It’s a new day and a new chance to make a difference. This weekend I did a lot of things, one among them was watch the Essence #BlackWomenInHollywood luncheon. This is a yearly event, however it had never been televised until this year. Oprah Winfrey graciously televised it on OWN TV.
I cried,cheered and was in awe of the awesomeness of the ceremony. If you follow me, by now you should know that I firmly believe that we were all created by God for a purpose. I think He comes up with the plan( dream, purpose) then reaches back and picks a body then wraps it around that purpose…LOL. Just like a factory plant. Anyway, I say this to say that the women I watched are all living their dreams and purposes but it didn’t come easy. Here are a few quotes I found powerful
“I dreamed the biggest dream I could find.”~ Viola Davis
“Our fears can be our greatest liberators”~ Gugu Mbatha Raw (Belle, Beyond The Lights)
“We all experience fear but courage is moving fiercely through that fear”~ Regina King
“Stop waiting for permission” ~Ava DuVernay
“For every no, the mere existence of ….. Should give you hope. (feel in the blank with the person you admire, a mentor) ~Iman Milner
