Me Like just this conversation alone and just like reading your story it doesn't surprise me that you were able to push through heaven ten million dollars student while Mike at all because like there's definitely like a spirit in hustle nature that you have to have How can you take care of yourself because being like that high energy and having that drive sounds really draining exhausting. I just put myself on a ten PM I must be in bed. I was on Oh my God. I- bedtime. Exactly. I was going to bed at three am and it was bad and it wasn't healthy so that because I wake up earlier right and I feel alive and I go for a long walk now in the morning I, make sure I have I'm not a big breakfast person but I make sure I have this. Meal that I may and I make sure that I I take. No. Bats. Sitting down soaking baths, not disliking no soaking baths, Lang whatever amount of money you have like it is so important take a second for yourself I know. People have a lot of responsibilities. But if you don't care for yourself, you really can't care for anybody else like you can't do anything else let alone hear how people. Yeah and you're working in a state of just going all the time and I understand that mentality because I had to do it and people have to do it and my mom had to do it but she had our nights out you know where she went out and I was like what? What is this? What is this? What are you wearing? What's going? Right exactly I feel that in myself, I don't even ask you. Guess. What about moments where like you're like in your head and you have just like not feeling confident gray like you can do it or just like kind of doubting up there is there a pep talk that you give yourself in those moments you just kind of kind of didn't feel it until it goes away. Yeah I have those probably once a month and then all one. Jealous. A. Habit I have strong. Yes. Wrongs and stations of like everything is not working. You know nobody likes me. It's like these strong sensations of like. Oh, like like just like not feeling worthy of the life wherever you are that you create your for yourself for the job that you actually got more excited to have it when I got it. Like you just feel like everything's falling apart. And nothing is working and nobody likes you and just all these things and it's like a wave. It's like a deep wave and if I don't get up and move like I found myself if I don't. Exercise or walkout or walk around or listening on td Jakes or something right he gives me my pep talk I'm like I I ain't got it. Got It. You don't hang outsourcing is what my therapist taught me when you ain't got it. Somebody else done a thing that my therapist told me about the little voicing ahead that like super like fuss me up in a good way. She was like, well, what do you think voices like trying to get you to Judas just want you to fail does just want you to just like what I was like. Well, I think is keeping me safe from. Things that I'm scared of and She was like what if you say to the voice? You know I see what you're trying to. You're trying to help me. Thank you. But I got it and I was just laying that were Oh, you can do that. Oh my gosh I tried it and it went at least once I need to practice it but yeah is. I'm GONNA use that. Let me know how. I see what you're saying but no, right yes I you're now but. They are coming voices like not negative. It is trying to put there's into epic. There's a difference between intuition and then negative thoughts acting your brain and overwhelming you. So we all know we need to listen to intuition but sometimes, I'm talking more about like the negative like strata demon right I'll just. Got, you cannot stay you might leave. Okay. Must speaking of demons in eighties and such I have a question for you right or how hypothetical situation for you. So yeah, let's say that said Deity is like We're going to have to Redo the whole college period of Your Life, right? Okay. But I will let you either do it the way that you're already did and drop out of school or you'll be able to afford to stay in college which would you choose Oh man that's hard because I do WanNa, Finish College you know what I mean like I always am unanswered by people who have went to college especially like a a stoically black university and I'm like. I wish I went to Howard or spelman are one of these things and that experience and the amount the beautiful minds that you're surrounded with. But I honestly would rather relive my life because it created such a force for me like I. Don't feel that way because of the stuff that has come to me feel that way because I feel strong. Inside like Neil, I can make real decisions about my life for my child. I feel like I can really teach something I feel like I have stuff to give right right and so I I would relive all of it because I wouldn't change a thing you would not change one person I dated one person I just had a romp with you know. One person I just kissed in a club that I. Whatever I wouldn't change not having furniture not being able to pay rent being anxious I just feel like those things created who I am and it just made me for a stronger person and and more equipped to like talk to L. About. What's necessary in Life I had a feeling that you say that but yeah. I mean, I'm it helps me to hear people say that they would do the heart shit all over again because it kind of helps me get through hearts it like tomorrow you know just like knowing that there are people who can make appreciate all the tough shit that they've gone through because of what they got from it. Always, helps you keep going so well, it makes you feel less alone. Yeah. Right. Head. Less alone. At one more question this is a bit of advice for someone who is not me at all My name is tracey. This is my friend Stacy I. Get? It. So you definitely know and understand what it takes to push through tough situations and how hard it can be to do though, and so my friends safety you know she's got a couple of career curve balls throw natter you know which happens in life. But when this happens to stacey, she kinda gets a little discouraged and you know it's just Kinda hard for her to just like get back up get back on the horse and do it again especially because a lot of times when you fail hold on quality feel like you fail you lose. In your ability to keep yourself safe into like push yourself through things I'm at least this is what safety says. So the question is, what advice would you give her to keep pushing forward? Even though everything in her body is an Sich are black as down down do something else like just just it's an option you you can sit down, sit down what would you tell her I would tell her. What is what is the voice telling her to sit down and do as a telling her to sit down and rethink her plan? Right, is it telling her to sit down and just don't follow her dream.

Feel generous when I see that there's a need and I felt like, why isn't anybody fulfilling it like the idea of being proactive? That's Yeah Yeah. So we take, what does your perfect day look like? Oh Man My perfect day is waking up on a beach. What time I want the whole thing. Okay. So waking up in. A room facing the beach straight I'm basing the water here the ocean. The wind like the ocean air is like coming in out wake up I order like pancakes in Bacon maybe some fruit some Orange Juice Sarah? Yes. They like artificial kind. I don't mean to be the edge mental. Yes. We're done I'm sorry. Kinda they get like the one from wholefoods whatever that one is not like the Corn Syrup with additives you go to the tree I go to the trees take my little hammer. Cords their stuff. I heard about that. Now is Yummy but then I got more expansive in my by out just wanting to be more healthy. You're right though it's that comes down to what you grew up with. It's true man what's accessible? Yes. Like I grew up with best foods mayonnaise and I am such a royalist. See I with Helman's and when I came out here, I'm like, what is this? And then waking up and then maybe doing a prayer in meditation and walking at this new thing about walking in. So I walk every day and listened to a podcast and read a book sitting on the beach eat lunch I like to chill like when I go on vacation, my fiance loves to like do things he's adventurous and he's like let's go I'll plan everything and I'm like dude, all I wanNA do is sit right here and do nothing read a book. But Teacup is that because? You have a three and a half year old or have you always been that way? Yes, it is. I have a three and a half year old and also I'm always literally at a meeting pitching something my brain is always on but before pre all this I like hiked through Nepal I went to Sweden for three as just because at my friend relate, let's go. So then how has this experience been prio like have you been able to slow down your brain are how do you? Know hasn't been very frustrating than in like where do I focus my energy when we're confined, it hasn't been frustrated because I feel like work has given me an outlet to like have some sort of structure in doing something you know and like actually executing some things which has been great with the great balances like I am never home this much. So when it first started, it was like you're staying home again you're here like more and then it became like normal. So it's like both I can do both. It's like there's no driving time. There's no commuting. So it's like that cuts out aloud time. You know once I'm done with all the stuff I. Go see my child and we're spending time together now it still exhausting because then I have to like cut myself in many pieces of like okay. Just finish work all day. Now you gotta go and give my daughter, and then after she goes to bed, you know my fiancee wants to like be next to me talk and I'm like I don't WanNa talk anymore unfortunately, he gets like the end of the stick where it's just like I'm tired like the peace with you. It's just like not talking is amazing. You know and I had to kind of train myself also to. He to be given something like he needs nurturing to in he needs love and he needs to speak in all those things. So it's just trying to balance it. You know I don't know how much is balanced but yet trying to figure it all out I'm so with you and I haven't and I don't know if I will I don't either and it's going to be balanced ever. Yeah. For me it's felt like almost getting off of the hamster wheel. Go through days where it's like. Well, what's it all for? Like? We're working on these various projects that I'm really excited about sometimes. Yeah, and then I'll go through dislike cliff of I'm just like diving down like well, what if this never ends? Can we live right and so it feels like, is there pointlessness to ambition right now? Oh, to go through those dark things but then I'm also like this kind of an amazing time my family. Is Safe Yeah we are fortunate enough to have resource yet. I spent more time with people that you know with four people betting ever that I really fuck you love. Yeah, I. Do believe that however we come out of this.

I thought I was in that movie from the original as. In. I was dancing are. Elements like mom that was good. He isn't there a lot of the cooking was that the style is a lot of book kicking. There's a lot of putting in just A. Jerking, right. It's mostly like below the knees. It's like railing your dress a little bit took. Him Props. Havoc. Crazy person l loved it. Okay. What does a trait you dislike in others? There's a few people who are pretentious in unkind. And only nice people who seemingly only matters in that space I? Love that because it's so common in our industry Oh my God, how do you trust somebody? WHO's like? That was great. That was great. That was great but then My experienced. If they've said, you know that wasn't so great. I'm like I don't WanNa work with you anymore goodbye. Like we call to. The duplicity. I guess it's two different types of things like I think we're tired to things like if you're talking about like director who's not telling you the truth about what you're doing. Then that's not a good director because you're gonNA. Crazy. So hopefully, they're telling you that let's retake that in there have been times where directors have said how about we try it this way and I'm like oh great. You know let's do that but makes sense sure I don't think bathroom kind but I don't like when this happens in the industry where you're at a party or you know somebody or you see somebody and they're not kind or you're not important enough. To be who they are around you or to be nice. You're so right. I can't stand when people are just not kind people like it doesn't take anything to be kind. You know even if you're tired it's like, Hey, they see you whatever it doesn't have to be a long conversation like I was telling you like even in what's your number? You know there were people who were just not nice and you can tell who they were nice to and they weren't nice to you. You you know what I mean, and it was just like, Oh okay. I see you but it's always interesting when the thing they thought was gonNA do whatever for their careers doesn't happen but the thing is like you just have to be kind regardless of where your career is completely. Okay. What does a trait you disliking yourself? ooh, that's a good one. I think sometimes questioning my instinct you know like questioning what my gut like was the right thing to do even if it's For a moment or can I do it? Can I push this four just questioning myself I think or allowing other people's questions to make me I. Think it's good that people questioned you because it makes you analyze in really figure out why you WanNa do something. But when they questioned me to the point where they made me feel like I can't do it and then I question my first reaction of thought could dad making me question myself and then me actually be in like. Maybe, I can't do it. Yeah. Giving people my power really I wish I could trust my instinct all the time I know that I might be a real fucking housing. I mean I feel like you've got is usually right. At the time I, think you're right like ninety nine point nine percent of the. Yeah. Okay. To whom would you most like to apologize on why Oh my God In. My adult years. I'd like to apologize to everybody I've ever slide it. And if I did it not if they felt that way Tika so understand because I hate the idea that somebody would have had a very minor interaction but they recognize me and it became something much larger in their head without my intention at all way, I would hate that their perception of me or if they had liked me before maybe they wouldn't you know. But I also think that it's really an exhausting way to live to I. Don't know if you feel that way Oh God walking around not yet. That's exhausting. I always try to say I think the best about people like trying not. To go straight to they did this to me on purpose or you know they treated me like that on purpose like I do try to say, well, you know money think the best of this person rather than go straight to the negative part right. But that's so hard to remember having minor interactions with the celebrities and any little thing but they ordered what they were doing with their per like every single thing was so seared into my brain. Oh, see took it all to heart. Well, just the idea that if I inadvertently like didn't hold the door open for you know the old man, the cane. All? You know I be like Shit Bitch. For any more I'm going to write. I know now everybody's ready about their lights liberty interaction. He's. He wasn't even that hurt. Guys, his caned Levin even real yeah. Like Oh and I could tell him was moving faster. Towards me. Yeah. I mean even just people in our industry and you know listen even me talking about people being unkind like I.

"GonNa be like, wait you behold Bush. Yet I think I was always kinda like the mom and then like I had. This guy who is always the dad you know I never got to play with boys like that of the I played. One boy there. You're the MOM and dad. Yeah We're GONNA go kids mommy. Don't worry. Everything's okay. Behind Blizzard. Okay. So what was your first boss? Oh, okay, I worked at a movie theater. He was great because I was a really good employees. It's crazy 'cause when you're raised by a single mom at first and then I had my Stepdad come on when I was ten Assam struggle so much. It went from struggling to like she got rave like moved up in her job, and so then life changed, and then she got remarried and then we moved to the burbs and so see my mom struggle like made me a really hard worker and grateful for every opportunity 'cause I always knew this is not where I'm staying. So when I was like popping popcorn in the back as a concession girl I always like, do you WanNa large for quarter more you know like I always up sold my drawer material was always the right amount of cash and so I feel like, I'm a good employee like I worked at honeybaked ham sold a lot of Hams during seasonal. Kind tell you why you are not a good employee I can see it. So clearly, why because if you're like a mid level manager? And you're like, I'm pretty content with my life your. God. Yeah. Well, all right sales are up or people's into Laker. People. The fuck. My boss. You're just like sneaking up from behind. But as we should know, here's the thing I know I never wanted to be a manager there I'm like, no I'm here to just get my cash and go like I am going on the are to do to take. Like I don't want your job don't worry I was so focused on me and like what I wanted to do, that would turn the boat left. I'll take you took my visualization completely incorrectly I was like okay. So if I'm like a production company, let's say one hundred billion dollars and I wanted to offer you to income work for me or whatever they get some point eventually I would like to think I would be smart enough to recognize that you were taking over. Like. No No. Like at the best of ways I love that okay. Who has influenced your career the most it depends at what point my life. Okay. Can I give you age? Let's say like fifteen to seventeen. Oh, my God, it's like a weird mixture of like I was a girl who was like a latchkey kid but also had to play outside but also watch Donna Jackson Rhythm Nation VHS whatever she's doing i WanNa do I don't know what that is. I. Don't know how to get there. I'm a girl from Queens by way of long, island so. That, and then my mom to be honest in I know that's like the answer that probably everybody gives but look, she didn't understand this business at all. She's like I don't know what you're doing but you need a 401k and you need a real nine five and you need to work and you need consistent money and all that stuff but which she did teach me like to never give up on myself because she was doing it for so long by herself and like raising US five kids and. She just continued you. She marched on not only for us but for her you know and I just feel like if my mom did it with way less resources than I have in life, I owe it to myself too big for whatever I wanNA do take a wet age order are you I have two older sisters and then I have an older brother and then comes me and then I have a younger brother who's in his early thirties and then I have another little brother so I'm like in the middle I don't know too many like in the middle's but I know a lot of youngest like I am not middle always hold up the way to the world. Yeah. On both ends I believe that parents are middle's yeah. Do you have any siblings I have an older brother it just you you yeah and I love him love him for Ocean Sleep. But man, he was a big kid we had a contentious childhood but he's been on the podcast we've talked about are. Things. Okay what is the best or worst advice you've ever been given the best advice probably for my mom I remember coming out of this class in this is why I was already like a working actor, but somebody would like Oh. Maybe you should go take acting class everybody goes and takes it in named all these artists and stuff and I like I have the job in. Doing the work I don't know what you want me to do to elevate. So I was told to go take this class and it's one of those classes that like break you down in the bill you up. Oh, boy. Yeah. It makes you feel like you're not a good actor at all and so I walked out of class and I called my mom and I go. Back like should I be doing this? Like should I be acting? She goes first of all, you know. Keeping me throughout the bones meaning take the good things out of it. But like leave the stuff, you just don't need like you. You know what? I mean like who cares doesn't do anything for you. It doesn't contribute to you and not listening to everybody I love the idea of stop listening to everybody. I guess I don't know if there's a philosophy behind like young people should get prepared for a ton of rejection, which is sorta believe in that. But at the same time it, how are you supposed to gauge at all if you're good because I went through? A similar deal feels like you have to get used to the idea of rejection. Yeah. I mean I feel like you got to somehow have some kind of confidence. Know until you start booking job you don't know but then you also realize like sometimes booking a job it doesn't mean you're good. For anybody like there are a ton of people who are book a lot of jobs in new are super famous and I'm like I don't know how I don't know her grass you did it.

"Okay I swore to myself. I'm knockin start, off by saying. Beautiful. But fuck you do. Thanks Moma. Way. I have to tell you though do you remember doing what's your number? Yes. Okay. So you have always been so nice even to the people who were number two, number three, number four, number five, call she which for listeners if you don't know what that means like number one means like you're the top after a show number two is just as important but you never made me feel like. unwanted. Welcoming. Even though you have so much on your plate to get that is such a nice compliment because I was just telling Michael. My fiance are worry the Thika Remembers what your number because I felt like having done house bunny and. A Lotta ladies, we never get to work with each other. But I was so honored that you and our other ladies were part of this project and I'm not saying that. This is one of my flaws as being like overly sentimental out of the. And adding that such a a valuable trade of yours seriously the in that was the thing that I was worried about. I was like I couldn't gauge if everybody felt supported in the way that I wanted them to listen I wasn't there very long but like from what I saw and the way I felt like Maya. Angelou says you remember how people treat you and I, have the utmost respect for you you were so completely nice and genuine, and you had a lot to do you're in every scene you know and so I really wanted to say that because I never got to talk to you after that tickets really means a lot to me because I think that. I was like, okay. I have to. The next imagine have to get my hair on. If into that readdress anymore. I hope the ladies are happy because I'm so glad. You know what I mean your producer like you know that Shit, I know and I just think if you're nice to people generally consistent where people are like, no, she's a cool person. She's Super Nice. That's who you are ticket. Both thank you and thank you for doing this today. Of course and I truly I was like don't tell her szucs. Beautiful. Don't do it to do it. I love it. I liked the idea of changing dialogue between women where it's like Oh. We're so focused on how we look in doing a podcast and I, did put on scary for you open up for you well. It looks great. I'll take all the compliments. I'll take it because I feel like women can do more than one thing at the same time we can walk and chew, Gum. So not only can you be beautiful but you'd be smart and hold a conversation right so I'll take an and I just turned forty so buck. Yeah. I was thinking also as you talk a lot about on your podcast about raising your daughter. So my son's about to turn eight and he's at this phase where he'll snuggle with me at night like when he sleepy or if he's like skin Disney or something like that but I'm so used to just like touching his head putting socks on him or he'll kick me or who like Swat me. So I tried to explain to him, I'm used to touching you your whole life I'm used to having to do all of these things. So in order to hurry things along when we have to go to the store and I need you to put your shoes and socks on and get your coat on I'm used to manhandling you. And of course that absorbed very deeply within him, he's like don't touch me anymore Jane. Stop it I think your daughter must be at that age where it's like, oh, she still needs a lot of the physical contact all the time, but she is getting into that place where she'll start to do those like, no, my own physical independence only way. Now I know how to do that is to like jerk, my foot in your general direction, right? Right Right No, my daughter is definitely at that. Phase where I overly kiss her I. Hug on her I just want her to know. She still loved I. Feel like if you feel your kid up at home, I mean eventually, she'll go searching somewhere else for something else that she needs. But I feel like at least let me bill her tank but my daughter is seriously like mob that's enough I keep kissing her and she's like no more no more. You don't anywhere and I'm like. I love you. She's like, okay. Let me watch frozen please. You know yes in. Like trying to put on a sock or something I don't up the kicking thing like I wanna be like Dude, kick me. Yeah and the other day I tried to explain to like listen we have to work this out. You know I I'm used to touching you and changing your diaper, believe it or not you used to wear a diaper. Don't do it. I mean I think it's your right to be like dude, put the down pay attention right now for two seconds like La is literally it's almost like butterflies in be like she just does not mention she's still have and she's like not moving where I need to we need to go. So you can still like play tricks with her. You can be like, Hey, L. Look over here. Look at this look at all my gosh. I. Think There's a butterfly or whatever. Just leads to be scared. She loves. Monster, she likes that voice teasing. This is how we have to like maneuver the rest of our lives playing games. Are you in La I am in La when I was working on what's your number I? Think that's the lifted New York I've moved to La like four years ago and I love California I just love and we wait. Yeah you are an incredibly positive person I think according to your bio but. But to get can you? Think of three things that annoy about Los. Angeles. Yeah I think one of the things is like the people who are from California who act like they're the bee's knees like they give California a bad name I feel like people who are actually from here are always the sweetest most down to Earth people but always people who are coming here who feel like they have to be something else in so everybody kinda carries this. You know like Jesse Jackson said you are somebody yes but you don't have to act like a pretentious blood hole. The second thing. Oh my gosh when you're eating out. And everybody looks at the door. Everytime it opened. Oh. Yes. Yeah. 'cause they're like Brad Pitt Comey is fairest. Mini. That's annoying and then third thing is. I don't have a third thing but right now those are the top two that are probably the most annoying when I moved to Los Angeles from Washington State. I couldn't believe how just geographically unattractive it was and I know you come from New York and like when you arrive in New York, you're like what is this story and when you arrive in La you're like. The city engineers was the no planning department because this is like thousands of miles of grotesque. You're like blind over smog or whatever, but I really loved Baja fresh. I really loved like this general sense of optimism that I totally mistrusted. Yes. I was like, what do you mean things are great like started.

A with women who are unknown underserved communities because a lot of the times. choices are taken out of their hands, or they don't know about them and decisions are made so quickly that they don't even have to. You're already in a space east of just dizziness in like what the Hell is this? Let alone if you have complications so bats, what the Dula therefore to be with you to walk you through it to a hold on a second. This is what she wanted to do. You know to make sure your concerns are are met, and and so I think they're amazing. I think duly are incredible, and and we're grateful that you are an ally. Thank you. Guys are very important I. Think you know everybody has a hand in helping so? And I think in terms of being an ally for black MOMS right. One of the things one I think that's important work because we are disproportionately impacted because of a lot of systematic. sort of imbalance in equities from healthcare to You know an employment, but. In those are real topics that you know we're tackling. And there were having substantive conversations with but you know for us the empowering thing for us. As MOMS before we were moms while we are now MOMS is really showing a spectrum demonstrating a spectrum, right answers and them pathways to just become a parent, but to pair right and so i. I think that there's this default when someone says. How can I you know connect with Black Moms? It's it's generally the first. The default is from position of a right like Oh, my because the picture of Black Motherhood is is one of suffering, and and not that that's not a noble costume to give a Ham, but we actually wanted to provide. Provide a very aspirational and supportive community that says yeah, regardless of socio economic editions now an antique and I both come from You know working class to the poor families like you know both of our our moms at a point where single moms so so we get, that could be a very real reality, but that's also. We also have very different realities. Realities right now. We're both in very healthy partner. Two Parent Household You know we've been been very fortunate on sort of you know. The the socio economic had aware of different levels of privilege at every level regardless of levels of privilege privilege every privilege. Every mom deserves sweetness right now. We wanted to make sure that we gave an invitation to moms. MOMS of color to whom the invitation is not extended to live. SPEEDER lies Tika talks a lot about not just surviving motherhood, but thriving in it right? You say it shouldn't just be door. It should be enjoyed in, so we want open at that spectrum up so when we talk about you know whether it's something as simple as how to take a vacation. We try to make sure that there's an access point. No matter if. If that vacation at the station in your exploring your local neighborhoods to you know if you're traveling around the world whenever we can do that again, you know if we're talking about self camp pampering, you know. What does it look like if you're doing that? In a really opulent way of what does it mean to take five wherever you are, you know and and focus on at a farm yourself and I think when it comes to. The whole concept of the dual a lot of the times for us. It's even explain that that's an option is one of the first people that I hadn't had a Dula. She explained a lot to me about what the process was. She told me I was one of the first folks who she knew. WHO BLACK MOMS WHO throws eggs, embryos I just think even the conversation in a you having us on today, even that to me is. You know bigger Thank you for that, yeah! All Right? We're going to take a quick break to talk about a brand that I'm sure you all have heard about. Say No I talked about it in the episode. Where if you don't I announce that I was pregnant in.

Regardless of we think our kids are terrorists are not We should be able to say that with the same validation that everybody else has so That brought me to actually meeting ties through a mutual friend, and we sat together at a place called Soho House and we she.

Petty. Yes we we we say. People are shopping there with a credit line. Okay got the MAC. I love that to. I'm like yes at least you even the role that you play as a mom. You know coming from the commune trying to figure it out and adjusting and I love the justice position of your sister. fantastic actress Christine. Anthony she has. She's fantastic. I love what you are doing there. so I love you have the level of a character that you portray the now you have this. We can see all these stains and tie. Thank you so much for your story. I was so touched by your story. Come into motherhood because like you said like you'd given it up you. Have you close the door you like? It's not happening for me. And then your doctor said yes what. You're pregnant. Which I thought I was entering early. Menopause that's what I thought they had prepared me for so I said Oh I know what's happening. I don't want to grow a beard right now. Home let's figure out minimize the hot flashes so I think it's also given me a sense of Of gratitude to right because An and made this even more important. I think the busier that we are the richer. Your lives are the more you feel like. You have to kind of make an specifically from so passionate about the fertility conversations. Because I found it I mean. Recently you know you hear Gabrielle Union. Talking a lot more about her story and their other folks have come forward but at the time guess I was four years ago. I had nothing so I was working at a tech company. I was surrounded by white women who were freezing their eggs doing elective surgeries and doing things that they had to do. As well right they were just so much more informed. I didn't have the vocabulary. I didn't have the resources. I didn't have the information in even working for a company of a facebook at the time. That was very well. Resourced and very supportive. When I got into a fertility clinic no other black women so let's just a lonely space. Why am I here? Why is my body broken? And there's a certain amount of like looking around in in an experience and seeing yourself reflected so you feel a little bit comforted right people who look like you're going through it with you. The only one right but I was but you are definitely and that was. That was really really tough. And I just didn't want anyone to feel the stigma about it if they were failing in it and I had so many people reach out to me who don't even know me that well who wanna connect around it because they just don't have someone to talk them to like you said you don't know the hormonal levels you don't know your options and you don't know the range of emotion. Joe have when I hit like one of my darcus points. I was on a train writing from New York to DC. My friend my best friend from high school best. Five kids I had fibroid surgery before I ever found out. I had ovarian reserve issues and so She had offered before she said if you if for some reason after your surgery you can't carry out what. Perry for you and I thought Oh offer of surrogacy was so like overwhelming to me. It was like you are my sister for life and I hope I don't have to take you up on that But clearly a uterus is strong and then so fast forward after I found out where I stood in terms of you know having egg low-quality an not counting the uterus issues. I'm on a train and excellent. Couldn't talk so she called me and was a cab. I'm on the train like it's going to break off text you and she text me and said Hey. I talked to my husband and I understand your issues not having eggs and we. I'm willing to give you ED's and I was like that was my reaction. But then I was like Mitch. And I have a kindle. My husband look like my face was like oh but will be her her kids. I mean that's what you for five but but no one talks to you about level. I want to play your best friend or all of US love. I'm so happy that you when you talk about it. It does speak to my heart as someone trying to conceive and you know we you and I talked about this briefly but when you talked about that moment where you said you accepted that you could maybe have to do it. Another way. Getting to that point for me was very recent in has been very difficult in that stigma that you're talking about like people say Oh were you know? How's it going? What's going great knowing that it isn't but also I had to personally get into that point with myself. What if I can't do it the way I always dream? What's the next game? Yeah what's the next street? The next dream when it comes motherhood and that's been the hardest part of my journey so far is getting to that personal acceptance. A what is helped so much when back to. What we've been saying is just seeing like you said Gabrielle. Union was experience. All of these women coming out and talking about being there to has just made. That's how you see the next week in in in real talk Charlie. Seeing black women talk about it. Leave the stigma of over the years that we are just baby making machine and we will where we're sexual allows says this actually no because I remember I didn't have too much of a problem. Conceiving but I remember I was thirty five and I went to the doctor's like Oh my God I can't even have children. And she looked at me she said. Have you tried to house like? That's real in total thirties. Like Oh God you're you're you know. Obviously it's higher risk or whatever but even like saying your higher risk and you'd better get going and all these things so of course you go in there like I'm thirty five and she's like honey. I see all your eggs and there they are today. Here's what you do and then sure enough. I went and did what she did. And then you know and that's really. I remember going into office crying. And I'm a myrtle and she was like. Yeah but but by the age of twenty five they had two kids and my big Mama had nine kids lose this side of this thing like having kids and it's like Oh God and now I guess guild of you're you're going to have one and I'm like okay. Are you going to pay for the rest right I do would by? I saw the phrase one and done up to say that I deal with the fact I think about I don't know what I was smoking because I thought when I would see. He knew what she was in preschool and it would be the sibling discount. I thought I met. She was sibling. Go free not realizing no. It's just like Oh yeah no. It's not it's Hey Darlie you have to completely pay for a whole other child. Yes they're paying to college to your money college tuition or eighteen for twenty two years way. My is that is about to be my did always financially right. God I have no idea I would think you get thirty percent off. No you guys have the best energy and we are so excited for this hijack.
