Today I'm feeling kind of sleepy and like I need a bit of down time, so I'm taking it. The only thing I've made so far today, is the little picture with the quote for you. (Not my photo, stock photo from Canva)
I thought we needed a reminder. I struggle with perfectionist tendencies myself so I really do understand, but I've had several people approach me lately saying that they wish their stuff was "better" or "good enough" and I want to hug them and shake them a little at the same time.
It's not about getting it right, it's not about making it perfect, it's about making progress. Art is a journey. Sure get better, practice, learn new things. Learn ALL THE THINGS.
Creative lives are richer. There is NO RIGHT WAY.
I want you to remember 3 other things.
1. You may not like it, but someone else is going to think it's the most amazing thing they've ever seen.
2. All art goes through an awkward teenage stage
3. Time spent creating something is never wasted time.
These are the things that I am learning to be true.
