If you ask the average young child if they can sing, they will not only say yes, but will gleefully give you a tuneful demonstration. Put on music and another young child will break out in very creative moves. Put a blank sheet of paper in front of a child, containers of paint, a brush, and watch the colors come alive! The drawing above showing the artist with other heroines catching the bank robbers. It was created by a 5 year old girl; see her comic strip directly below;

Far too many people have told me that they used to enjoy expressing themselves in creative ways, but as they grew older, often felt ridiculed as though their creations were the object of disapproval and criticism.
Creativity is a gift-- a gift that often requires courage.
It's difficult to persist when faced with other's ridicule or negative thoughts and comments but refuse to let other's fearfulness stop you from pursuing what delights you and brings you joy, pleasure and relaxation.
It's time to relax,..
