I used to think that I wasn't creative. I had an understanding of what was "artistic," and I could never quite get it from my brain, through my hands, and out on paper/clay/etc., so I kind of gave up trying for awhile.
But the thing is, creativity is unique. My brain hoards so many expectations of me... they lurk around, oozing lies and breeding discontent. But here's the truth: My brain, heart, spirit, and hands meld together to express me uniquely. I am made in the image of the most creative Being in the universe! Which means I am creative. :) I can choose to embrace that and explore it, or I can continue to let expectations and fears choke it out.
It might look different than I expect, but am I going to choose to let it be awesome in its own right, or compare it to some unrealistic, "not-me" standard?
I've gotta start somewhere... let it out and see what happens.
There are so. many. ways. to be creative, but I decided to start with watercolor painting.
Where will you start? :)
