To me creativity has always been something that I can't do or be. I didn't think I was a good enough at drawing to do it just for fun, could not hold a note when I was singing, was totally mediocre what came to playing piano. Last November I wanted to help my children to deal with their emotions and went for a class about letting children use their creativity to deal with all kinds of emotions. It opened up a whole new world for me. I ended up molding clay my eyes closed, painting pictures, dancing my emotions out and I realized that my whole life is about creativity. I realized that my writing is not just a job, it is a ceation and it removed my blocks and doubts. I noticed that I AM a creative person, my life is a creation. I create these beutiful momentums with my children every day and I am creating when I decorate my home or paint a wall or toss a salad. That is so liberating and so beautiful and all those things, they come from within me. Where did I pick up that thought that my talent wasn't good enough to create. I feel grateful that I have found my creativity and my desire to create. More than actually creating, the whole creativity is about allowing myself feel creative, and then just go and do it without any expectations.
I can't seem to add the photos for this blog, so you can view the assignment I did for the class I took from my blogs in Martta.gaia.com.
