There’s so many things I’ve always wanted to do with my life, besides getting married and having kids. Some things I’ve accomplished. Others, not so much.
Growing up, you’re always asked “what do you want to do?” And for the longest time, it was an actress. Something about TV and film fascinated me. But it was looked down upon.
So then I thought of being one of those stewards aboard airplanes. I wanted to travel all over the world (or wherever the plane would take me, lol). But that didn’t work out either. Even though I was enrolled and was having such a great first day with my classes.
So I ended up doing a Word Processing Operator course. I’m not dissing that profession, I really enjoyed it. I did my 3-week on the job training in an office building in the downtown area and was learning so much from the people there. Until I was finished my course and was seeking actual work.
I went everywhere I could think. Dentist offices, law offices, even schools. Nada.
I ended up working at a fast-food place. Not the most glamourous job, but at least most of the costumers made it worthwhile.
But I had dreamt of so much. This wasn’t what I had seen myself doing when asked, “what do you want to do when you grow up?”
It took many years later that I would get to dabble into acting. Mind you, it’s fanmade films, and all voluntary, but what an awesome experience.
So now, besides having done a bit of acting, I’ve also written and published a book (with 2 more on the way).
But what I’m so proud of (besides my kids), is that I was able to join in on a project for a music video from one of my favorite singers – Ben Haenow.
He won X-Factor 2014 and as soon as his first single came out, I had to buy a copy. He’s got one of those voices that you just fall in love with.
Watch the video, stream and buy his new single If You’re Lonely, and see if you can find me, LOL.
Sending lots of love to anyone who needs it. And remember, you\re never alone.
Until next time,,,
