Henri Matisse nailed it in saying “Creativity takes Courage” – true indeed!
Big words!!! Yes they are!
I believe the very reason that Matisse said that it takes courage because being “creative” – most of the times looks like a highfaluting word in such a way that there must be something great, sparkling or amazing! A high level personality inside you. But personally, I think everyone can be creative. We just have to unleash it and be open to possibilities.
When we create something, out of our passion or any creative expressions through writings, arts, music, DIYs etc, it is putting out ourselves to the world (whether within our inner circle or to the social media world). Thus displays both of our strengths and vulnerability. The world then sees a part of who we are. Most probably judge us with our own output. A few may also praise. Majority won’t care at all.
Courage then is essential. With the above facts of who and how many are they . . . it is up to you if you want to pursue that creative life.
As for me? Ohh YES!
I personally believe that everyone can be creative. Because it is not what we have, it’s what we do.
Be reminded as well that whatever we create comes from the Creator and so whatever I am doing – I do it for His glory.
The true work of art is but a shadow of Divine Perfection. – MichaelAngelo
Over the next few days, months or even years, my creative journey will be using these hashtags #TheCreativePassport #CreativeCuriosity #CreativeGenius #CreativeLiving #Lala #DivineSpark as I put myself out of the world of creativity.
Stay with me? Cheers to this journey of courage!
Be blessed & be God’s blessings!
