Calling All Creatives
So my friend posted an article earlier today, 20 Things Only Highly Creative People Would Understand, and it literally made me feel like someone read my diary OUT LOUD. A few lines in and I knew I had to share. I could go on and on, but like I said, the article is basically my sentiments on a platter.
11. They think and speak in stories.
Facts will never move the human heart like storytelling can. Highly creative people, especially artists, know this and weave stories into everything they do. It takes longer for them to explain something, explaining isn’t the point. The experience is.
12. They battle Resistance every day.
Steven Pressfield, author of The War of Art, writes:
“Most of us have two lives. The life we live, and the unlived life within us. Between the two stands Resistance.”
Highly creative people wake up every morning, fully aware of the need to grow and push themselves. But there is always the fear, Resistance as Pressfield calls it, that they don’t have what it takes. No matter how successful the person, that fear never goes away. They simply learn to deal with it, or not.

Let's see what Ken and Bren have to say about all of this haha Maybe I'll go by the house, and act out all the numbers for them. Comedy and drama always seem to be the best form of communication with those two haha God bless my parents. They've been so patient over the years lol Hope you enjoy!
Good night you guys!
