Tyler Perry


Happy New Year Eve Darlings!

I wanted to take this opportunity to chat with you about Following Your Dreams Until They Happen! A few weeks ago I was bless to spend the week working as an “EXTRA” on an upcoming Tyler Perry “Untitled” Movie (Look at God! My first Movie! You have to claim it!). I’m sworn to secrecy so that’s all that I can say! The experience was life changing and I even received some amazing camera time alongside him in a scene. The experience was a small step towards a larger outcome. At the beginning of this year I wrote in my vision/manifestation journal that I wanted to work with Oprah (Own Network) and Tyler Perry (Tyler Perry Studios) in some capacity. 

Earlier this year I was blessed with some camera time on the infamous “Greenleaf’ in a church scene with Charity which I applied for as an extra to get a feel of the set (Click here to watch). A few weeks ago I received a call out the blue about my availability for Tyler Perry’s movie. I’m saying this to say NEVER DESPISE SMALL BEGINNINGS. Small occurrences and turn to huge results. 

During my time on set I met some of the most amazing people either pursuing their dreams of acting, getting a feel or experience of working on set or simply there to earn some extra cash. While on set I was amazed at what work goes into creating a show or movie. There’s a million small details that come together to create something BIG. As I waited to be told where to go or what scene I would be in next I decided to finish reading Tyler Perry’s Higher Is Waiting. If you haven’t read it I highly suggest that you do. Purchase it here.
The book contains so many gems and urges you to “FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS UNTIL THEY HAPPEN!” That’s exactly what Tyler did! Here’s one of my favorite FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS QUOTE:

The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.

RIGHT HERE! RIGHT NOW! I’m claiming a principle role on a major network show or a major movie. I plan to do whatever it takes within my reach to my dreams. We may still have a few days left in 2018 but my ideas, dreams and creative juices are all the way in the second quarter of 2019. 

“As it is written: I have made you the father of many nations. He is our father in God’s sight, in whom Abraham believed – the God who gives life to the dead and calls things into existence that do not exist”. (Romans 4:17 CSB)

As 2018 comes to a rapid end I strongly encourage you to do something everyday that will lead you closer to your dreams. Purchase a notebook or journal and write down all of your ideas. Create a vision board so that you can visualize your dreams daily. Write your dreams in post it notes and stick them in your bathroom or desk so that they serve as a constant reminder. Remember you just need to get started. FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS!  

I look forward to what God has in the works for my life in 2019. Until next time……..
