In the late 1998 I got blindsided by a medical issue which was potentially life threatening.
My son Matty was just a year old, our family was trying to juggle finances and try to just get our footing. I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out.
I won’t keep you in suspense… I survived the medical crisis.
However, I also went to a dark place. I was 25 years old when it hit and it brought up some very challenging questions for myself.
One of those questions was what was I doing with my life.
I was trying to make a living as an actor, but I couldn’t seem to make progress. I kept getting overwhelmed, and the medical crisis scared and depressed me. If it wasn’t this medical issue that would kill me, was something else just around the corner.
Turning back to my faith got me back on track, but it definitely wasn’t easy.
In the midst of this journey, I came to a realization.
Life is a very precious gift and that I have been given certain skills and abilities that I have to develop and grow. No tomorrow’s are promised. I needed to do all that I could with my given circumstances in a day and try to make the best of it.
At the end of the night, if I could put my head on the pillow and say that I had done the most with my given circumstances that day… I had done all right.
Not every night was like that, but slowly I learned to stop squandering my days. It was about taking action and doing forward motion. Thinking big, praying big and also making sure that I was on track with what God wanted me to do.
This medical crisis was one of four difficult periods I had in my life as a working creative.
I tell the rest of that story in my inspiring online class: The Creative Breakthrough Workshop.
