Words of wisdom?

When we think of ourselves as human, we limit the way we express ourselves in life. We hear, ” I’m just a human; I’m not perfect.” But if we call ourselves artists, where is that limitation? As artists, we no longer have any limitation; we are creators, just like the one who created us.  WOOO!!!!
