This is a great write-up by artist Stephanie Ryan on the expectations that we place on ourselves as creatives (aside from the demands placed on us by others). She writes, "Believe you can and you will achieve all you set out to." I like her attitude.
I think if you care about what you're doing it's natural to become your toughest critic. In the end, it's all about being happy with where you are right now. Just a few simple words to live by to round out the week... Happy Friday people!
