IF THE ELEVATOR TO SUCCESS IS BROKEN TAKE THE STAIRS
If you've found your way to the Wellness Window, consider yourself in receipt of a gift with this entry. Shared in its entirety is the 34 minute (November 16, 2017) TheGrio interview of actress, comedian, singer and activist Jenifer Lewis-compelling to the last second.
No different than an icy flame that stimulates while simultaneously soothing, Lewis massages your heart while calling you to be your best self-in spite of yourself and the current political and darkness that we are experiencing.
After viewing this interview and hanging on her every word (like I did), you won't be able to be anything but your best self ever again.
For those very few that have not heard of or seen Jenifer Lewis, 60, she is one of Hollywood's most familiar faces, with more than 300 appearances in film and television and was dubbed a "national treasure" by TV Guide.com and is known as The Mother of Black Hollywood, which is also the title of hercurrent book and memoir.
Her current role as mother and grandmother Ruby Johnson on the hit ABC show, Black-ish, earned her a nomination for the 2016 Critics Choice Award. In her characteristic unflinching style of delivery, she is raw and real and opens up about everything from losing legendary roles (including "Dreamgirls," "Orange Is The New Black", and "Getting On"), engaging in physical confrontations with fellow cast members, overcoming sexually transmitted diseases, substance abuse, and her struggle with mental illness.
Diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 1990, Jenifer says she deals with her mental health issues every day, but she’s happy with her life thanks to really loving herself.
(From TheGrio interview (11-16-2017): Jenifer Lewis says one must simply create their own life, ride the wave, come through the fire, find their passion, focus on it, get what they want, pursue happiness, get help for their addictions, and live.)
