note to self: in life there will always be someone better than you; always. But always keep in mind, there will also be someone worse than you. Find middle ground and acceptance. Learn and grow from your mistakes. Don't still your head in the clouds, but don't bury yourself six feet under either.
Love your art both good and back. embrace it and love it. If you created something in joy and inspiration, with whole-heartedness---- then just be happy and love it. Picking out every flaw turns you cold and stressed. Life is not about perfection. You may think it looks ugly and you hate it, but your art may breathe life into many a weary soul. Look into those soft eyes, and see love, see passion. The same passion that sparked your inspiration to create.
