The Action of Creativity

Our creative drive
***
What are your actions towards being creative...
why do we make art?
***
Are we born with raw talent...
or
do we develop a skill for the craft 
driven by a passion for it...?
***
My theory...
I believe
that everyone has the ability to be creative.
It is human nature to be self expressive.
Anyone 
who makes the statement "I am not creative" is wrong.
To be a human being is to be a creature of creativity.
You mean to tell me...
during their whole life time
not once...
have they ever expressed themselves ?
***
Never once,
 wrote a thank you note to someone dear...


Or
perhaps 
baked some homemade goodies, 
as a way to show how much they care... ?

***

These are some pretty basic examples of self expression...
but
they are still showing creativity.

Art
creativity
 and 
the freedom to be self expressive 
everyone
is capable of.
***
You can make anything you want!
If it is pleasing to you... that is all that matters.
It was time well spent, 
you actively engaged your mind in something that was productive,
and
created something "artsy".
Weather you choose to share  it with the rest of the world...
is strictly up to you!


We are hard-wired for creativity.
It is just a matter of discovering yourself, 
and
giving yourself permission to devoting the time 
towards the specific craft which draws you in.
Your driven passion!
***
Taking action with our creative process is very exciting.
It is perhaps one of the most rewarding feelings you can experience-
Creating something original from within yourself...
Giving new life, meaning, and purpose
to something 
old
used
or
 from reusable materials 
to share with the world purely for intrinsic value...
priceless!

***
Why do I make art...
Getting lost in the moment while creating art
 is liberating beyond anything else I have ever experienced.
A true sense of  freedom!
During hours spent alone...
 engaging in my creative tasks,
my thoughts and mindset will shift...
into a state of peace, freedom from stress, anxiety, and negativity.
***
Art
is my personal healer.

What creative action do you take?
