Most people are creative. They are! Don’t shake your head, because I promise you it is true. The problem is that along life’s path we are conditioned to put that away and grow up. Why do we do this? Why do we fold up and put away the very thing that makes us unique? News flash…Society doesn’t like those who think differently or act differently or basically don’t do what society thinks should be done. But is that the real reason why we have trouble being creative as adults? No it isn’t. Are you ready for the reason why we hide or stop being creative? We value someone else’s opinion more than we value our own. We are worried what the people we are associated with will say about us, how will that look? What will so and so say? For example tonight my family and I decided that we were going to put up our Christmas tree. Why? Because we wanted to, because for the last two years we have not fully decorated it nor gotten to enjoy it. We decided this year we are going to fully decorate it and enjoy it. And you know what I could care less what anyone thinks or says about it. Because the truth is someone else’s judgment or opinion about you or me is a direct reflection of their own personal insecurities. In other words it is on them not you.
And so “Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
So my friends, be who you were born to be, not the person that your parents, friends of family tell you to be. At the end of the day we know who we are and we need to love ourselves so much more than we love others. Because only by loving ourselves can we actually truly give real love to others.
You are unique. You are special. You have a creative voice inside you. Use it! You are the best! Now stop being held back by others opinions and go do that thing which brings your soul joy!!!!
Until next time my friends, be extraordinary!
