Creativity, To me this is one of the most important things. Simply because I've been an art student for most of my life, but even if you're not an art student, it is still important. Who wants a boring life? A bit of creativity can change everything!

A great amount of people can be called creative, Creativeness comes in all different forms You might be an amazing painter, great at DIY's a wonderful designer, or be able to read music like words. All of these things require you to let your imagination go wild. You get to create something special, that not everyone could come up with. Yet all of this takes a lot of courage.

Sometimes when you discover something you are good at, you are praised for it. Then that makes you want to do more of that so that you get more praise, Sometimes this can stop you from trying something new. you might come across something else that you really like and you want to try, but you are afraid that you will fail or that no one will support you with trying it. Its ok though because most people go though this, in fact millions of artists, designers and musicians have gone though it.

When i started this blog and i mentioned it to a few people they gave me a weird look, And i even got told it was stupid idea and i needed to focus more on college and getting a job. It hurt, and i stepped back for a second and thought about it, But really who do people think they are? telling me what i should and shouldn't be doing. This is a hobby, and i put a lot of effort into my blog.

Even though this happened i still carry on, doing something i love. I know that I'm going to get a lot more hateful comments, but starting a blog, and putting yourself out there takes a lot of courage. If you're like me, have the courage to continue on your own path. Do more of what makes you happy, Try new things, Be kind to your self and don't listen to the nasty comments!
