I attended a screening of Inyala Vanzant’s “Fix My Life” yesterday at Sony, and I was not feeling it. I am glad people are tuning into to it and giving the OWN network high ratings and all --- but I feel weird and odd about two things that I see when I watch the show:
- A woman fixing everybody’s problems. Why do women have to be repair people?
- I feel that the program gives an unfair notion that deep rooted problems can be fixed quickly.
Other than that I am excited to announce that I have an meeting with a potential new manager. My agent, Beverly Brock set it up for me. So regardless how it goes, it feels like progress! I love progress.
Oh, and a ‘cherry on the top’ moment today came from a Shadow & Act reader and mom of an actor that I gave a great review on. This is the thing, the actor is TERRIFIC. And I feel so good that the truth that I write, at times, can be appreciated.
I should back up a bit to this post. I did gain something from the show screening on last night. It was this guy that said he felt guilty about pursuing his dream career in LA, when his family back home in Memphis was not doing too well.
Ah ha! I connected to that man’s story. I never realized it until last night, but I feel guilty about living out my dream, and I have actually punished myself for it. It’s something I need to work through and I will work through it this year. Because I believe for years, I have felt guilty for this…
I think that’s it. I pray for an awesome end of my week.
