I never really gave myself the label “CREATIVE”, it was always other people who said it about me. In fact, I can’t think of a time when I thought, I’m a creative person, on the contrary, as I grew up I increasingly heard people say about themselves, I’m NOT creative!
When I was a child, I just thought that everyone was creative, that that’s the way people are! I’m blessed that I got to grow up in an environment where creativity was nurtured. As a daughter of an artist/art teacher and a creative business entrepreneur, creativity was just a part of life!
It was only when people started to label me as creative, and when they labeled themselves as not creative, that being creative became a part of my own identity. But I couldn’t understand why everyone else would take on the identity of being not creative!
