What’s most important? The journey….or the destination?
How about for an artist? Is it the process of creating our art…or the art itself?
I say both are important. But I dare say that the actual journey and process of creating art or whatever it is we’re working towards, is perhaps what’s most important.
Because it’s on the journey and through the process that we become.
It’s where artists learn how to best work on their art.
It’s where we discover what works…and what doesn’t.
It’s where questions are asked. And pain shows up.
It’s where failures occur. And where character is formed.
Who we’re becoming matters. And it’s in the falling down…the getting up…the toil…the misery…and all the other “stuff” we experience in the process of creating…..that we become.
So let’s not rush it. Because what occurs before and during the creation of our art….has a ton to do with what comes after it.
Instead, let’s learn from it. Savor it. Document it. Journal it.
Better yet…share it! Create with it. Sing it. Paint it. Dance it. Speak it. Preach it. Draw it. Sculpt it. Write it.
And whatever you do…..don’t give up.
So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith. Galatians 6:9 (Message)
