I often find myself stuck in the past thinking about my mistakes and my what-ifs. And so, my present hasn’t changed much in the last couple of years.

But I realized that I have the power to change the music I’m listening to, the things I’m reading, and the thoughts I’m thinking. And maybe by doing so, I can change my future and the trajectory of my life.

Sometimes, it’s the same with my drawings. I struggle with drawing my day because my days are often the same. But instead of drawing the past or even the present, I can draw the future I desire.
