Have you ever told someone that you are not creative? Today we will explore the origins of that message playing in your head. Please find a piece of paper, and ignore the inner critic telling you not to go and find the paper. Find a pencil or pen as well, continuing to ignore that inner critic trying to talk you out of these activities. Draw something, anything, even if it is just a stick person or a doodle. As you draw, listen closely to the messages going through your head….The goal here is to find the source of the negative talk, explore it, then replace it with a more positive message encouraging you to embrace your creativity. This might not be an immediate process, but a stepping stone in a new direction.
Yesterday’s project: How does your tiny graffiti wall feel? Were you able to let go and free form “stuff” onto your page? Did you use more words or images? If you showed it to a friend, could they learn more about you? Did it convey any emotions? Did you find the process engaging and enjoyable?
