For me, creativity is a very vulnerable and exhausting process. I fight it, judge it, cry over it, then I crumple it up, throw it away or delete it. I have a tendency to color inside the lines, remain inside the very rigid boundaries that have been set for me. I think that those boundaries were imposed on me with judgement and ridicule and slowly became self-loathing.
I want to be able to challenge those old beliefs about myself. I do remember a time when I did draw, write short stories and poetry, sing, dance. I haven’t done much of that for a very long time now and I think my soul is crying because of it. It is effecting my work, my relationships and my heart… My affirmations for creativity:
*I am an intelligent, unique and creative individual and I share my unfettered gifts and talents with the world.*
