JESUS TRUMPS SANTA: Christmas Came 3 Weeks Early This Year!
Hey there Richsters!
I can't even believe it, but it has already been three weeks since I got to manifest (and experience one of my dreams coming true)-- not only once, but twice!!!
If you follow me on Instagram then you're probably aware that I've been traveling back and forth between here and Baltimore a lot recently. Last month I was contacted by Baltimore City Hall to act as the on-air host for a digital segment that they were doing on the Mayor's Christmas Tree! I was stoked to be a part of the journey documenting the tree's move from Druid Hill Park to War Memorial Plaza (in front of City Hall). You can watch that video on the Baltimore City Hall Facebook Page (HERE).
As if that wasn't enough to make me do a praise dance, I was floored when I was asked to come back to shoot another segment. This time I was asked to cover the Mayor's Tree Lighting Ceremony and Annual Holiday Open House for Baltimore's public access channel (CharmTV). This was definitely a "Mama I made it" moment. My first official TV gig ya'll!!!!! I can run around just thinking about it. It's mind boggling. I would've never seen this for myself this year. But great is His faithfulness-- God is so good.
There were definitely a couple of "pinch me" moments and notable highlights: Some of my faves included interviewing the Mayor (Madame Mayor Catherine Pugh), and having a little chat with Santa (classic!). I also did a couple of celebrity interviews including speaking with Semi-finalist from NBC's "The Voice" Devon Fleming, and the super sweet Mrs. Maurette Brown Clark. It was such an eye-opening experience for me, especially given that it was literally just a glimpse into what it's like to be doing what I love most, but on a grander level. Not only that, but it was also a great chance to learn areas that I could afford to challenge myself. I picked up a couple of notes-to-self and things thatI'd like to work on as I'm looking to further myself in thiscaspect of my career and my on-air hosting skills. It's only up from here!
I just say/share all this to say that THIS is what it feels like to be living in your purpose with passion. These are opportunities that I literally prayed for, and as I've acknowledged in past posts-- The Lord is bringing them to fruition. In His way, and in His time. And thinking about how things are coming together, I can't wait to see how he delivers on other aspects of the vision that were put to paper and listed at the start of the year. Remember, we're believing for immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20)!
To catch a bit more about the evening's happenings you can catch some of my insta-story highlights, and follow Baltimore's CharmTV to view the segment once it goes live! Oh, and if you'd like to keep abreast with the various projects and things I have going on, please subscribe to my mailing list (I don't spam). :)
Now that I've shared some of my good news, I'd love to hear some of yours! How is God bringing some of your goals (set at the beginning of the year) to life as 2018 is coming to a close? Let's keep taking actionable steps towards them, and trusting him to make the impossible, possible! The year isn't over yet!
Until the next time, #LiveRi¢h and Happy Dream Chasing!
