This is sad truth, when your heart yearns for a certain soul and all you can do is close your eyes and remember them as they once stood tall and ever so handsome in front of you, holding you like they would protect you from all the cruelty of the world. And just like that....when they LEAVE you, it actually feels like your entire soul is being ripped out of your body..... But I am truly thankful that my mind is more powerful than my emotions because even tho it hurts, my peace and joy remain as beautiful and humble as ever. I have learned to transfer that hurt emotion into an ultimate drive toward growth and understanding!! #growth #elevation #energy #selflove #empath #pureheart #inspire #higherconsciousness #loveroflife #mindfulness #meditation #mindpower
My play #SheSaidHeSaid
in 2016 the #TorontoPremiere
that I directed produced and starred in. I have 2 more plays hitting the stage in 2019 #ScotianJourney
and 2 more plays and 2 books I'm working on write now. (I meant write now🤣) My full time gig ended a week ago and last night once again someone asked me "So what are you doing next?" And I said "I don't know." And they were like "When you go back to Toronto what will you be doing?" And I said "I have no idea." They seemed very uncomfortable with my responses and I'm not sure why. Are those the societal norms that creative people are supposed to have? If my contract didn't end I would be working but before this I was doing Consulting, teaching, coaching and writing. Is it that people who only work full time don't understand the life of a creative?
Here's the thing. I worked an amazing contract for over a year and I will be looking for work. But why do people do that? In many ways I need this break. I hope to write and do research and apply for work in my field.
If I could live a dream. I would get $200 000.00 in funding and I would start my young company for racialized young women again. I would set up a Canadian and US tour for my two youth productions. I would produce She Said He Said again in the fall and finish writing my books and plays. And then work with Tony Hall in Trinidad. I wrote 6 grants to try and work with him over the years. But, to no avail.
I have faith and a belief that something will work out. But, in time I'll figure it out. Because I'm a go getter... and I'm not stressin so you shouldn't stress about my life or career.

Oh dear.. look what the cat brought in! 😳 .
🐱Once my foster puppy left for her adoptive home, stray mummy cat thought the safest place to keep her babies was my garden.. .
🐱She showed up with two small black kittens, one in very bad shape.. I am allergic to cats and am in no position to keep them, yet as I still had some left over puppy food I put some out to hopefully have the runt pull through as mummy is weaning them. .
🐱Upon my return from Amed - no food for 4 days- I had hoped the cat family had packed up.. yet mummy came running up to me when I came through the gate.. sigh..
🐱This time with one little black and a new gray kitten (from a different litter as bigger)... I assumed her skinny & mangy baby didn’t make it and mum adopted another one 💕
🐱These are the ones in the picture ~ skinny, yet still ok.. .
🐱Then yesterday after a whole week, suddenly the little runt shows up..she’s still alive..😯..just.. so now I have 3 kittens & a young cat miauwing and sleeping on my veranda.. .
I know this is a long shot, but PLEASE dear Bali friends, should you be able to take one or ask your friends, I’d be so very grateful!! 🙏💖
Stop scrolling and let me be your Accountability Coach. THIS IS FOR ANYONE...
REASONS WHY WE DON’T GET THINGS DONE
1. Not sure what to do 🤷🏽♂️
2. Failure to set deadlines 📆
3. No plan with the end in mind 💀
4. No accountability partner 👩🏼🔧
5. Overwhelmed 😟
6. No clearly determined ‘why’ 💡
💯 I always get asked on my hey BBT podcast, “how do I balance my personal and business life so well?” Or “how do you make money when I’m always traveling?”
💯 It has taken me years to figure how to be extremely productive in less hours.
💯 I have been coached by many so I know what works and what doesn’t. Through my coaching you develop and execute on your short and long-term goals, as well as improve in areas that you may have overlooked.
💯 I’m going to share my process for being super productive, and getting it done in the least amount of time possible. Once you see how this works, you will be able to keep reaching those goals and getting the important stuff done. As you gain more ownership of your time, the more free you will feel. =======================
