What does it mean to be a creative person? For some, it comes in the form of a lyric, a poem, a painting, or a melody. While all different, and while each involves skills that may not be transferable from one form to the next, passion is always constant. The passion and the desire, or rather the need to create, allows us to expose something about ourselves. Being creative lets us use our hands, our mind, and our heart to build something out of nothing. But what makes this need to create so strong in some of us? I think that in order to function, in order to be the best version of who we are, we have to show the world and ourselves what’s inside. In the process of creating we discover about life and more about the internal. Being creative peels back the layers, and it gets to the core of who we are. Even if we don’t always know what the final result will be, there is something therapeutic and freeing about exposing pieces of our life. So find what motivates you and turn it into something creative, because you never know what you might learn about yourself along the way.
