You don’t have to be an ‘artist’ to be creative–we’re all living a creative life in our own way. Through our expression, communication + what we do for a living, there are so many wonderfully creative people out there: chefs, landscape designers, architects, teachers, the list goes on and on.
Being creative is when we tap into our unique, special skills and share that with the rest of the world. No one’s creativity is exactly the same! That’s why it’s so important to figure out where each of our own special gifts lie.
I love creating art and putting my inspirational messages out into the world, but there are plenty of times when I’m thinking, “Does this make sense?” or “Will this speak to someone other than me?” Self-doubt is all a part of the creativity process. It gets us to the next part.
And when I’m creating, I always try to remind myself that there are so many means of expression and one isn’t necessarily better than the other. There’s no right or wrong in expression, it just is.
Gently letting go of that fear of being ‘wrong’ is the way I let myself off the hook. I tap into my inner voice, knowing that no one else can create exactly the way I do. That gives me the courage to keep moving forward.
