The process is the reward.

Goals are great. They give you something to shoot for, something to work towards. As I get older though, I’ve come to fall in love with the process, again. I say again because there was a time in my life when the process was all I had. I hadn’t attained anything yet. I hadn’t been showered with praise, or validated by human opinion. I was just a kid with a make-shift studio that was in love with the process. I was in love with the experiment. I wanted to go further and deeper, and understand how this thing worked.

Yes, I wanted to be a professional artist, but when I think about it, I was more concerned with the process than I was the ultimate goal. So here I am, right back in that small bedroom. I’m chasing the process. Everyday pushing to make it better. From where I sit now, the process is the reward. Everything else that comes with it is just icing on the cake. P.S. - I love a cake that’s topped with good icing.
