I think at one point or another, most of us feel like we just don’t have what it takes. Here’s the thing, you do. Check out these words from Van Gogh.

“If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.”

It really is true. You will not create your best piece every time you step up to the easel (or whatever you use to make art). You make your best work by continually making your art. Create, create and create some more. Acknowledge the fact that some of your work will not be what you would like it to be. You might even consider some of it to be a failure. That’s okay, failure is not fatal, unless you fail to keep going and quit.

Bring your best to every attempt, find the people who love it, and bless them.
