With every new opportunity to start something new, I often find myself leaving behind some of the projects I’ve already begun. Unfinished projects, you could say.
It isn’t because I have given up any hope of finishing them, I often times come back months later to finish something as simple as a drawing. It’s the fact that perhaps it’s the thought of missing something new and exciting that breaks one away from something they have already started; but never quite finished.
Sometimes I look back at the drawings or writings or projects I have yet to finish and I almost forget why I even began them in the first place. Ideas and visions that came at the spur of the moment, but never quite sparked a lasting flame.
In a way, life too is an unfinished project. Although it is not something we choose to create for someone else to marvel at, it takes all our years, energy and determination to finish to the best of our abilities. It is also the one thing that truly has a finish, regardless of all the things we begin and never touch again. A collection of projects and pieces meant to make up something greater.
So with all the unfinished projects lining my busy desk, I see it isn’t necessarily a terrible thing. Maybe there is something I have yet to finish when the time comes. Nonetheless, even my life is still a work in progress, and I’m sure the end result will be something worth waiting for.
