There’s just so much freedom in the word okay.
Okay is permission to just make the art and not stress about the results.
It’s knowing that sometimes art is great, sometimes it’s bad, and sometimes it’s just mediocre. And all of that is wonderful.
Okay means giving yourself permission to celebrate the 9 days you created rather than the 1 day you didn’t.
It’s a celebration of all of the messy middle and all of the bits of you.
Okay is… okay.
