“Wisdom means to choose now what will make sense later. I am learning everyday to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be, to inspire me and not terrify me.”
“I just want to say this. I love being a woman. I love playing a woman. I love being a whole and full wom
an. I am more than my parts, and we all are. And we all, as women, need to continue to change our gaze from how we are seen to how we are seeing. We are full and beautiful women. And let us live in that.”
“It was when I realized I needed to stop trying to be somebody else and be myself, I actually started to own, accept and love what I had.”
“One of the things I’ve realized is how portable God is. No really, He’s everywhere!”
“I was very shy growing up. My shyness manifested as a big personality, as opposed to the wallflower personality. It’s been a journey getting comfortable in my skin. I’ve worked on trying to find the authentic balance between the bravado of my personality that was sort of a defense and the truth within my bigness.”
Gotta Love Tracee Ellis Ross!
