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.*
