To paraphrase the Doctor...it's a funny old world, innit?
Although it is still a few days to the new year, I've been feeling introspective lately and I've been thinking of what I have, where I came from and where I am.
*Between myself and my wife and counting work devices, phones and game systems, I have 12 devices in my home right now that can access the Internet...and I am old enough to remember a world without an Internet.
*I have five TVs in my house and they get somewhere around 500 channels. And can't find anything I want to watch most days...and I can remember a time of having one TV with no remote and, on a clear day, five channels and that includes Educational Television. Couldn't find anything then either.
*I was a drug addict and alcoholic for five years...and I take more drugs now just to function and get through my day then I took recreationally in a day.
*There was a time in my life I was pretty sure I would not live past my 30s and I would die alone...and I am now 42 and have been married for 20 years now thank you very much.
*I've aspired to be in comics for most of my life...and now I am, but not in the way that I expected...and I'm much happier that it is playing out this way. I'm forging my own path. I'm working with some really good people but no one is handing me anything...and I like it better this way.
So what is the moral of this story? Probably isn't one. And I am definitely no comics mentor but I figure the best way to look at it is to believe in yourself, trust in yourself and don't let the adversities of life rule your days. It may seem dark right now, hell, it may seem completely black, but things turn out, the road changes and it all works out eventually.
It has to...or what are all the struggles for?
