The Creative Adult

Do you also think so????
I do.

I am a creative adult. My obvious creativity is the Art I make but that apart I would like to consider myself creative in various other things like cooking, dressing/styling (I love clothes :)), decorating etc etc etc and  believe me I am not blowing my own trumpet here. I may not be an expert in all these things but I watch, I observe, I learn and then I apply :) and yes I can do it without any formal training.

I have a child in me . I still have the curiosity and imagination of a child. Whenever I see something new that interests me , I try to learn about it, I ask questions ( or shall I say I GOOGLE :)). I acquire the knowledge and then use it or apply it whenever necessary or applicable. Now this can be in some physical form or as a part of a conversation or discussion.

Now what is that the child in me has survived??????
I say I haven't let the general disappointments of life get to me. of course I have been sad about various things but I have come out of them, learnt a lesson wherever necessary, forgotten about a certain things and then moved on. I have made a conscious effort to be a happy person and to never lose the child like  ( not childish ;)) quality in me. Of course I behave all grown up and responsible, but only when the situation demands it, but other then that I enjoy all the small, medium and big things that I come across :) :)

What do you have to say about it ?
I think many of us are creative, we simply vary in the degree of creativeness. But some people let life take over their creative juices. I have seen people making statements like: When I was young I used to do this, I used to do that but not any more, my time has passed.

I am firmly resolved to make all the possible efforts to make sure I never have to make such a statement.
What about you?

  3. I think so too, I really do.
    I'm really happy that the child in me is still here, I would be a very sad person if that wouldn't be the case.

  7. Having a child in you keeps the fire burning. The desire to keep learning and understanding things makes you progress. This is a very good post, food for thought.
    Impressively put forward.
    Have a wonderful week ahead Purvi:)

  8. I work with kids a lot so I think that helps whenever I try to be too "adult." They'll check me! It's important to be creative!

  9. We share the same way of thinking! My inner child is still alive and kicking, should I think that my time has passed.....i would be very unhappy! Experiences are a great training to enjoy what you currently have, that's my motto!

  10. My dad would always say to me, "Never let the child in you die!" ... I guess that line just stuck. I still say things like, "when I was young ... " but I also make it a point to do all those 'young' things all over again :)

    Great post!

  12. Hi darling, I think you should be so proud of ability to harness your creativity and turn it into something amazing. I think you would love Clarens, because it is a haven for all types of artists.

  18. Great post! I agree...I love life and learning. I love using creativity and imagination. I think 'age ain't nothin but a number' and should not stop our progression and growth or stop us from doing things that we like to do.

  20. what you said is true, people let life take over... when i was going through university it pretty much stomped my creativity, it wasnt until a few years ago when i started a blog that i found it back

  22. Your art is stunning !So true that everyone of us has a creative spark in us- some of us choose to ignite it , some let it languish in rigmarole of daily existence, jobs and busy schedules..

  23. I feel everyone has a childlike character in them. We only flaunt it whenever necessary.
    I do agree with you.

  26. Love the quote, so so true. I think I live that way, more so now I'm a mum myself, as I try so hard to nurture my sons creativity which inevitably rubs off on me :)

  27. Maturity doesn't mean you have to be serious and all. A responsible adult can eat ice-cream, go on the merry-go-around and laugh whenever he/she feels like.
    People are stupid :P

  28. I hate making such statements too...people think we're being childish by indulging in something as creative as artwork because they're too practical and mostly never understand the awesome that is art. I have a curious child in me too and I think everybody does, it doesn't mean we're not mature enough.
