I am pretty excited about some of the changes we have made, or rather God made and I happily obeyed. Actually, I was so blown away I couldn’t do much of anything. I was like jello. Ever been there? I have learned over the years that delay does not mean, “No! It will never happen.” It just meant that a piece of the puzzle was yet to be filled in and I needed the patience to simply persevere.
The title of this blog is the new film title for the entire film/TV series. Yes, TV. We are looking at the possiblity of having this as a TV mini series. It is for certain that we can reach more people. I am still hoping to have the first 90 minutes as a film premiere, but will see. I do not yet have all of those answers, but they will come with time…the right time. Right now, I am doing what I need to be doing and that is not looking at the whole picture. I have tried to do dumb stuff like that before and became extrememly overwhelmed. But, I am maturing along the paths of this twisting journey and well, I hope I will be able to help other inspiring film-makers to grow throughout their journey’s too. It is also why I blog and write inspirational books. I like to jot down what I have experienced. I can say, “This has been one hell of a ride.” I have had to hold on tight; dig my feet into the ground; climb what seemed like Mt. Everest; throw off a few wolves in sheeps clothing and simply believe. Boy, if I had quit even last year, I wouldn’t have been given the last pieces of the puzzle. How incredibly awful that would have been.
You probably have no idea how close you are to your breakthrough or the top of that mountain you have been climbing for so long. What used to be miles and then feet, is NOW only inches. I don’t give a damn what you have to do to cross that finish line, just do it! You might be exhausted and feel you cannot move another centimeter, let alone inches. I know, I have been there. I did not know how I was ever going to muster enough strength to add the rewrites. I was like, “How much longer is this going to take?” I would stare at the computer as my arms felt like they were 100 pounds each. So, I just walked away from it for a few days. I have waited this long, what is a few more days, weeks, months or even another year? On the grand scale of things, I have been at this for almost nine (9) years. What is another few more hours? I’ve got this and so do you. Do not fall short. Get your butt up and get it done. If you have to walk away from it for a few days, make sure you focus your attention to getting back to the work, after a slight pause. Things will seem stronger and you will have a much clearer head. But most of all, finish what you have started.
P.S. It’s my dad’s birthday today. Love you, Dad. I know you are cheering me on from Heaven. I’ve got this.
