Trust the Process

I saw this written today. Trying to make projects happen is hard. For every good thing or step forward, there seem to be 10 deadends or disappointments. You aren’t a good fit. You are told there is a “disconnect”. No one is interested. You constantly question why you bother to make art in a world full of noise.

As a friend said, it’s all about the kaupapa – the motivation behind what you do. I have to trust the kaupapa, and keep my faith in the process.
