a disappointment but not a set-back
Last night I discovered that I did not make the cut to participate in this year's LALUZAPALOOZA Show. Needless to say, I am crushed, but I do not feel defeated. 8,999 other artists submitted work for the show -of which only 120 were selected. Nothing will stop me from trying again next year. I will not consider this a set-back. I do not view this rejection as a value judgment, in fact, it's just the spur I needed to thrust me into overdrive. . .and PUSH me higher, farther, faster! I am compelled to prove who I am and what I am capable of. The path is finally coming into view. The momentum is building, I can literally feel the ball rolling. . . there is no turning back.
This morning, looking for an image for this post, I reached for my old Thesis Journal from Art School (1998) - which I don't think I've touched since then. When I opened it, this is what I found on the first page. The words couldn't ring more true for me at this moment as I struggle to navigate the course ahead. I just added the hourglass to emphasize my determination to make every minute count!
“When you’re creating your own shit, man, even the sky ain’t the limit.”
