What is our creative self? So many of us, don’t even know that we have a creative part. Most of the time, it is because when we were young, something happened to cause us to hide that part of us, so that it wouldn’t get hurt. I was working with a woman who talked about her inability to create. I told her that we all have some part of us that is creative in one form or another. As we talked we discovered that when she was a child she was teased at school for coloring outside the lines and so she created a belief that she was not creative. Does this sound familiar? We take on what is said and make it our truth even when it is a lie. Check in to that child within and see if there is a time in your past that created a sense within you of non-creativity. Non-joy is more what I would describe this part of us. Look at a child and see that even when they are not following the rule, they are in a space of pure bliss, jumping in those puddles, coloring a cow purple, eating the frosting and leaving the cake. Live your life creative and juicy. Why postpone Joy?
