Does your art make a difference in other people’s lives?
A few years ago I met a couple walking their large husky puppy. He was wearing his brand new halter, walking calmly, not pulling his person, not straining against his collar. He was instant-good-dog and his people were effusive as they thanked me for the info on the halter I recommended. They said their lives are forever changed as was their dog’s.
I was thrilled to know that I had unintentionally made a difference in their lives. It felt great to know that both the dog and his people would be enjoying much more satisfying walks for the rest of their lives together.
It was a brief encounter, a short conversation a few days earlier, yet the impact was huge. Who knew then, the value that brief conversation would have.
As you begin the new year, plan on celebrating those brief encounters that could possibly make a difference in someone’s life. Pay attention to all the opportunities open to you to make a difference.
As an artist, sharing your art publicly gives you multiple opportunities to make a difference in many people’s lives although you may not ever know about it. Even though you may not get a thank you or have a moment when someone shares their story of how your art impacted their life, create for the love of giving and delight in the moments when sharing.
There are times when I’ll get a note from an artist who expresses thanks for my books or an article they read of mine. They’ll share some details of how it made a difference in their touring or their business and I am always thrilled to know that my efforts were helpful.
I celebrate those moments. I hope you will as well. I wish you many more opportunities to share your art and make a difference in many people’s lives during the year to come.
It continues to be my honor to work with you and I shall celebrate your creativity throughout the new year and please know that you continue to make a difference in my life.
Thank you and here’s to your success, health and a Happy New Year.
