Brionna’s “Charreah Story”
In 2015 while working as a Digital Producer with NBC’s The Meredith Vieira Show, Charreah was booked as relationship expert to join a panel on love sex and relationships. I knew this was my chance to make an impression on someone who had more longevity than most movie stars! I BRIEFLY introduced myself and said good luck. While she was onstage, I took photos from control room behind-the-scenes for her, knowing that she’d appreciate the exclusive access I could provide. I sent her the photos and a thank you note. That lead to Charreah accepting an ask from me for a lunch meeting! For the next three years, we were in one another’s orbit and remained in friendly contact. When I heard about the book, I knew it had to be mine. I requested a copy for purchase at Greenlight, and suggested my local bookshop carry the title on their shelves!
- “What is my comfort costing me?” Charreah says, “Take steady steps; “decide what first step you can take to expand beyond your usual behavior,” Trust yourself; “There’s a gap between what we’re called to do and what we feel we are capable of doing.
- Don’t wish away the alone time! Wishing away the alone time can be wishing away opportunities to grow unencumbered. This section reminds me of 1 Corinthians 7:32, beginning with “I want you to be free from anxieties.” I often equate singleness with anxiety, but living single can help free us of anxiety. There will come a time to be partnered, but when you’re free to think of yourself and how you relate to the world around you, you don’t want to wish that time away.
