"Black in Time" by @simoneshepherd
For all the beautiful Black males we've lost.
For all those boys who will never grow to become men...
For all the mothers, sisters, wives & daughters who have a void that can never be filled...
For all the families broken by the cycle of violence against Blacks in America.
We honor your memories.
We acknowledge the pain.
We will continue to strive toward TRUE equality in your names. #NotForgotten#ChangetheNarrative #Actorvist#TiredofThisImagery
"Does anybody really KNOW when its right? And how DO you know? Are there signs? Fireworks? Does it feel comfortable? Or is comfortable a sign that there aren't any fireworks? Is hesitation a sign that it's not right? Or is it just a sign that you're not ready? In matters of love, how do you know when it's right?"
~Carrie Bradshaw, SATC, "Just Say Yes"
Oh my, how much can change in a year!! Last #ValentinesDay I was posting about the #singleLife & getting ready for my man somewhere out there...Lo & behold, he found me!!!
For as long as I can remember, I've been a romantic. Hopefully waiting for the "man of my dreams" to swoop in & knock me off my feet! I wanted that thing they wrote songs about, that "Notebook" movie kind of romance, & I wanted it to be REAL for me; not something that I created in my mind or made excuses for. But, after SO many years of being disappointed, of being told "it's not you, it's me. You're an amazing woman....I'm just not ready for commitment". After years of tears & venting to my friends about being alone & wanting to fulfill that part of my existence, and being told to be patient..don't push a man..just be easy etc., I...WAS...OVER IT!!
So, I got in my pocket & started to work on myself, getting to know me...what mattered to me, what my deal-breakers were, & WHO I wanted to BE in this world. THEN, I start dating with EASE. No pressure, no hardcore expectations, but I DID ask the hard questions. Questions that before, I shied away from because I didn't want to "ruffle any feathers"! But this time around I didn't care! I wasn't trying to force anyone to be with me, I just wanted to be clear about what MY desires were; and if we weren't on the same vibrational wavelength, I could release it with ease.
Of course there were some stumbling blocks along the way, but I finally found the answer to Carrie's question. I'd heard friends speak of this kind of love, but I never knew if it was true, or one of those things people say because it SOUNDS good.
And then, out of nowhere, there he was, making HIS intentions CLEAR. And I KNEW.
Turns out it's true, YOU JUST KNOW. #notebooklove#hesmybird#Vdayvacay
"Do not share your ideas with anyone until they are fully developed. If you start talking about your idea before you have created the momentum, somebody else can offer a little bit of lackful thought about it, & before you know it you've got contradictory vibration going on; and then, it's done. You do not go any further."
When @simoneshepherd first brought this idea to me, like always, I was hype! She thinks of these amazing concepts and writes these scripts effortlessly! But this time she was trusting ME to draft the script! Nervous, but thrilled to be creating with my partner, we got to it! As her directorial vision unfolded, I got even MORE hype! I'm SO excited for you guys to see #FacesofHeartbreak#21417 thanks to an amazing cast that BROUGHT LIFE to my words!! #kiyaroberts#actor#writer#storyteller#WomenwithVision#partners#contentcreators#funnygirls can be #dramatic too! #realactors#range#changeup#allwomeneverything
