    Love this video Ajarae

    One of my favorite and most annoying things I picked up while serving in the military before I started acting haha
    This is one of those principles I feel keeps me the sanest lol.

    I’m hoping folks watching really pick up how awesome this is even with the ease (grace) in which you are presenting it. 🙂

    Thank you always for your commitment to the industry and consistency in helping us gain new perspectives!! 🙂
