#AThoughtForThursday: As creatives, we think often that we should ALWAYS get recognition, compensation & all the attention that matches the effort put into our crafts. & rightfully so! We SHOULD. We deserve all of that and more. We deserve that because the process of being someone who constantly digs deep into their creativity to express themselves to the public is not easy. That’s brave & courageous. To give pieces of you. That vulnerability in being an artist, & being that raw & being that real is a full time job! Lol. But whether your art comes from writing, painting, poetry, singing, dancing, acting or etc’, one thing that must remain is our humility. We must remember the reason BEHIND why we express ourselves in so many creative ways. It’s because we CAN’T help but do so. The art, the uniqueness, the boldness & the work is simply just engrained into who we are & who we are meant to be. So whether we wake up one morning & get the acknowledgment we seek & deserve or whether we DON’T, that never stops us from from having the talent, or from having the hunger to CREATE SOMETHING. It’s not about being popular. It’s about being purposeful. & the more authentic & genuine you are, the more people will feel you.
