Let's face it, nothing comes easy in life. Especially the things we really want. Not just because they're hard to get but also because a lot of people inherently want the same things. Be it the fashion cover, the high end wedding or the documentary tour in foreign lands, there's a lot of people striving for that little millimeter of space you work everyday to have your place in. So what makes one different from the other beside you? It's your ability to work. Against all odds and obstacles to keep going no matter the shut downs or the mistakes and failures you gain along the way.
“Where’s Your Destination?”
All of us have dreams. Be it big or small we naturally want a better life for ourselves. Many want to the be the next big thing, the famous one, the person they look up to but so does a billion other people as well. Especially in the fields that are the most fun. Hate to break it to you but being an artist comes with a lot of other fellow artists wanting to make the same imprint as you. To be innovative, to be seen as a legend. I've had my fair share of moments looking into a Vogue or Rolling Stone magazine and thinking to myself, "Wow...I want to do that! Let's make it happen!" A lot of enthusiasm also comes with the harsh reality of learning and gaining experience in which every niche you get into is bound to be a bumpy ride.
But you know what? That's what makes the striving and struggling so amazing! Most things that come easy in my life were are generally taken for granted after the spell of unfamiliarity wears off. But the things we work for? Well after all the time getting to the top of that seemingly never ending mountain, we tend to cherish it much more. Praising in gratitude for the gift received after all this time with a healthy slice of humble pie.
