Life is like a film. Be a film director.
Be a director of your own film.
I can’t believe it has been six years now and I am standing here stronger than ever, and although it has been a rollercoaster of strong emotions and extremely hard work, I know it can be done. I know that everything is possible on what you set your mind. I am a living proof.
When I was left alone with 3 children, heartbroken, with no house, no money, a new job in a new country knowing only one person who I could turn to, it felt like standing naked in the middle of the city. So vulnerable the wind could almost blow me away like a sheet of paper.
I didn’t have much idea what I was doing, all I knew I had to succeed. Not only try, but to win. I knew if I’d lose, I’d make everybody else a winner. But that wasn’t on my agenda. I was so determined to win, I didn’t realise I was winning over and over.
I was always a sport, so my strong mindset knew what to do. If you could do 30, you can do 31…
My focus was on what was important. And for me it was to live through another day and then the next day to try again, and again. I was pretending I was brave, while I was crying my eyes out in the pillow every night. But in the morning I dressed up, got my kids ready, put a smile on with my make-up and carrid on as if nothing happened. In my new job, and it was a job after 13 years of being a stay-at home-mum, I felt totally lost, almost like an intruder. But I needed the job and I was determined to learn, absorb all the knowledge and to prove all the people who said I’d never make it, wrong. Not for them, but for myself.
And this is just one shot of my long film. A shot that captures how you can develop from negative experience, how you can win despite hurdles and big challenges and you can proudly stand your ground even if you have painful battle scars.
How boring my film would be without any of it? If it didn’t work, I’d have to rewrite it and take another shot. Something I wasn’t prepared to do. I knew I only had enough film for one take and one shot only. So I made it work and my own. I was my own film director, this was my movie.
Be your own film director, be your own photographer, scriptwriter and take the lead play role too. Don't settle for an assistant job. Be brave to take the charge of your film.
It is your life, your film, own it, you owe it to yourself.
