This illustration is about the tension found in the pursuit of opportunities & the contentment found in the present moment. I’ve discovered this tension to be paralytic at times... the fear & beauty of the unknown somehow woven together without any real resolve. Waiting for an accepted submission to feel validated while rejecting the notion of being validated as a position of acceptance. The found contradictions in the mess of insecurity. That’s what happens when I look to myself to save myself. So here’s to surrender... the letting go while staying grounded upon a rock that is not shaken amidst shifting sand.
