This is your woman on the move Supe’s of BKS1RADIO.COM. Last night I attended the Premiere of Draft Day staring Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner. The event was hosted by Mario Manningham of the NY Giants at AMC Lowes Theater in NYC. The movie starts slow with a timeline of what happens behind the scenes on Draft Day and a somewhat complicated relationship between Costner and Gardner’s characters. It’s definitely not a heart wrencher or action packed adventure, but it does have a great message for young people and as a mother of eight that goes a long way with me. I am a bit of a novice when it comes to the NFL and Draft Day and I am not sure how close the movie is to fact or fiction, but I enjoyed the performance of Chadwick Boseman as Vonte Mack. Boseman played Jackie Robinson in 42 where he delivered an outstanding performance and in my opinion he captures you every time he is on screen. I would definetly recommend taking your kids to see this movie because of the underlying messages about personal responsibility and embodying good character. The die hard NFL fans will get a kick out of this movie as well.
Today I embarked on a new journey and I want to share with you why. As I get closer to another birthday I have searched my heart and mind and have taken inventory. As I reviewed the list I saw areas that were falling short and places that were hollow. I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, Aunt, friend, and most importantly a child of God. In my self analysis I discovered that in all my doing I was leaving someone out. This deep look inside was further sparked as I thought of our beloved Whitney Houston’s passing and not to be critical, but I thought of the party taking place in the same building where her spirit had just departed. I realized the world goes on no matter the happenstance.
This revelation took me to that place of interspection and I saw the person I was leaving out in all my sincere intentions and in my desire to do good, I left her behind and she was frail in spirit, weak in confidence and weary looking on the outside.
I decided I wanted control back and it started today. I hope that you will join me in this journey. I realize we may have different paths that we will take. My hope and desire is that we encourage each other through the process. Today was a beginning of self awareness for me. My mind body and soul are ready to be rejuvenated. Let’s grow together. As women we are very unique and our sisterhood so important to our growth. I look forward to sharing our struggles and solutions. I look forward to the strength we will find with one another. I am not doing this alone My trainer the Fitness Doctor aka Reverend Kahlil Carmichael is helping me to get focused on my diet and exercise. He has designed a manageable work out program for me that I can do at home. I am listening to Find A Way to Make A Way by Harold S. Reed to motivate me and I seek my Heavenly Father to encourage my spirit. One step at a time ladies lets take one step at a time.
