last night i was moved to tears…

i had the pleasure of being invited to attend the taping of the Black Girls Rock awards which will air on BET Nov 7th.   it was nothing short of extraordinary.   i sat with chills running through my body because of the power and magnitude of the event.   this is a show solely dedicated to the strength, beauty and courage of black women around the world.  every performance; every announcer and awardee spoke words of encouragement, hope and determination.  

i consider myself very blessed because i have parents who love me and told me i could be anything i wanted in life.  i believed them and aspired to be.  but even with their support and the prayers of my grandmother; it has been challenging to say the least.  

the event was like looking in a mirror and seeing myself in all my glory.  talking to my soul and reflecting back the potential i have for greatness.  those were healing tears i never know i needed to shed. 

the show is not only for black women. the audience was filled with women of all ethnic backgrounds, there were plenty of men and all of us were inspired.  i encourage everyone to watch when it airs Sunday Nov 7th on BET at 8pm (est) and spread the word…
