purposeful! So today I remind myself, and you that what He says He will do will be done! It’s not up for debate, hang tight on His promises, stay in His word, trust His process and Trust His Journey!
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY GUYS! WE DID IT! I LOVE YOU! 😘❤️
