Good things will come to those who wait...

I disagree completely with the statement, "good things will come to those who wait"; in my opinion, good things will come to those who go out and make it happen for themselves. It was maybe 10 years ago I was in a job biding my time, existing, working to go out and enjoy myself. I stopped and suddenly realised that I spend more time at work than doing anything else in my life. I had to do a job I really enjoy.

In the past few years I've had a ball, I feel so lucky; I went back to art school and studied life drawing which culminated in one solo exhibition and one joint. I got involved producing a TV show, have started or am on the board of 6 different companies; developed some ground breaking software, was the Edinburgh rep for the British Motorcycle Federation, flew the family out to Las Vegas so I could go to a business meeting - it goes on...

I know if I'd sat back, lived a safe existence I might have experienced some interesting things but definitely not the life I lead now.

So what's brought this on, is this my swan song - No. I was supposed to see a friends band last night, Ten Storeys High - I couldn't make it. Their first release is the video below which I did some of the camera work for; it's called "Good Things" i.e. good things will come to those who wait; Callum is singing about his love for Ros who incidently has been really ill but is now on the mend and I wish them all the very best.
