An old friend once said to me whilst in a moment of talking about my past circumstances, that "Life is what you make it",and it is only when I look back to the last year, I see that there is a lot of truth in my friends statement. I think it would be wise to say that life in the last twelve months has been very good to me and I'm proud to even say that all of this wouldn't have been possible without the support of close family and friends.
I haven't really given the time to this blogging malarky, since I started "All the worlds a stage...", and to the subject of my own creativity, that is totally inexcusable. However as I am acting as my own jury, (ahem, for creative purposes only, if I may add? ) it would be safe to say that its been a hell of a year creatively. However, this still doesn't excuse me, as to why I haven't pulled out all the stops in order to put pen to paper, or in this case, fingers to key board.
So now, as I sit, under a creative light, (or what some people simply call a 40 watt bulb) I have managed to muster together the last two paragraphs, which I hope will, in time, contribute to giving reason to the lack of actors blogging!!!
Well its been six months since my last written effort, and well in short and since then, I have been busy being part of at least three plays at the Dolman Theatre, here in Newport, as well as currently rehearsing the fifth play I will be appearing in, in April. All will be discussed in due course, I promise. :)
As well as the above, I also changed my job back in October of last year. Something that will hopefully, allow me to be a little more creative and be that just bit more healthy! To top off the last few moths or so, I have also found myself a lovely lady, my own "Princess".
So to much influence by my brother and promise to my lovely lass, I have now done a blog, as promised and for those that have supported me in all I have been doing over the last lot of months, I thank you all.
Which brings me back to where I started.
"Life is what you make it".
No matter if people ask you to do something, or advise you. At the end of the day, you will only do what you want to do, and looking back over the last year, I am over joyed at myself for what I have done and what I have achieved personally. The only thing now is to share it with the ones I love and have close at heart. So, yes indeed, "Life is what you make it". Just make sure you don't let time pass you by, afterall it's up to you to make things happen.
Until next time...
