Part of my birthday celebration was finally seeing Gina Price-Bythewood, producer of Love & Basketball’s latest movie, Beyond the Lights! I am so glad I did. It was the perfect movie for me to see on my special day. Not only was perfect for me to see but I can guarantee you if you have not seen it already it will also be perfect for you, and here’s why:   
[NO SPOILERS…I promise!]

  1. It will reconnect you to your purpose in life
    Mark Twain once said, “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” This movie will motivate you to continue pursuing your purpose or to do whatever you can to find your truest, most authentic path in life.
  2. It will cause you to reflect on the woman you are and desire to be
    Beyond the Lights continuously reminded me of what it means to be a confident and empowered woman. As it is frequently said over and over in the movie, “I see you.” It will make you think about what you see inside of yourself and what others see inside of you. This one line alone will stick with you long after you leave the theater. It will literally nudge you at your inner desire to strengthen your own personal power as a woman which is one of the hardest things to do. It will inspire you to heal, evolve, and grow into the woman you desire to be just like the main character in the film.
  3. It will make you reconsider all the reasons you want to be in love
    The love story in this movie is everything but perfect, but it will make you reflect on all the reasons why you want a great love in your life. It will also remind you to focus on all of the RIGHT reasons why you want and need in the right man in your life to love, cherish, and value.

I walked out of the theater feeling blessed and highly favored for every single experience in my life that has helped me become the woman I am today. It also reassured me that the most difficult seasons in our lives and every single experience in our life is there to put us in the exact direction that our soul has always wanted us to go in. If we learn to truly follow our hearts and souls, then we will never be stirred wrong. As long we continue to follow everything we are not, we will never be happy.

COMMENT BELOW: I Want to Know:

  • Are you going to go see, Beyond the Lights? When?
  • If you already saw it, what did you think of the movie? How did it make you feel?
  • Do you think others really “see” who you really are? If not, why?
  • Do you really “see” the beauty and power in yourself? If not, why?

Don’t forget I am starting a new Confidence & Self-Love Class next week. Spots are limited, and this is the only time I will be offering this course this year. Women have already been signing up which warms my heart. Don’t be left out and certainly don’t let 2015 get here, and still be struggling withyour self-esteem, confidence, or self love. If you feel it is time you became the woman you desire to be, get the deets on the course here!
