Today, talk show host Sherri Shepherd sat down with actress and activist Taraji P. Henson who discussed her recent “life changing” Bali retreat. She also told the story about how she stayed present and overcame her fears. Watch the full clip below. We’d love to be considered for coverage! See the video clip inside…
Taraji P. Henson on her Life Changing Bali Trip:
I wasn’t happy anymore. I lost a sense of joy …. I don’t know if you guys heard me on the Angie Martinez show. I didn’t know it was going to affect so many people. You know me. I’m just going to be me. And I was talking to my girlfriend, apparently a lot of people had been feeling like this. So, I decided to take control and find my joy again, that deep joy. Without a drink. Without that outside anything.
So, I went by myself. I didn’t take any friends. And you know when you’re on to something really major some change in your life because the negative energy gets or the devil seeps in whatever you want to call it.
I was on my first leg going to New York to Qatar … and I had a panic attack. But I called my COO and she talked to me, and we talked that devil out. I was crying and about to grab my bags and walk off the plane.
… if you let fear take over it will let you believe in it. So I got past my fear, I went, I did the whole trip dry. Eat, pray love. Because going by myself made me stay present. I had to have conversations with these beautiful people I met and we still stay in touch.
