Finding COURAGE in Drawing .....and Life
So many people tell themselves that they can't draw. That they have no skills in drawing. Even in holding a pencil, or in any form of being creative. So many people lie to themselves.
Tweens, teens, young adults, middle aged adults and full grown adults do not allow themselves off the hook, or try to release themselves from the disabling negative self-talk. It is believed that during the years 13 - 16 individuals will look at creativity as something they have or if it's just a waste of time for them. In so many cases the individual's creativity is not given a chance to become visible or accepted. There is a very good possibility it will be shot down by theirs peers and their pressure or by an unattending parent. In some instances it is repressed by a teacher who themselves is "creativity closeted" and detests Picasso!
Giving support to your children or inner child is crucial in nurturing something so fragile as creativity and drawing. Congratulate them or yourself on the first step in allowing yourself to pick up a pencil and let your imagination soar. It will improve mental clarity and unblock other areas in your life. Whether it's drawing and fashion, on the playing field, a place of law, or finance, the imperative component is to trust and allow oneself to move forward. The first step toward discovering that courage is to remove any self-doubt, misplaced shame or guilt and embrace the success that is awaiting you....Trump or no Trump!
