I believe we are all born with a bright, creative spark!I think we all know how to color and freely express, sometimes on walls or our sister but watch a little kid with a crayon. After they put it in there mouth it finds its way to the paper and free coloring and happiness begins!
But somewhere along our journey through 'growing up', the brightness of that spark begins to fade. We don't continue to be creative because . . . fill in the blank for you. Maybe someone got mad because you colored on the walls, it was too messy, or a little critic (they start so young!) said they didn't like what you created or you were told you could never make a living doing that. The list of reasons why we don't create can be long, but are the reasons true and good for you?
Today, think about what you like to create. Do you like to draw, paint, sculpt, sew, cook, sing, dance, make music, scrapbook, craft, wood-work...this list is long too! Maybe you like to create with a lot like I do.
Give yourself 10 or 15 minutes to think about this and write it all down. Think about how you feel when you think about creating and write that down. How do you feel if you were freely creating for no reason other than to have fun. Then ask yourself, "When was the last time I created something because it makes me feel ____________?" (happy, free, etc.- fill in the blank for you here too.)
Creating is so very important for my happiness and well being and I believe it is for yours too.
