True Blood star Rutina Wesley took to Instagram to announce some big news: She’s engaged! In a series of photos, the 38-year-old first shared a quote that read, “Overthinking is the biggest cause of our unhappiness. Keep yourself occupied. Keep your mind off things that don’t help you. Think positive.”
