On Artistic Endeavors

If I’ve learned anything over the course of 2020, it’s that I CAN in fact paint and that painting is an extremely liberating experience for me.

I’ve spent a lot of time telling myself that I can’t draw, that I can’t paint, that I’m not good at artistic things, but I’ve realized that I am all the things that I tell myself and by telling myself that these things were things that I couldn’t do, I literally made them into things that I just wanted doing. If you don’t do something, then how will you know if you can or cannot and how, if you’re unwilling to even try, will you ever get better at it?
