A Passion, Then and Now


Back in the day I had a huge passion for entertainment. I still do. I have interviewed many celebrities, and have had an infinity of great ideas over the years. The photo above is of me and Usher back in 94/95. That interview was the second celebrity interview I had ever done, and I was so nervous. I went on to continue to work in entertainment, but at some point in my life I decided I was done. Yesterday, I had a wonderful conversation with a friend and she lit a spark under me that I am questioning at this very moment. She went on to remind me of the talents I have, and to not sleep on them. I will say that God has always blessed me by opening doors for me in the entertainment field where others were stopped at the door, and left with the peep hole. I guess at this point its fear that's holding me back. I so appreciate the heartfelt conversation that left me in tears as it really reminds me of my passion. I don't know what road I will take, or my destination, but if you have a true passion for something deep in your heart don't let it go to waste. Find a way to use it some kind of way. You just never know what could come of it. In the end, you end up a happier person because you did not suppress that passion. DREAM BIG!
