How Do You Know If Or When You’ve ’MADE IT’?
Guest Blog by Gabriella of Bruised But Not Broken
AS AN ARTIST, IF WE ARE PRODUCING OUR ART, OUR SONGS, OUR POETRY, OUR BOOKS, OUR DESIGNS… WHATEVER IT IS THAT YOU DO AS AN ARTIST, THEN HAVEN’T YOU ALREADY ‘MADE IT’?
The general public has a strange idea that unless an artist has a ‘best seller’, or has won a ‘Nobel Prize’ or a ‘Grammy’ or an ‘Oscar’ then they just haven’t ‘made it’. I’m here to remind all artists that if you are producing whatever art you produce, then YOU HAVE ALREADY MADE IT!
I hope everyone has the ability to understand that artists LIVE their ART. They live and breathe it. It is their Life and by doing so they are ‘MAKING IT’ every moment of their existence – and to set up some kind of ‘bar’ that says ‘oh yes, they’ve made it now’ is simply a matter of misguided perception on behalf of the general public – and I do speak ‘generally’, not specifically & not everyone, but generally speaking from my own observations. There are so many avenues that all artists can take, and the general public would benefit from realising that it’s not all about winning prizes (although that’s always nice) or reaching best selling lists (although that’s also very nice).. etc
Art is about creation – PROLIFIC creation. Art is a lifestyle. Art is NOT not a race to any finish line that say’s ‘I’ve Made It’.
YOU HAVE ALL ALREADY ‘MADE IT’ SO RELAX AND ENJOY YOUR WONDERFULLY BLESSED LIVES AND DON’T EVER LET ANYONE TAKE THAT AWAY FROM YOU.
Peace to your home & loved ones. Gabriella BRUISED BUT NOT BROKEN ™
