this past weekend, my brothers and i were living the dream.
i can say, without hyperbole, that this past weekend in california was an unequivocal success.
the best part of the whole weekend was seeing this vision we have had for a few years now begin to take shape. seeing the guys and gals who gave life to these characters we’ve long had in our head was awesome.
we spent our whole saturday filming and we still have some scenes left to do. but man, this weekend was amazingly productive.
this entire weekend i felt this sense of peace and purpose. similar to what i feel when i’m writing. likely, it’s the same thing. i was made to do this. my brothers and i were made to do this. to create, to tell stories.
like the character eric liddell in chariots of fire, the entire weekend i felt god’s pleasure because we were unleashing our gifts and talents and using them.
of course, the challenge now is to keep making progress. to maintain the momentum we have built up.
i’ll admit, after a fun-filled and action-packed weekend, i had a bit of an emotional hangover when i woke up this morning. i suppose that happens when you’ve tasted your dream for a bit before having to return to your steady diet of the real world.
but as my wife reminds me. what we deal with today is just for now. it’s not forever.
as i was getting ready for work. i kept replaying the weekend in my mind and how much we were able to accomplish because we just started. we just did it. we just took action.
here’s to taking action and keeping dreams alive!
question: how was your weekend?
