You must take yourself, as an artist, seriously others may or may not.
Don't rely on anyone other than you to deem your creations worthy of existing and in which form.
Take joy in your unique creative process. However your work ends up, enjoy the time spent creating it.
When you put your creative projects out into the world, others may or may not appreciate them or like them. That's OK.
Listen to the voices of those in whom YOU have chosen to be your creative guides. Not everyone has to have equal space in your head.
Ideas are free. But you can't hoard them. If you don't use it, you will lose it to another artist. Ideas and inspirations want to be born. They won't wait for you forever.
Now that we all have a bit more time on our, very clean, hands, use it to bring some amazing art into the world. It needs it right now..
