Whenever one of my dear friends break up with their man or girlfriend, I say, GREAT! This is an opportunity for you to grow and get to know who you are. I had no say in my life 10 years ago, I was surrounded by 'yes' people, and restricted in every way. I was a prisoner in my own life and I changed it. I did not want to be this ridiculous blonde, buxom, bimbo that I was portraying, something they did not plan on, the bimbo had brains. This is not the biggest learning curve of my life, but it has shown me who I never want to be. I feel for anyone in the music business or in a situation of fame. I look at the magazines and they are allot harsher now than they were 10 years ago and I would have been just another statistic.
My path has taken allot of detours and people think I am ashamed of my past. No, I embrace it, I have come so far and realise that money is just that $$$$$. People and love is what matter and I am happy to say, I will not indulge myself to feel pity for what I was only embrace the person that is here and now.
Anyone that knows me, this is me eating 4 raw prawns a day and 1/2 a cup of tea.
What a great way to live, NOT!
I always think of Holly Valance saying, "I would rather stick pins in my eyes than be in the music industry".
