The Road Not Taken
Updated: Apr 10, 2019
Becoming a full-time illustrator has been on my mind for some time. This year I'm finally committing to starting my journey of self-discovery as an artist.
In the past I was holding myself back with thoughts like "I'm not good enough", "Now's not the right time", "I don't have enough money" etc. Then I realized that I can't wait for someone to give me permission to start. Would I regret it more if I tried and failed, or if I never gave it my all? The answer is that I would always look back on the road not taken and wonder "what it?". I don't want that to be my biggest regret.
Too often we only see people who've reached the pinnacle of success, and we think there's no point in trying because we can never be as good. I get it. No one wants to show their unglamorous side; those moments when they're down in the dumps. In reality we all have to start from somewhere.
I don't know where this path is going to take me, but as long as I've taken the first step I'll get somewhere.
