It Was All A Dream: 3 Things You Must Do Now to Make Your Dreams Come True

There is a quote floating around that states something to the tune of “There were days I prayed for this”. This rings so true for me today as I travel to Indianapolis, Indiana with the cast of my theatrical production Traces of Her Lipstick. We will be blessed to perform 3 shows to a packed theatre of new audiences. Today, I am realizing a dream come true. In my humility and honesty, I must admit that this week in preparation for the trip, I felt everything except excited. I Read more […]

There Is Only One Difference

There is only one difference between those who do and those who don’t. We are all one simple decision away from doing what we have always dreamed of. One decision. It still baffles me that so many give up before the race is won, never stopping to consider that they have already come so far. If you opened your eyes this morning and you are reading this, you have come a mighty long ways. You are still standing and that means that there is more for you to do! While in college, I was heavily encouraged Read more […]

That God Kind of Love

I can honestly say that I wasn’t sure that our love would last. All that I knew was that I was willing to give it a shot. And if we were transparent and honest, even we would admit that we never really stood a chance at love. In the first 2 years of our marriage, we experienced 5 out of the 5 indicators that flag a marriage for divorce. And because of the trauma that my childhood revealed, I was in no position to recognize love. Broken or worse is an accurate description of my condition. When Read more […]

I’m Sorry, Did You Say Something?

I’m Sorry, Did You Say Something? Remember sitting in class and the teacher asked a question that you thought you knew the answer to but you refused to raise your hand for fear of being incorrect?

It appears that the older we get, the more confidently we speak and lift our voices for what we believe Read more […]

Woman to Woman

Today is National Women’s Equality Day. What a time to be alive as a woman! The date was selected to commemorate the 1920 certifiation of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote. And with the right to vote, a hidden power was unleashed. From that time, women have progressively moved forward, broken new boundaries (and rules might I add) and continued to demonstrate that there was nothing that we couldn’t do. Today, we stand on the heels of greatness and witness Read more […]

Allow Me to Reintroduce Myself

I am rounding out my thirties and honey chile, I have finally learned to love me. I guess I spent all this time trying to find out exactly who I was. I laugh way too hard and probably a little too much for some people’s liking. I have purple gums. My stomach reveals the burden of two beautiful children. I used to hate my curves but now I embrace them. My nose wrinkles up when I’m excited. I love to play in makeup and my closest friends do too. I have short hair and I make no apologies for it. My Read more […]

Ardre Orie Receives the World Changer Award

When I was in 7th grade, I made mostly D’s and F’s on my report card. I am certain that the teachers referred to me as a troubled child. I could be seen on any given day with my feet up on the desk, popping gum and talking back very disrespectfully towards the staff. I attended a school named Howard Bishop. And at the time, the school’s reputation was on the mend from many unfortunate mishaps due to an increase in gang activity and so called turf wars. One could assume that I was just like Read more […]
