If you admire somebody, you should go ahead and tell them.
People never get the flowers while they can still smell them. - Kanye West
As a creator, I know the amount of effort, courage, and heart it takes to put your art out there.
Especially when starting out, it’s not easy.
Sometimes it feels as if you’re shouting into a vacuum.
But every creator remembers that first person that showed their appreciation. I certainly do. That one person that tells you that they learned something new, felt a certain emotion, or inspired them to take action. That one message makes all that effort worth it.
I love sending thank you messages especially to people whose work I admire.
Do you really enjoy reading someone’s work? Listening to someone’s music? Or watching someone’s videos? Why not send them a message showing your gratitude.
A message that takes a few minutes to write can make someone’s day. Sounds like a good deal to me.
