Not much feels as good as igniting your inner creativity. We are encouraged at a young age to create whatever our little hearts desire. With paint, pencils, crayons, paper plates and pom-poms. But as years go on, creativity is placed further and further on the back burner. But why?
If you are anything like me and have the mindset to become better than the person you were yesterday, creativity is the perfect outlet. Along with self-progress comes self-awareness and self-expression. If you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed, creating surely subsides your emotional strain.
This post is to remind you that creative expression does not have to stop at a certain age. We tend to overlook how blessed we are to live in a time where we can learn how to create anything at the touch of our phone in our palm. We have the freedom to create whatever we can dream of. The only person holding you back from creating, is, you guessed it, the person looking back at you in the mirror.
So this week I encourage you to let your emotions run wild, create and proudly say “I made that.”
If you would like to take a look at some (re)creating I have done this weekend, check out the All New American website.
