Make your art


You are an artist. 

No I’m not.

I can’t paint.

I don’t have an artistic bone in my body.

I’m not creative. 

I don’t write. I don’t play.

I don’t…..fill in the resistance filled blank here.

But this is not just what art is.

Art is creation. Art is thinking outside the box. Or destroying the box. Art is showing up and speaking up when it’s hard. Art is crafting a strategy and sharing it. Art is the way you cook a meal with love for your family. Art is creating beauty from your soul, no matter what form it takes.

And yes, art is writing that blog or book. Or painting that picture. But it’s also starting that business. It’s wanting to make a difference. It’s moving out of your comfort zone. It’s connecting to what you love and sharing it with someone.

You are an artist.

What art can you make today? What will you commit to? What will you create?

Stop being a cog in the wheel. Be the wheel.

Stop trying to fit in.  Stop trying to be who you think they want you to be.

It’s your time to show up. Shining is not just for the stars. It’s for everyone. And it’s your birthright. 

Your art allows you to shine. And not just to shine. To illuminate.

Make your art. Not just because you can. But because you must.
