I want to thank you for reading, enjoying and sharing this blog. And I want to tell you that the encouraging messages I receive from you go straight to my heart!
In 2015, I wish for you to stay creative. It is easy to restrain creativity. Society encourages us to be always more serious, rational, influenceable. I want to shout “Let it Go!” — if only it weren’t such a popular song. Be unique, then; and sing what you want to sing. Remember, when we were kids? We would draw, build, invent, craft and imagine crazy stories from scratch. Nobody was trying to hold us back. On the contrary, adults kept encouraging us to create, regardless of the quality of our productions. What was fulfilling to us was the act of creating — not the overall judgment on our creation. Full of confidence, we would keep creating, until we reached the ultimate museum of contemporary art: Grandma’s fridge.
Then we grew up. We stopped listening to what we liked. We began liking what is “cool to like,” and begun the course to become “what we should be.” We were blown in a direction that does not support creativity.
My wish for 2015 is that we find again the spark of creativity children enjoy. Don’t be afraid, don’t be ashamed — applaud difference. Listen to your instinct, trust youself, please yourself and create. In your personal and professional life: unlock your imagination. Happiness starts with being yourself.
I wish for you to remain creative. Find your inner resources to realize the projects you believe in,
even though especially when people say you’re crazy!
