So You Don't Think You're Creative?

We've been trained to believe that unless you're a full on photographer, writer or some other kind of "real artist", the word "creativity" doesn't apply to you.

Maybe you think of yourself as someone who "used to be creative" when you were about 10 years old.  Or maybe you kinda, sorta want to be more creative, but it's just not going to happen in that job you head to Monday-Friday.  Or maybe, you have been told that being creative isn't in your DNA, you're more of a "right-brain" kind of person. 

 
“The only unique contribution that we will make in this world will be born of creativity.”
— Brene Brown
 

No matter what you think you know about creativity, and no matter how much you think the word does or does not apply to you, there is something new to be learned.

I have listened to this podcast with Elizabeth Gilbert and Brene Brown at least 4 times, and each time I feel like I'm hearing it for the first time.  

They talk creativity - along with the fear, shame, judgement, pain and GOODNESS that comes from embracing it in your life.  

Do take a listen and enjoy!
