do you ever just want to get where you are going? i have been struggling with this lately, a little bit of impatience. the waiting can be brutal. i am surrounded by expectation. i know that there are great things right around the corner. and i feel like a little girl wiggling in her chair being forced to sit still sometimes.
things are slow when you are an artist. you spend a lot of time waiting. it is just the name of the game. even if you do get some sort of contract (and i haven’t yet), you have to wait months for it to happen.
i am learning that there is a flow. that i can lean into the flow. to not rush things, because there is a time for everything. i need to be careful not to get ahead of myself. i need to be faithful in the moment that i have right now. when the time is right, the puzzle pieces will fall into place.
sometimes you have to let ideas and passions marinate for a while.
and i am learning to appreciate every step of my journey. to truly celebrate every success. to savor the experience of it all. to really stop and breathe. and wait for the right timing. because there are lessons in the waiting.
