Below, discover 35 positive affirmations for artists, creatives, makers, and visionaries. Let these uplifting affirmations help you embrace your limitless imagination and your undeniable ability to create art that truly matters.
Your Art Matters
“My words matter.”
I think, maybe more than anything else, these three words have inspired me to share my words with the world, even when it felt like nobody was listening.
As creatives, most of us go through periods of feeling unimportant. Does the work we do really matter? Is anyone listening?
Most of us are looking to the outside world for validation, but I gently urge you to not look out there for answers. Don’t measure your value by numbers and statistics.
Do you feel deep inside like your art matters?
What does your heart tell you?
When I first started my website and social media accounts for my writing, I told myself that if only one person found meaning and value in the words I shared, that would be enough. I wrote for that one person.
That person who I imagined was kind of like me–with a dream in their heart and a desire to follow it, even though they were absolutely terrified. (What was I afraid of? Failure. Judgment. Rejection. Being seen.)
If I had judged my value by my external statistics in the beginning, I probably would’ve quit after just a couple months of trying. This website received zero traffic when I first started out. I’d get a handful of likes on my Instagram posts. It felt like nothing I was doing or saying was really making a difference.
But still, my heart kept whispering, Keep going.
So I did, despite the fact that I didn’t know if anyone was on the other side listening.
And then, one day, that one person appeared in my email inbox.
A woman who had been going through a really difficult time. She said she stayed up until two in the morning reading all of my chakra articles, and for the first time in a long time, she felt excited about something.
Eventually, more emails came, and my traffic increased beyond what I had ever expected.
But still, even now when I create something new, I think about that one person. And every time I send something out into the world, I think, “If this makes a difference in just one person’s life, that will be enough.”
So I hope you know that your art matters. Your creations matter. What you put out into the world matters.
And if you’re having a difficult time, don’t try to make everyone happy. Don’t try to be everything to everyone.
Just create for that one person.
Because there is someone out there who needs exactly what you have to offer. I promise.
