“Cherie fought bravely against her
illness, with grace and strength. Despite her struggles she always managed to exude courage and never lost her trademark sass, wit, and infectious humor, or her larger-than-life personality. She spent her last days surrounded by family and loved ones.”

Dimples Romana reminds followers that it’s ok to pause, not let social media dictate your dreams
Actress Dimples Romana shared a reminder that it is okay to take a pause to appreciate life’s blessings and not have to always chase things which social media dictates we should have.
In a lengthy Instagram post, Dimples wrote her reflection as a self-confessed workaholic.
“I’m a workaholic. But if there’s anything these past weeks have taught me is that it’s okay to slow down. It’s okay to look around you and enjoy what you already have than push yourself too hard to get what you want to a point you’ll get sick and tired trying,” she said.
Dimples added that sometimes, your idea of success will not be the same as others’ and that is completely fine.
“It’s okay not to own so much, just what we need and then some (big thank you for our solid mentors for this insight, you know who you are. It’s okay to just BE and embrace the simplicity of just BEING,” she continued.
The actress also reminded her followers that it is okay to relax and enjoy the things you already have in life “and not have to keep trying to have what you think you want to have only because others have it.”
Lastly, she said that it is okay to have big dreams but it should not hinder you from appreciating life’s simple and beautiful moments. “It’s okay to have dreams -BIG DREAMS but to not let your daily life’s simple, beautiful moments pass you by because you are trying and grinding to reach the dreams that are not even yours in the first place.”
“Social media has a nasty way of making us feel we’re doing less and often leaves us uninspired because we see so many of the good things happening to other people that we fail to realize just how beautiful it is really to live free of set expectations we may be subconsciously instilling in our system from reading too much of the good things,” she said.
