The hard slog

22 Oct

The hard slog is actually the good slog. It is nearly always the tough periods in life, that hone us and shape us; we are defined and provoked by the negative and not the positive. So “how” will we choose to walk through our valley’s in the shadows of death; when we stumble and error (as we surely will), will we fall forwards into shame or lean backwards into grace?

Mark Twain once said… “Good decisions come from experience and experience comes from bad decisions.”

That is why I consider it such a joy (although an incredibly painful one) to have walked these “apparently” unsuccessful steps in my filmmaking journey thus far. These faltering steps have left me worn out and broke: but they have also caused me to fall back onto a rock of faith and hope. Although I am poor in person, I have never felt so rich in my entire life.
