I saw this on FB and really liked it.
"You try. You try over and over. You experience. You experiment. You
fail. Failure is the most important thing you can do while you are
finding yourself as an artist. And through this process you eventually
shape yourself into . . . well, you. And no matter what that looks like,
be proud of it. Whatever you find yourself to be as an artist, as a
creator, be the very best at it. Do your art like nobody’s business..."
