There is a fantastic series of questions called 50 questions that will free your mind. Google it. Read it. Answer it.
It's about balance. health, and mostly...revelation. Because what is a bikini but a reveal? So in the midst of my crazy working out, I am going to also take a look at what makes me tick. Perhaps 50 days from now, when I've gotten a chance to get to know myself through these questions I'll also be able to reveal a bikini ready body.
That's a still shot from the web series "Pioneer One" where I played a Astro-Biologist named Richard C. Hadfield. I used to play a lot of sidekicks and scientists. It's kinda my thing. Anyway, judging from the pic here....if I had to guess my age...I'd say, about 34-35.
Now I'll do some analyzing here. Those crows feet are killing me! As well as my forehead...botox time! Yeah right! Once, at a photo shoot, I did have a make up artist once tell me that. "That's nothing a little botox wont cure" I'd love to say I am totally against the stuff...but my first response was "Do you have any in that magic bag of yours?"
I have an obsession with running out of time. Or looking that way.
It's one of the reasons I try to pack so much into my days. Exercise, Acting, Writing, Working, Practicing, Blogging, Running....there is so much to do. There are many things I want to do with my life. It's impossible to be everywhere. I know this.
The pressure's on if I already am looking mid 30s, because there are so many things I want to have done by then. I wanted to have finished School. I wanted to be a published playwright. I wanted to have kids. I wanted to get married. I wanted to have written a book. I wanted to have given a truly noteworthy performance. (with actual noteworthy notes) I wanted to have abs. I wanted to ride a Llama. I wanted to eat star fruit. I wanted to go to Europe. I wanted to learn my family tree. I wanted to learn to dance and sing. I wanted to run another marathon.I wanted to learn to let go. I wanted to...
My God, there are so many things I wanted to do by mid thirties. I'm so far behind.
So that's what I would be thinking if i didn't know my age. Looking at myself and knowing that I look older than I am (which stings a little) reminds me that I do still have time to hit some of those goals. So that's what these questions are for....
Gives me something to think about as I go exercise. I mean...just because my face looks mid thirties doesn't mean my torso has to.
See you tomorrow.
