I couldn't agree more. Creativity is the best tool that we all have to express who we are just remember when you were a kid must kids love drawing, dancing, singing, cooking, building, etc..They enjoy these activities because they can express themselves and generally feel happy whenever they do these.
So why we stop? Somewhere along the line we seem to stop because we are too busy with our 'proper job' and why we should invest time in something that will not provide enough money to pay the bills? Money is important but is also important to be happy and working only to pay bills could affect the way you feel inside and outside (stress, depression, low self-esteem etc..) I think is important to find a meaning in your life, a career that you feel passionate about, because you will always give your best and will always work hard when you do what you love.
Sometimes you can do what you love as a hobby and have other job to pay the bills, not only the things that make you earn money are important, I believe we feed our spirit when we do all those things that we used to love when we were kids.Art connects your inner self with the exterior.
Everybody is creative but like Matisse said: "Creativity takes courage"
Write, paint, sing, cook, dance etc.. making things will make you feel great you don't have to be 'perfect' and do everything in the 'correct' way, must of the greatest artist didn't follow the rules and certainly didn't care what people thought. The most important thing is to make things you love and often.
Confidence isn't in a new pair of shoes. Confidence is in what you make of your life everyday not by working in a job you hate or procrastinating everything. Your confidence grows when you make things you love, when you are creative, when you take action.
