What Has Bad Boys 3 Star Martin Lawrence Been Up to? Bad Boys 3 aka Bad Boys for Life has been a long time in the making. In fact, it’s been over a decade since Will Smith and Martin Lawrence paired up to play famous bad boy detective duo, Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett, and fans are ready for the next movie in the franchise. Like many films, its release date has been pushed back several times only for it to be announced that Bad Boys 3 should be out in theaters in January 2020. So, what’s been going on in the meantime for actor and comedian Martin Lawrence? What types of projects has he been involved with since the making of Bad Boys 2? Fans of the star want to know who Lawrence has been sharing his talent with. In fact, many new fans know little about his background apart from the other two Bad Boys movies he filmed with Smith. In 2016, the comedian-turned-actor took to the stage for the first time in 15 years to record Showtime’s Martin Lawrence: Doin’ Time. Since then, he’s been working on making his comeback with Bad Boys 3, which ran into production and scheduling issues initially but final has fans’ interest again with a 2020 theater release date. #reelsecuritycorp#moviefans#badboys3
NOT ANOTHER GYM POST!!!! "You know you don't need to post that you're at the gym, right?" I think anyone who's been on any sort of fitness journey has heard this line or something similar at least once, if not more times. I've heard it often. Those who see gym posts and get annoyed can I ask you a question? Would you be annoyed if someone posted about a new antidepressant they were on that worked miracles for them? Would you be annoyed if a addict posted that they found a new addiction and it helped them stay clean? Would you be annoyed if someone posted that their suicidal thoughts were being replaced by something that gave them new purpose to live? Most of us don't post about the gym to show off or be self absorbed. A lot of us have a story behind our journey. We're proud of where we are and what demons we faced to get there. We should be able to celebrate our success without criticism. So if I may ask a small favor the next time you see a gym post maybe you could congratulate that person on their journey and encourage them to keep growing. It may be something that has saved that persons life. I know it's saved mine. To those who have expressed kind words and encouragement I am grateful more than you'll ever know. #whyivasa#myfitnessjourney#notanothergymselfie#gym#thankyou#vasalegend#vasa#tellyourstory
“You feel like home...” I chose this song because when I am at the studio I feel at home. When I am with my dancers...it’s home! It felt so great to have my favorite Wednesday night advanced lyrical/contemporary class again and dance in our home! #krew#werk#tellyourstory#hcchoreography
I love listening to podcasts while I cook. Especially when Grace is at a play date and my hubby @totalrhythmoakland is still at work...I can work on my personal growth while cooking nourishing food🥘 I started listening to a @manifestationbabe podcast this evening and felt called to listen to her latest one with @celinnedacosta about the power of storytelling to be able to manifest what you want in life. I have always believed in it but feel like I never really applied it. My husband is a huge manifester and I believe it is a combination of both manifesting as well as hard work, but I know it helps to at least put the thought or vision of what you want in your head. I like storytelling and find them powerful yet have never considered myself to be a storyteller, I don’t have the charisma or charm and so many other dont’s. Yet, I had a vision of doing a podcast a year ago and that is actually a form of storytelling when you come to think of it and I did manifest it and have it come into being. My biggest takeaway from this episode is to create another vision board for myself. I have so many ideas running through my head of what I want to do or become and realize that I need to put it on paper so I can see it, believe in it and manifest it. What more could we bring into our lives when we can just believe in the hopefully positive things we tell ourselves and tell our stories more often to help bring into being what we desire? Thank you so much for the reminder @manifestationbabe and @celinnedacosta ☺️ . . . . #selfcarephysio#manifesting#believeinyourself#stopplayingsmall#manifestyourdreamsintoreality#storytelling#shareyourstory#tellyourstory#podcastingisstorytelling
We all have a story to tell. Each story is unique. It tells the story about us. Where we came from. How we have grown. How we have gotten where we are today. It is THIS story we share that may inspire someone else. I suffer from depression and anxiety. Taking care of myself in mind and body is something that has helped me change my story. I could use my depression and anxiety diagnosis to feel sorry for myself.... OR..... I could use it as fuel to change and grow into who I want to be. I choose the latter. I am not defined by a diagnosis. I am strong. I practice self love. I allow myself 30 minutes a day of “me” time. I read to grow my mind. I believe in myself. I am worthy of all things. I challenge you to start your day making YOU a priority. A little self love can go a long way. Own your story and become the person you believe you are!
Go read the latest @moodyoops.com 😎 . . Loss, grief, depression, hopelessness. It’s hard to look at the world we live in through eyes that see everything through those lenses. . . Sometimes horrible things happen. I know it’s popular to pretty up your life on social media, but let’s be real! Things can be awful enough to take you out of the game for good without love stepping in. . . I write about the realities of life and death as I know them. What I’ve learned is that even when you are destroyed by death, there is still hope in life.

✨Warning! This post has sensitive material and strong words. ✨ I want to share what happened to me today because honestly I am still in shock and disbelief. I had a this guy that I went to school with message me today. We've been FB and Insta "friends" for years but never really talk. He send me"flames" on a Insta story that I took as I look hot today. Ok, I am pretty and was feeling pretty. Then he proceded to tell me that all of the sudden some memories of me came to his head. BTW I never dated him ! Ever! Anyway, he explicitly described a sexual dream he had of me and another man. WTF! My sweet self tried to brush it off and told him that he should share his fantasies with his wife and that is not a message you sent to someone you haven't spoken to in over 10 years. I also told him that if he fantasied with another man is because he had some type of sexual fantasy with him as well. (it was a bit more vulgar but you get the point) Then he replied that he was offended )I crossed the line) by my comment. Can you believe that shit! HE was offended! What about me !? He was the one contacting me telling some sexual dream he had! How dare he ! In what world do you approach women like that ! - He did apologize for offending me but that he just found it funny so he told me . AGAIN, WTF! I don't find funny that you sexualize and the need to tell me. It honestly regressed me to dark times were I let men do that but not anymore. I wonder if he would like if a boy said something like that to his daughter or if he would feel offended. What about his wife? Would she find it funny? This is a problem with society and too many men , they think is ok to objectify and sexualize women. That we should be ok with it because we are women and they are men or because "that's just how the world works" Well I call BULLSHIT! That is not how the world should work and that is not how you treat another person women or men. I hope he reads this post and feels embarrassed and ashamed. -
Jack, i lied. i heard it when it came out and couldn't save it. I couldn't put it back and regurgitate the truth from my bird mouth to somehow say it again . I am wild and brave, but I came to be with two concrete hands fingered through my ribs to get me there. I once needed him to fist the fear out of the fat on my bones like bucketing water from a sinking boat. I needed to be caught the minute that I started to let go . it's been ten years since I really felt familiar with myself. And it's hard to remember, harder still to write from before I was submerged by motherhood in a roaring whitewash of unrepaired histories and heartbreak. This rise comes on its own. On my own. And at the skin I am trembling and terrified. But in the marrow of my bones I am still wild and brave, "like wild geese, harsh and exciting - " You'll see. #letterstodeadmen#allofthesenamesforyouanovel
