I’ve been blessed with another role and finding the essence of the character is a process I never want to stop experiencing. Digging deep within to find the connection and truth, the needs, the flaws, the persona and becoming it. I want to wake up and work everyday in environments that understand the value of the creative industries. To act in roles that are Universal. These goals are closer than we think when we remove limiting beliefs.
We spend what sometimes can feel like a long time pursuing our dreams. Timing, Preparation and Dedication~Steady your pace. Ready yourself. Master your craft.
Constantly asking my higher self to guide this and then I get to Work!
don’t ever stop dreaming ......more importantly .....don’t ever stop doing
Thank you to Kirk Baltz @kirk.baltz for being the most amazing acting coach and friend to this little island girl 🖤
I woke up today with an intention. To provide a service with a difference. I saw a TED TALK that echoed that we all have gifts to share and need to ACT on it. Please share 🙏🏾 We take for granted every day that we are more than capable of giving back to our communities in more ways than we actualize.
Having a daughter of my own, now 19, who has always benefited from alternative learning environments and personalized lessons whilst navigating her way through the education system, it made sense to share some of this knowledge. As an actor and creative writer it’s natural that I couple this, with my 19yrs of experience as a mother. Finding teachers who were willing to extend themselves beyond a curriculum and systematic approach to learning ushered me into this space. I in turn tutored children during/after college and again last year at my aunt’s after school club in London, teaching primary school subject areas, and found that using Drama to shift many of them out of inhibition, fear and and unwillingness to participate, was so helpful.
I don’t need anyone to confirm that for me, creativity blossoms young minds. I can say for sure that if we afford our children an environment of safety and love with healthier practices and open communication, these simple shifts will help us change the world.
From December I will be starting lessons for parents who want to take advantage of Home work club till school closes and beyond that into the holidays for a little healthy revision (not overload), some mindfulness, some meditation and a little old fashioned reading, chatting and time out to hear what’s on their minds. We get busy as parents and they have lots to share.
Feel free to pass this flyer on to any friends and family and if they want to have a chat with me, we can. I know this is the beginning of a beautiful shift in the landscape of my life and our beautiful younger generation of tomorrow. Imagine what can blossom when the I becomes WE as a community of creatives and we start incorporating all our talents towards this generation’s development.
Just know I will soon be calling on all of you to join me 😊🖤🌹 Live Love and Love Life ~ Cez

I think to move your body to music in breath, is to allow a loving interaction and understanding with self~when I need to drop into a vibration of pure positive energy and inspiration, Midnite 'Unpolished' album will never fail, no matter where you're from, what language you speak, what social space you think you occupy, it will shake you to your core, empty you and fill you up with powerful reality that can only humble you with LOVE❤️ forever grateful to @thevisualartist911 for being the person that introduced me to Midnite years ago, to meet souls so powerful and giving, I will note as a transformative moment.
and I cannot forget @ronnie_turf_jack ☺️ for years of commitment to this band’s music reaching souls for their healing 🙏🏾 grateful for you also Ronnie
The model of LOVE that represents to me what I require. It’s beautiful to see this example by two of the most truthful BLACK role models currently existing in this very twisted world where unorthodox approaches are demonized and myopic societal moralization pushes us into boxes!
Everyone will have a different idea of what is right for them and within that space is where we will thrive and continue becoming our best version of ourselves. I want this type of love for everyone. This egoless sharing has surely given way for many to now step into a new thought process~acceptance and the ability to BE with those that we say we truly love and honor.
Polygamous union at 22-my first trial, Alhamdulillah for that experience, the love I found can never be compared EVER. Second trial exposed painful awakenings and unyielding truths about my life, my pain and childhood traumas-we found infinite love and lessons.
Third time will be the charm~to be met in my truth
Repost from @jadapinkettsmith - Because my happiness did not fit in the norm or even the construct I created around myself... my fear kept me stuck... for years. It takes COURAGE to be happy. Our courage is something we have to build one day at a time. These last 7 years... I’ve been healing and building the courage to be more... true and unapologetic for building a life that’s more suitable to who and what I truly am. My self love has taught me that my life and relationships need not look like anyone else’s. We are all unique. I’ve never believed life is suppose to be made in a cookie cut fashion. The creation of one’s life is their own personal masterpiece✨ I’m wishing you all courage, strength and love to build the life that fits YOU. Your unique masterpiece. Anyone that would deny you your happiness and/or shame you for what makes you happy is a person who is afraid to muster the strength to have their own meaning of happiness. Show those people compassion in the same way we must show compassion to our own fears. With that self love and care fear is transformed into courage. The very courage that eventually... steps us into our freedom.
Here’s to the journey ✨ @redtabletalk #RedTableTal
I sent this to a few of you this morning and it makes me hopeful, it was widely understood and also some mis understood, but both positions echo to me that we are making waves of change when we commit to more conversations that need to be had, the way we think and act in our little oligarchy has to change. So let’s take a positive approach to it all
Change is happening with every individual acknowledging their position of privilege and exercising their ability to come out of comfort zones, relinquishing defensive stances and support the movements revolutionizing the world.
The future is bright ☺️ #SheCez#Privilege#LetsTalkMore#inclusivity
Everyday I’m grateful for individuals who champion recognition of the purposed thinking that needs to be employed, in order for us to shift mindsets and attitudes in our social conditioning. To be less reactive and more proactive. These are the moments I truly appreciate social media - how it provides an open door to walk into conversations of necessity- this appreciation of community and discourse, less focus on self indulgence and self promotion, and an inclusion and promotion of REAL POSITIVITY☺️ As much as there is chaos in the world, thank goodness there is also a wide immersive awakening and practice of consciousness bubbling over -Aya

I believe in positivity, but I’m concerned with the way that people are using it to create distance b/w themselves and real world events.
A few months ago, I was kicking it at dinner with these cool folks. I met a dude that night and we had a solid debate of sorts.
He said that he didn’t engage in politics too heavy b/c it felt negative to him and he needed more positivity in his life.
I get that. Doing this work can feel overwhelming and impossible. Hell, watching the news is an endless cycle of crisis and despondency and bias. But there are so many ways to be informed.
I pushed back on his framing of positivity as one that was a manufactured product of capitalism. A mainstay American narrative is the idea that ‘self’ is the most important person; it’s why there is an endless stream of self-help/improvement materials out there. Capitalism requires prioritizing individualism above all else.
This narrative of ‘positivity’ leads to passivity; one where we pretend we don’t know what is happening around us to preserve our positive attitudes. But passivity is just as dangerous as overt hatred.
Real positivity is hard work. It is bringing that energy into the places and to the people that need it most. Positivity is a practice. Positivity is in the actions we take to leverage change, not just in our relationship to self. Be positive, but don’t be passive. Own your place in this world by taking responsibility for it and it’s inhabitants; this is positivity in action.
