Dear Black Actress,

One of the acting principles that I’m sure you are familiar with is that “YOU ARE ENOUGH”. I’ve had the privilege of being taught by some amazing people in the industry who constantly reinforce this message. And as we know the career path we have chosen includes a fair amount of rejection and obstacles. Sometimes instead of acknowledging the rejection we internalize the experience and label ourselves “REJECT”.

The pursuit isn’t easy, not mention the moments when you feel the opposite of what you’ve been taught and start to question if you are enough and the voices in your head start saying “You are NOT that great, you need to be more…”, “your audition was sh** today”, there are other actors who are far more talented than you”, “you really f***ed up on set just now”,“YOURE NOT ENOUGH!”

I don’t mean to go against or contradict  the teachings of “You are enough” because… You ARE enough, but sometimes there are moments when I believe the lies in my head and need access to a higher power, to believe in something outside myself. Call it  Universe, Source, God, Love –   what have you, all I know is I need something outside myself to both keep me grounded and to continue to elevate me, to honor me and to humble me, to keep me from fear and to keep me curious enough to live lovingly both in my career and social life.

Wether you identify with being a spiritual or religious person, I’m sure you can identify with the “maybe I’m not enough” moments in life, so as a spiritual woman of faith and fellow Black Actress I’ve gathered a few videos that I hope will restore, refresh and inspire your faith in yourself.

“A lonely day is God’s way of saying that he wants to spend some quality time with you.” ~Criss Jami

“Now the God of hope fill you with joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost” ~Romans 15:13

Stay blessed!

Lots of love,

Charlie Cakes
