In 2014 I made a decision.
I left my 9-5pm regular, consistent job and went solo.
No clue, no plan, no idea but I KNEW IT WAS RIGHT.
It was time for me to stop playing small and start showing up for my big dreams again.
I was rewarded.
Two days later I got an acting job. It was November. It was the first job I had had in 18 months. A lovely nudge that I was doing the right thing.
I then secured a great freelancing contract.
I changed my daily rate to my hourly rate...yep bold moves.
But I had my negotiating pants on because I knew it was time to step up.
A month later I became pregnant. The first 6 weeks were blissful and then I sat on my bathroom floor on and off for 21 hours of a 24 hour day.
I ate a lot of beige food. I stuffed kettle chips into my mouth on public transport to stop me violently hurling.
At 14 weeks we went to the Body Holiday in St Lucia. The sickness stopped and I ate everything.
I got daily beauty treatments and strolled between day bed and day bed and read a lot of books.
I did aqua aerobics and yoga and felt amazing.
Matty doing aqua aerobics still makes me laugh. He thought it would be easy so over exerted himself in the warm up :) This all didn't happen by accident.
I went all in.
I decided. Technically it didn't make sense... leaving a job, go solo and having a baby. But honestly it was the best thing I did because it made me step up.
I got another acting job last week. My 3rd in 4 months. Again. I decided.
I filmed on Monday. Obviously I love being an actor for the day but I also love a peaceful lunch. :) Whatever you do don't wait until everything is perfect until you move forward.
