Equal Opportunity Creation

I believe we are all geared for creativity, and we are able until we die.

Only death is a true impediment to creativity, right?!

(my own thoughts)

No person should be disbelieved in their ability to create incredible art, products, solutions, ideas, kindness, magic, words, sounds, tears, joy… more than anything, no person should disbelieve their own ability to create something absolutely special.

Sometimes we have to let go of creating something specific, in order to find our talents in a very unexpected area, somewhere we thrive and achieve unbelievable highs.

No matter how many years of classical ballet I strived through, I was never able to grab my right leg with my left hand, in a split, and brush my left ear with it. My genetic make-up never permitted my elasticity to get there. At most, in the height of my fitness level at fifteen years old, I managed the spit, sweating profusely. And cursing.

I’m still a dancer in my heart, and I still dance in the living room and as a hobby, Latin styles, but my passion, my magic, morphed to another area where I’m better able to create art: storytelling.

I’m glad I kept believing though, deep down inside…

  1. Totally agreed. I never got the hang of hairdressing, despite spending six years in it. But lacking in that area had opened up my mind to other possibilities, and that’s what got me to writing for a living. Sometimes what we see as failure may just be a door to something more awesome. Anyway, thanks for this post!
