People think art is something you do with a paintbrush.
But it's not. Art is anything we make that we put emotional labor into it.
And that means, we all can be artists. We all can make something we care about. Whether it's a painting, a poem, or even the way you helped someone. We are all artistst.
But don't let words or labels define you. Just do work that matters to you. And show it to the world. Let it be judged. And then repeat. If you don't show it to anyone, then you're hiding.
Henry Ford once said, "whether you think you can or you think you can't. You're right."
So yes, you are special. And no, you are not. Up to you.
