Haven’t said too much today. Been absorbed in progressive thought, battling with an ambitious spirit that hungers for that new level. Seems life is filled with moments like those. Something on my mind that I thought I’d write about. A beautiful and talented young actress by the name of, Maia Campbell, who played one of the characters on the short-live sitcom, “In the House,” that also stared rapper-actor, LL Cool J, and Choreographer/Actress/Dancer/Producer, Debbie Allen, hit some stumbling blocks along the road sometime after the sitcom ended.
Well, somebody decided to record and post on line, a moment during this particular time in her life.
I refuse to even post this video and wish someone would take it off line.
I’m overjoyed that this story does have an illuminating light that burned away all of that darkness. She seems to be doing quite well these days, and I celebrate her accomplishments and life in this post that I call, “Twinkle in an Eye.”
I suppose what saddens me sometimes is that, many times, exploitation and ridicule are used to get a quick laugh. Finger-pointing and condemnation are also often used instead of, the having of, compassion and a sincere concern to understand, why?
Why is that person going through this?
What kind word might I say to lift them up?
I’ll smile rather than frown in disgust because…
this one smile might let them know that there are people who care.
I pray that she continues to grow in strength, and maintains all the positive steps that she has made on that never-ending road to recovery.
She’s looking as beautiful as ever now.
It’s really important that we surround ourselves with people who are really for us. You’ll know them because, even when you make mistakes, they never leave your side. They might even use a little tough love, but one thing they’ll never do, is put you down and turn their backs on you.
Cherish those you love, and those who love you, because life is but a span of time than can be as brief as the twinkle in an eye.
