There's nothing like a rude awakening to get you "woke" and remind you to live a life you actually love.
Stepping out of my struggle was an uncomfortable action but it was more uncomfortable and devastating to be unhappy with my life when I knew I was destined for more.
I remember my life-changing moment as the moment that created a shift in my heart from one of despair to one of strength, confidence, and self-love and this is the story that brought me here to you...
But first, I'd like to confess something to you. Despite what impression of me you've seen in the online world, or maybe we've met in person, I wasn't always the woman you've been getting to know. The truth is, I wasn't nearly as confident as I am today.
In fact, I spent many years not realizing my worth, not feeling beautiful, and not knowing how to snap out of my patterns of living an "O.K" life. I was practically a pro at "faking the funk". Maybe you can relate...On the exterior you look happy, put together, and maybe people think you're "successful" when really you're struggling to find a man, make enough money to have a decent life, be happy at your job, or even just love yourself. I know I was once that person. I was a Single Millennial Black woman wondering how I could be happy in what I felt was such a boring effed up world. I spent 5 days a week, 8 hours a day, just like you did or still do, in a sea of cubicles that sucked the fun out of my day, controlled my time and labeled my "works worth" at only $17/hour. I believe in a lot of things but living like this for the next 40 years was nothing I could fathom I was destined for. I thought, "Aint nobody got time for that!"
And that was that! I quit my job and became an Actress. Nope, I'm not kidding! I put on my Confident Big Girl pants and I acted my way from NYC to Hollywoooood, Hollywood citayyy. I had an agent and everything. I shared scenes with James Franco, Josh Duhamel, Naturi Naughton, & La La Anthony to name a few. But one year into this new adventure I realized something. I realized I became an actress to tell stories and make an influence. The problem was I wasn't telling my stories, and I didn't think this would happen, but that started to bother me. I knew my life experiences as Kelley Green could help me influence way more women than as a character on TV.
On Thanksgiving day of 2014, I came back to NYC and moved in with my parents. I figured it was time to face reality and get a "real" job. I applied for dozens of jobs but couldn’t even get an interview because I guess being “out of work” for 1.5 years to pursue acting didn't make me a good candidate. I fell into a slump after this. I started to believe I had ruined my life because I was foolish enough to chase what I thought was a dream.
The quickest resort I had to start earning an income was babysitting. I was a babysitter for families in gorgeous million dollar new york city homes and apartments with elevators that lead directly into their apartment when I got off. You know, just like on the tv show, "Power." These were the homes I dreamt of living in. I felt pitiful because I didn't feel at all close to having the financial success as the people I was babysitting for.
During all of this pity, I lost 3 family members within 6 months. It felt like every other month I was losing a cousin and then my Step Grandfather. It's accurate to say I became a miserable mess. I was so depressed I spent Halloween alone, in bed, in the dark while my friends were out celebrating and were unaware I was home crying in bed wondering why I got to live even though I felt I wasn't contributing much to society.
I had hit rock bottom.
As I laid in bed on Halloween night, I thought about my cousin Darius who was my age when he passed away and how he was providing so much to the world. I knew I wasn't giving it my all but despite all of these experiences I still had a fire in me. It was a small ember at this point but it was still lit. I still believed I was meant to live a life of purpose and passion and a lifestyle that gave me the freedom to travel, the ability to make lots of money, and the means to make an impact, on my terms.
So I said...
"F’ This Mediocre Mess! "
I’m going to do whatever it takes to make a difference in this world so I can be happy and proud of myself! I shifted from the darkness to the light and little by little I pulled myself from the depths of despair in order to show other struggling women how to do the same. I no longer fake the funk, I no longer place myself in negative situations, and I no longer live from a place of self-doubt. Instead I've been growing an amazing tribe of women, I've been speaking at women's empowerment events, and published my first book "perfectly imperfect" to name a few up-levels! I absolutely love myself and this transformation has brought me the happiness I've been searching for, for years.
