Celebrating creativity

Do you ever speak about your creative projects with others? Wouldn’t it be nice to speak positively with others about the value of our creative sides?

When it comes to our creations we tend to say ¨Oh you know, it’s not that good.¨ ¨Oh, it’s so easy to do, everybody can do that.¨ ¨Oh I know a person who’s REALLY good at this.¨ 

I know that I say these things because I grew up with the idea that drawing and making art is just a hobby. However, on my current route to find my truth I wonder: what if my (he)ART could support my life? 

I believe that everybody deserves to be encouraged in the direction of their own creative dreams. When we respect creativity in ourselves and in others we celebrate life to the fullest.

Creativity opens doors to happiness, joy, open minds and playfulness!

We all have our own beliefs about creativity and artists. With saying things casually like: ¨Oh, I’m not so artistic¨ to our friends or children we fall into a trap. Because when we say things like this we tell others that there’s a thing as ¨not being creative¨. Which is far from the truth.

YOU are creative, you’ve always been. 

Being conscious about the words you choose when you talk about artists and creativity is a constructive way. You’ll cultivate optimism, an open mind, playfulness and tons of fun. This is the reason why I organize Drink & Draw Tilburg in collaboration with SOOSS and ‘Drawing away’ A creative retreat to San Sebastián with all my enthusiasm and love.

Let me know if you’d like to celebrate your creative side with me! Leave a comment below book your spot for the creative retreat to San Sebatián April 4th-8th 2019 or join Drink & Draw Tilburg on February 22nd.

    Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted
    to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good blog!

  2. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.

    I must say that you’ve done a great job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Safari.

    Excellent Blog!

  3. I’m not certain the place you’re getting your info, however good topic. I needs to spend a while finding out much more or figuring out more. Thanks for excellent info I was looking for this information for my mission.|

    Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and
    I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S
    My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  6. I truly love your blog.. Great colors & theme. Did you
    build this web site yourself? Please reply back as I’m hoping to create my
    own personal site and want to find out where you got this
    from or what the theme is named. Thanks!
