Step One

So for the last 8 months I’ve been in kind of a rut.  Only when you come out the other end do you realise how far down you were.  I’ve started to feel kind of myself again and now seeing light at the end of this tunnel.

I find it interesting that this was around the time that I found out that I was going to be a father for the first time.  As much as I was overjoyed at the prospect of fatherhood I know that internally my life flashed before my eyes.  Questions flooded my mind.  Where am I going to find the time to act? How will I follow my dreams?  How will I support my family if I try to act full time?

I felt that I was sacrificing my whole being for this new child. I think a few of my close friends saw my turmoil but probably didn’t realise how bad it was.  I thought I was handling this change but now realise this was not the case.

To try keep my life in some form of normality I enrolled in a 6 week Voice Acting for Radio class taught by Jemima Seldon.  I also was part of a still photo shoot campaign for Make Smoking History, which had a life size image of myself placed strategically all over Perth City, Northbridge and selected suburbs.   I also auditioned for a few commercials and student films.

Now that my little Jonah has entered this world, I am slowly finding my feet and adjusting to this life change.

This month I plan to refocus and set new goals to start moving forward again with my acting.  I need to start training again and working on quality projects.

Feels like square one again.  As Lao-tzu said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”.

So here I go.
