full sail ahead

I’ve mentioned how I came home to 4 big projects waiting for me (or at least I think I did, and I’m too lazy to go and check older blog posts if I have) but, yeah, I have 4 projects and I’m working on them already.

But I also met up with a super good friend and we have stuff in the works as well and the ideas are coming in, really strong, and I’m excited about them.

The Monument to the Dicoveries in Belem, Portugal. A monument built to Portugal's history of grand expeditions. It's fitting as I return home, to turn back to my recent trip as it marks my own personal embarkation into a whole new world of creative pursuits.

All of these are projects I want to work on. Things I believe in, things I can really sink my teeth into.

And then, this morning, as I woke up, I saw a Facebook message from a good friend with another opportunity as well.

They just keep coming and I don’t feel at all daunted by all this work coming in. I am excited. I’ve started sticking index cards and post-its on my wall with notes and thoughts for each project and my wall in front of my computer is starting to get filled up and it’s exciting. Everything is slowly gaining structure and form and I’m so filled with creative energy that it’s all coming together quite nicely.

It’s like 2012 all over again. That was a monumental year for me. That was the year I felt strong enough to get back on the horse and come back to the work force. I got really sick in 2010 and almost died and spent the next 2 years trying to heal. In 2012, I felt like I had recuperated and I was on fire. I wanted to start working again.

I went back to Manila and started working and I was so filled with energy and the impetus to start working that I was juggling 5 projects at the same time and I was doing a really good job at it. I was writing 5 films, while still doing freelance writing work in the side, and I was doing really good work.

Sure, of the 5 films, only one of them got produced (that was Sonata) but I was feeling empowered and strong and creative and on top of my game.

That’s how I’m feeling right now. That’s where I am at and I’m enjoying it.

I’m enjoying not being afraid and really feeling my power; that all these projects are avenues for me to really communicate with the world, or at least a part of it. Connection — that’s the whole point of all of this anyway.

I’m ready. I’m on this new grand adventure, jumpstarted by a vacation to the land where expeditions and adventures made up the lifeblood of that culture and their history. How fitting. I love the synchronicity of it all.
