Creativity. Being creative is something that we are all born with and have the capacity to excel. When I talk about creativity, I am not talking about the traditional art form that we all stereotypically associate it with. I am talking about creativity in all of its wonderful forms, from tangible to intangible.
Creativity is the process of inventing new ideas and projects that allow us to fully express ourselves. Whether it be writing, photography, exploring nature, acting, singing, self-employment, or community activism, find your niche and practice it.
