Slowly regaining my old passion for drawing.. Reading my previous journal entries, it's interesting just how people change their perspectives, priorities, and even principles. A person's journey through life is a constant process and nothing really is permanent. And I can attest to that. I've always been such a stringent person when it comes to my beliefs and whatever I think is right and especially holding on to the "ideal". As I have kept reminding myself time and again of the saying, "if there's a will, there's a way." But I have learned that, that doesn't always apply to everything. I guess I really have matured a bit and learned to be more forgiving and lenient with myself.
And thus, my old motto of, "I will become a comic artist no matter what" doesn't hold as much weight as it had before. I have been too fixed on something that I wanted and blinded myself to everything else. And when I couldn't achieve that dream, I was left with nothing and didn't know what to do to move forward. Well, that was back then. Now, after taking a break from the art world for a few years and finally coming back, I have become accepting and perceptive.
