" I AM blessed as an actress, model, composer, drummer, pianist, vocalist, saxophonist, and recording engineer to release gifts into the universe that uplift, deliver, and soothe the heart, mind, and soul.
It is indeed an honor when my gifts go into the universe shattering negative situations; especially, in times such as these. Therefore, who am I to take the gifts I've been given lightly.
No matter where my gifts are assigned to be used, I AM is with me. The majority of the people I AM assigned to are preoccupied with STUFF!!! FAVOR has positioned me where I AM supposed to be, according to my design, to deal with that STUFF!!!
I AM just a willing vessel."
