A friendly reminder to keep doing, keep learning, keep trying -- because it all adds up! $25 giclee print available at the Made Vibrant Art Shop.

Over the weekend I was going back through all 65 of my past newsletters assembling them into an e-book, and it was so fun to see how my writing has changed (and also how it hasn’t changed!) over the course of an entire year. 

In that same vein, I scroll back through my Instagram posts since beginning this daily art project, and it’s so fun for me to see what has changed and what has stayed the same. It seems every two weeks or so the look and feel of it evolves just another half-step forward, a change that might not be that noticeable to some, but one that’s so fun for me to see looking back over this body of work I’m building. 

It made me think about ALL the tiny ways we learn and hone our craft and add to our own body of work each day, week, month and year. All the tidbits and how-to’s we pick up. All the hours of practice we log. All the times we say: You got this. Keep going. 

And what I know for SURE is: It all adds up. Every bit of it. The tiny baby steps of baby steps stack high on top of one another and they add up to one very big evolutionary gain. 

So whether it’s something you can commit to doing every day or it’s just a half hour every week… keep going. You got this. Keep learning and practicing and doing and making, bit by bit, moment by moment, because it all. adds. up.
