You remember Ashley from Fresh Prince , right? Stupid question, of course you do. Ashley, whose real name is Tatyana Ali, ranks up there in childhood crushes with Topanga Lawrence, Wendy Peffercorn, and Kelly Kapowski. I may even cast my vote for Ashley being on the Mount Rushmore of ‘Girls Who Expedited My Sexuality.’ Ashley is 37-years-old now, which is a depressing fact that makes me reflect on how little I’ve accomplished in so many years, and her acting career has remained somewhat steady. According to Uproxx, Ali has appeared in movies such as Glory Road and The Brothers, as well as a Key & Peele skit just last year. It’s good to see Ashley succeeding after Fresh Prince ended 20 years ago. It also pleases me to know she’s just as smokin’ as I remember her.
I think I know exactly what I need. I pray for what I think I want. But, God knows me better than I will ever know myself and sends experiences and blessings my way that shatter my limited understanding of my own heart’s desires. I think this is teaching me faith. I think faith means to trust and, like any relationship, the more time I spend with God in my meditation, the more trusting I’ve become. So I pray with expectation, knowing that the deepest, most honorable desires of the heart- for peace, for love, for consolation, for health, for sustenance, for friendship, for family, for faith, for justice, for happiness, for achievement, for excellence- are already being fulfilled.
