Bentley & Jacqui & Gabriela & Joanna:
Find your people, they say:
Found ‘em!
Here are 4 of the 60 souls I got to meet & grow & be challenged by & learn from & play with in Santa Fe last weekend.
Find yourself, they say.....
Still working on it!
But now I actually believe I’m never alone.
And it was especially special to be there with my amazing pastor Rev. Jacqui Lewis who is changing the world at @middlechurch with her commitment to spreading #revolutionarylove. Love. Period. There’s room for all of us on this planet. Even me. Even you. No matter what.

Light is the BEST filter, swear to GAWD. And if that’s not a metaphor for life, I dunno what is. #FINDYOURLIGHT. Here’s me being VERY on brand in this airport- kombucha & all 😌. Stepping out of the shadows and into the light on an adventure this weekend. Time to shake things up and do things I’ve never done. Here we go, universe 💛 #sayyes #glowup 🙌🏾💁🏾‍♀️

I’m very much under construction, but I’m starting to get the feeling that this is the point of life. Anyone else? (❤️ @cleowade)

It’s possible to smile and be strong and be supportive of yourself and other women all at the same time. V cool event last night @29Rooms. @wwboxnyc came thru with the killer workout and the amazing inspo as per usual, and @reebok made sure everyone was fully supported with this freaking cool bra that we all got to leave with. I FEEL SUPPORTED IN ALL THE WAYS, PEEPS! ❤️🖤❤️ #puremove

Legit SEARCHING for my hat, gloves, scarf, leg warmers, ALL OF THE THINGS bc it is 62 degrees today, you guys. I’m a tropical flower. I like to be warm, but on the bright side I AM looking forward to getting to wear this coat again (my favorite) & overpaying for Tall No Water Almond Milk Chai Tea Lattes at @starbucks (no pumpkin spice lattes for me, srry) #basic #winteriscoming #getready 🍂🍁☃️🍁🍂

Was already out and about for the day with nothing but gym clothes & audition clothes when my crazy generous friend was like, “Tennis. Tonight.” Let’s be clear that I did NOT realize until late in the day I was gonna see @serenawilliams in the semifinals and I did NOT know that that that’d be followed by getting to see Madison Keys & Naomi Ōsaka (WHO STOLE MY WHOLE DAMN HEART WHEN SHE WAS LIKE “UMMMM, I LOVE YOU” when asked if she had a message for Serena before the finals. NAOMI, WE CAN RELATE CUZ WE LOVE SERENA TOOO! (Sorry for the screaming I was excited 🐒🙈😍)

Long post alert: Its my birthday! But I really want to celebrate my mother whose love inspires me and literally kept me alive against all odds. Talk about Labor Day: Three decades + ago she gave me life. And I was a drama child from day ONE.....// September 1, 1982 I came into the world at 1:21 am weighing 3lbs 4oz, premature with underdeveloped lungs. I was airlifted to a Children’s Hospital where I stayed for my first three months of life, far from my mom who still had to work & go to school...so she’d visit me by a LONG bus ride across many towns whenever she possibly could. She believed in me then that I’d make it, and I did. And that’s how it’s been my whole life.// Despite my laissez-faire persona on here, a lot of what I’ve achieved so far has been against all odds. I’m blessed with a STRONG foundation of support that tracks back to sacrifices and decisions that my mom made for me: from sending me to Liberia to be raised and loved by my grandparents until I was three to fighting to get me into the best of the best schools and programs growing up in Seattle, my Mom used her motto “Where there’s a will, there’s a way,” to make sure I have the world at my fingertips.// So, real talk: I have a lot of dreams and goals. Some things are panning out, others still seem out of reach. But as an adult, I’m slowly learning that my biggest failure can only ever be not loving myself when I have been SO LOVED even when I didn’t see/feel it (those terrible teen years 😬)// Love you, Mom. Thanks for always putting me first. And for making me a fighter. I see it all now. You’re the Queen of my heart.//
P.S guys: My story is gonna be hella childhood pics today, fair warning 👧🏾 💛

Friday reminder to find your joy. Let yourself be happy, kids, cuz at the end of the day “You can’t elevate until you celebrate where you’re at.” 👀🙏🏾🙌🏾 Paraphrased from @officialbonnetchronicles who keeps it allll the way real in her videos so roll on over to her account for inspo & laughs. r/g @refinery29 @buddhabalboa 💙💓💙💓

Wherever you go, there you are.....
so here I am in all my pigeon-toed, veiny, emo & awkward glory. I’m working on self-acceptance, inside & out. #iamwhatiam #glowup
