This week I go visit a lawyer at a free legal clinic for artists for the second time in one calendar year. I’ve had a strategic change of mind about a long ongoing situation and want to make certain that I go about it in the most secure way possible. I’ve found a new path towards resolution that sets me ahead instead of behind. Since it’s a legal matter, I won’t say any more about it specifically.
I don’t like feeling like I’m coming out on the losing side of a situation. It festers like a wound and sometimes this leads me to self-detrimental behaviours and feelings about my worth. Then again, sometimes I find a way forward in the ashes and rubble. The solution I came up with this time, if I can pull it off, provides me with a full and robust project to move forward with. It’s thrilling to have this prospect. If I cannot resolve my legal issue the way I want to, this failure has still provided me with a structure and concept that can be moved forward either way.
The steps I have taken towards creating these comic book projects has been fraught with failures and learning lessons. Too often I have come out feeling like I failed myself, and there are still ways in which I need to improve on the efficiency, efficacy, and other words that end in y, of my burgeoning skillset and projects under my purview. Nevertheless, I see ahead of me big successes and many, many more lessons to learn. I’m certain I will fail to live up to my own expectations time and time again, but I won’t be derailed. Moving forward is the only way to pursue this dream.
