I am no stereotype.
When you look at me what do you see?
Do you see blond hair, hazel eyes, and a big smile? Do you see me as pretty or as pretty tired?
Do you see a stay at home mother, or a workaholic? Do you see a spoilt little rich girl, or a strong woman working for her bread?
Do you see a carer, or do you see a lover? Do you see me, or just another mum?
Everything you see, is everything you judge.
I am not your average girl.
I do not like to go shopping for hours, and am not worried about labels. I do not get my nails done, and barely take the time to style my hair. I’m happiest in casual clothes, or a surf brand.
I love my sport, no matter what, and love to be active too. I love to watch movies – action or comedies please. I have never watched The Notebook. And promise I never will!
I love mornings, and making coffee at home.
I smile and go about my day. I get out of bed every morning, there is no lying around for me. I have my own business and work hard to keep it going. I have staff who help me, and I am responsible for their livelihood.
I am continually talking about anxiety and depression, though expressing how I am feeling is still tough, even to those who love me – craziness and all.
I like to listen to others. I like to observe and take note of what people are not saying. I like to look, really look at people and acknowledge them when they are having a moment of their own.
I am always the first to admit when I have made a mistake. I am always ready to learn.
I do not believe I have all (if any) of the answers – and will tell you so.
I do not look like I have anxiety and depression. I do not act like I have anxiety and depression. I do not seem like I have anxiety and depression.
I am an actor.
