The gift of creativity is not given without responsibility.
There is no greater feeling than confidence when you “believe” you can back it up.
Strive to do something that hasn’t been done before and be sure to leave your footprint on it. When you give the gift of inspiration, there is no limit on your return. A genuine spirit , and “authencity” is all the universe asks of you.
We all have our own brand of “crazy”. Those little things about us that seem a little “off” to others but that are completely normal to us. “Crazy” has its place in all of our lives. Obsession is critical to success-zoning out can get the “extra” you didn’t know you had. Sometimes we’re crazy in love, but by whose standards are we judging?
The greatest challenge in embarking on a journey into creativity is the fear of being critiqued. Which is funny because “creativity” is validated through the process of critiquing. Fear is not a friend-it’s a hinderance-it keeps you from reaching the stars-from getting to the place the universe expects you to go. What good is creativity if it is hidden? Creativity is Inspiration.
Life is not always “a good time” but what I’ve learned to do is let all of the good in my life consume me. I immerse myself in it to the point where nothing can still my joy-at least for long. This kind of joy does not evolve from material things-those things only bring superficial happiness and artificial joy. I’m talking about the kind of joy that comes out of knowing-accepting-and respecting who you are. When you love yourself, people feed off of that energy. Sometimes they react negatively and sometimes positively, but the beautiful thing is that, no matter how they react, it has no real effect on you. Unfortunately, there are people who can’t handle being around “happiness”-who can’t handle the transition of you coming into who you are-it somehow makes them feel “a way” -they are “affected” by it. These people have no place in your circle-no place in your life. They exude negative energy-an energy that is fostered by their own personal shortcomings and insecurities. Some of these “issues” might not even be their fault-maybe their upbringing or a tragedy brought it on them. But, one thing is for certain…..it is definitely not your “issue”. In this world we live in, we have to be our own source of joy. Work hard to create a life that you are happy with-become the person you want to be- and remember not to consider any “standards” except your own. People can only “judge” a person to whom their opinion matters.
Creativity is a talent that those who are blessed with–are not quick to notice. I mean, they know it’s something special-they just don’t realize how much of “The SHIT” it makes them. CREATIVITY IS LIFE. When you create- you have to imagine-to see it in your mind. Without imagination-creativity is impossible.
I would say……. that…….”everyone is creative in their own way” or give one of the other “politically correct” responses. But…FUCK THAT. If you’re creative-that means you’re special. The universe relies on you for great moments. Your influence is what people are referring to when they say…..I’m grateful for everything my eyes have seen.” “Creatives” keep the world turning.Without creativity………… there would be no “favorite designer” “favorite song”, “favorite artist”, I could go on and on, but, I think the word “artist” pretty much sums up who I am talking about. Recognize your gifts-acquire wisdom. We only have one life to live AND we don’t know when it’s going to end. Just stop and think about that the next time you let somebody’s opinion stop you from doing you.
I just wanna innovate and create.
