Do you also think so????
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?
