Psychology wizards say you should celebrate small wins.
I'm doing it with ice cream and art supplies. Join me, won't you? 🍦
Somehow 1,000 people have chosen to see my emails in their inbox each week. Thank you for being one of them! I’m so proud of this lovely community we’ve created.
Celebrating our own milestones is important, but it’s HARD. I can’t tell you how many times I cringed writing this post. Psychology wizards say you need to acknowledge even small wins, so your brain will get warm, fuzzy feelings and motivate you to keep showing up.
That’s why I made this Milestones section and glued it to my homepage. It’s a place to acknowledge your wins and encourage other members. Everyone here is in different stages of their practice, but we’re all dedicated to growing as humans and artists.
Other social media platforms felt like showing up at my high school cafeteria, with a face full of zits wearing off-brand everything. Substack feels like arriving at my grandma’s house as she’s pulling a sheet of cookies out of the oven. This is a kind, supportive place to be yourself.
Substack gives me the opportunity to give my content at no cost to artists who are:
members of the LGBTQ+ community, or
experiencing financial difficulty
Please message me for access with “DRAWING ACCESS” in the subject line and I’ll add you to my paid list. No questions asked, nothing expected in return.
Thank You, Free Members
