Valentine’s Day 2021

In keeping with the spirit of Valentine’s Day, a very creative friend of mine sent me this photo of her work and I loved it so much that I just had to share it with all of you. Her world is filled with images, arrangements and colour, while my world is filled with words. 

Creativity has many faces and it’s a amazing just how many. Creativity adds balance to our lives, an outlet to express what we might not necessarily be able to say in words. It springs from our very being, a thought, a feeling, that can’t be silenced. I sometimes wonder if we ever come to the end to our creativity or if it changes along with us.  and if we stop being creative do we stop being who we are?

I have read that we all came to the planet to create and I believe that is true. We only have to look at the world around us to understand that. People have always been creative from the very beginning of time. Thank goodness for that.

I found a quote by Sylvia Plath that seemed quite fitting for this post and it reminded me that, while many of us will experience self-doubt, especially when it comes to our creative endeavors, we mustn’t let that stop of from expressing who we really are. 

“The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.” Sylvie Plath

Please do not let self-doubt stop you from creating in whatever form or forms that feel right for you.

Happy Valentine’s Day–May you find some way to express the creative you today and every day! 

Feel free to share in the comment section what form you have found for expressing your creativity.
