"I'm not creative"

“I’m not very creative” doesn’t work. There’s no such thing as creative people and non-creative people. There are only people who use their creativity and people who don’t. Unused creativity doesn’t just disappear. It lives within us until it’s expressed, neglected to death, or suffocated by resentment and fear." Brene Brown

What a powerful statement. I so agree with it. I had my creative soul in a coma for so long and I don't ever want to do that again.  I also want to inspire those around me to exercise their creative soul too. Creativity doesn't just show itself in the form of paint or pencil, it can show itself in music, dance, cooking and sewing just to name a few.  I think God is showing me that he made us all to create in some way or another and who am I to say "I can't or I'm not creative"? 

So how are you creative?  Might there be some hidden creative soul dust bunny wanting to be let out?  How can your creativity be a voice of hope to a dying world?  Just some questions to think about, now I gotta go answer some of those questions myself.
