She Is…

Actress. Activist. Artist. She is CCH Pounder.

I remember her from her role ER and The Shield. She played strong women who could make it through tough times. Currently she is on NCIS New Orleans.

She is a great example of confidence and beauty.


When she first told the story, I didn’t hear her because of all the noise in the restaurant. There were other conversations going on. But one of my friends decided that she would do 17 things she had never done before in this upcoming year. The more I thought about it, the more I thought I should do it too.

How cool is that to intentionally seek to learn something new.

This journey is turning out to be fun. I am three in and it has been a learning experience. But it has also changed my mindset in some areas. One of the things on my list was attend s Mardi Gras parade.

I got to see parts of Galveston I had never seen. I collected beads. We had good laughs.

This journey helpd me not take things do serious.


It has also given me new ways to see some old things. It has encouraged me and given me new confidence.

So. Why don’t you try it?
