I was reading an Instagram post the other day of affirmations to remember as an artist, though most of them could apply to anyone, and can’t seem to get them out of my mind. While I’m sure that it won’t be as polished and well worded as the list I saw, here goes my own attempt:
I can never be the best artist.
No such thing exists.
I can, however, strive to be the most hard working.
I can lift others up with me when possible.
I can be open to advice and growth.
I can allow my art to help me stand my ground on my beliefs.
I can be kind, and remain humble.
I can be the most passionate.
I can embody my art in all that I present to the world.
I can be the most honest.
I can be the most respectful.
I can use my art to heal.
I can use my art to connect.
I can use my art to empower.
I can be the most authentic to my true self.
I can be the artist that I needed when I was younger.
I can never be the best artist, but I can be the best artist for me.
