I recently was reminded of 3 things. When I think about them I always feel more excited about what is possible for my Art and Life.
And this is what I want to talk about today.
If you are rushing out to get your coffee and don’t have time to watch right now, here are the 3 awesome things I want to remind you about…
#1 Making amazing, authentic art is available for anyone. Yes, that means you too.
#2 The big mover and shaker in making your Art friggin extraordinary is…. YOU! It is all about leaning into who you are…and guess what? You already have all that!
#3 Here is, hands down, the coolest way to think about and motivate yourself to make more art more of the time…
Art making is the time in your day when you get to entirely, unequivocally be yourself. No phone calls, no one looking over your shoulder, and no one even in the room but you. It is the time you get to be totally free.
How great is that?
I was reminded of these 3 empowering ideas while sitting in the audience, listening to Marie Forleo at her recent book launch event in San Francisco.
These ideas got me all fired up and so I just had to share them with you.
Her new book “Everything is Figureoutable” is easy, funny and CLEAR. (Which I SO appreciate.) It is also super helpful and I bet will inspire your art as well as your life. It did mine.
Marie Forleo, in case you haven’t heard of her before, teaches and inspires entrepreneurs, creatives to dream bigger and create results in their lives. She is the creator of the uber popular MarieTV and the Marie Forleo Podcast.
Marie is very successful, but most importantly she is down to Earth. She is accessible. She makes the rest of us feel we too can realize our biggest dreams.
I love people like that.
Anyway, I was given an extra copy of her book at the event so I wanted to give it away to one of you!
Later today we will choose a standout comment and let you know next week who will receive this signed copy of “Everything is Figureoutable” (Signed by her, drawing of Maizy by me!)
What inspiration thing are you reminded of today?

Make art today like there is no tomorrow. That is my plan!
