What is a Creative Pathway?

           What is a Creative Pathway?

    Do you think that you aren’t creative?   If so, why not?

Most of us have been told at some point —often at school that our efforts at painting or writing or singing weren’t good enough.

As John Lennon said

” All kids draw and write poetry and everything, and some of us last until we’re about eighteen, but most drop off at about twelve when some guy comes up and says, “You’re no good.”

So what did we do? We stopped. We didn’t say ‘but I enjoy it, I’ll do it anyway, for fun’.

We didn’t say” I can improve; I’ll give myself a second chance. Another try. ”

Maybe we should have done just that, but it’s never too late to think of yourself as creative and to express yourself.

I believe that we all have the potential to be creative or more creative in everyday life

In my next post I  will talk about everyday creativity.
