I used to draw A LOT as a kid simply because it gave me a lot of joy! The only reason why I did not give my intermediate exams were because I could not paint to save my life. As you may have very well noticed in the above drawing I made.
After I started going to college things got busy and I could not make time to draw every other day, though I missed it very much. I must have picked up and dropped drawing a handful of times before getting onto Instagram.
After I started using Instagram and following brilliant art accounts, I suddenly thought to myself that I could NEVER make as amazing art as theirs. Of course it was not a competition! But I thought to myself, what was the point? Because would my art ever be AS amazing?
After a little maturity/ using my grey cells and contemplation, I started drawing again. This was not to match up to anyone, but I realised that you should just do somethings for the joy of doing them. Not because you want to be better than someone, not because you want to monetize that activity and certainly not because that activity is going to lead you to another glamorous goal.
You don’t necessarily sing/ dance/ draw because you are good at it or you want to be the next Indian Idol/ Dance India Dance diva/ Picasso. You do it because you love to do it, because of the joy it beings.
