Day 262:  Rusty already?

Day 262.  After two days away from newly being back in the editing saddle last week, I am clearly rusty from the short break!  Yesterday was awkward, full of starts and stops, had zero flow and was a frustrating day in general.  That was fast!  But, I’m not going to be too hard on myself.  I’m clearly on a journey with this documentary film—an epic journey that ticked past the five-year mark a month ago.  What’s the point of me freaking out about it not being done or being upset I haven’t finished or being pissed that I haven’t arrived yet?  There is no point in doing that except to make my journey suck.  I don’t want the remainder of my journey with this film to suck.  I want it to be amazing.  Therefore, there will be no freaking out this morning!  I’ll simply be sitting back down to my Avid and attempting to enjoy another day of editing.

Until tomorrow, create from what you have…the choice to either freak out about not having arrived yet or to enjoy the journey.
