As a child, we are taught to express ourselves and be creative. We usually have creative hobbies like singing, playing softball, painting, cheerleading or gardening.
Somewhere along the way, we get shown that we are not good enough at it or we are not going to excel or make a living off our creative hobbies or crafts. Sometimes it’s said by a parent or a friend and other times it’s just implied when we get asked what we are doing after high school.
When this happens we get stripped from our creativity because it’s not important therefore, we stop doing it.
To be honest this saddens me. There are so many creative souls in the world that need to be let free to create. It doesn’t matter if you're going to make a living of it or if it just makes you smile. It’s worth doing if you enjoy it. Having a creative hobby is helpful for us when we are dealing with uncertainties, processing self-expression, striving for mental growth, are coping with feelings, need new ways of problem-solving, and need a lift in our spirit.
We shouldn’t deprive ourselves of this. There is room for hobbies in our lives. There is a joy to be brought from it and it is worth it, just because it makes you feel freaking good! Today I want to explore one creative hobby
because deserve it. If anyone has something to say about it, just say the messy soap maker suggested it.😂
