The idea of unlocking your creativity. What does it mean? How do we do it?
For the longest time, I denied this part of me, my creative side, because I had a limited idea of what creativity was. In my mind, it was writing a book like an author or painting a picture like an artist, or doing a play like an actor. I could not see my creativity within this limited scope.
When my mom would say, “you should do something with color,” I would be transported to drawing as a child and my lack of creativity on what to draw. I just could not wrap my mind around anything other than drawing.
But if you were to give me crayons or color pencils and have me color in a coloring book, I could nail the crap out of that. Yet I did not see my eye for color as something creative.
Fast forward to today. I still am learning how to lean into my creativity and connect with my source for inspiration. I have come a long way, with the help of others who saw some of my gifts, yet I still do not own them as I could.
Which got me thinking it is hard to see our own abilities. We become our own worst critics. We may not recognize our own skills or trust our own judgment, but maybe we need to listen a little more to what others see in us. There is a great insight into hearing what others are saying.
Had I been able to hear what my mom was saying years ago, it would not have taken me till nearly 40 to see I have creativity. We all have it! Creativity is connecting to your spirit and being who you want to be, unapologetically.
I am fulfilled when I can be who I want to be! That’s the idea of unlocking your creativity. Do you want to connect to your creativity? Need help trying this on? Let’s chat!
