You were made to thrive.
You are an artist by design.
I believe that every artist is made one on purpose.
It's no accident that you feel a call deep in your bones to create, you were designed that way and it's time you answered the call.
The truth is, it's easy to avoid this calling for any number of reasons. Viability, fear, circumstance, you name it. But you hear this voice for a reason, you have this bone for a purpose, and it's up to you to figure out why.
No one can tell you why you're an artist, you must go on this journey for the answer yourself.
Becoming a thriving artist means discovering who you are and the artist you were made to be.
You must do the work, you need ask the questions, you need to look within to find your path.
Becoming the artist you already are isn't dependent on anyone giving you the answer, it's dependent on your drive to find it.
Thriving as an artist is about more than just making money.
Becoming a thriving artist is about infusing all areas of your life with creativity.
When you take the time to nurture yourself and your garden, you allow yourself to flourish in ways you couldn't before.
Thriving isn't a term for the artist "making it" - it's a term for the artist on a journey to discover themselves and the artist they were made to be.
Stop asking others and start looking inside for the answers you already have.
