“Unused creativity is not benign - it metastasizes. It turns into grief, rage, judgement, sorrow, shame. We are creative beings. We are by nature creative. It gets lost along the way. It gets shamed out of us.” (Brené Brown)
We live in a society where we are led to believe that creative endeavors are self-indulgent, and even frivolous. We believe that they are not the best use of our time. Nothing could be further from the truth. As Brené Brown stated, “Unused creativity is not benign.” Acting on creativity is essential to our physical and psychological wellbeing. Failure to act on it can metastasize into anger, depression, anxiety, and other negative effects.
The purpose of Colorful Creatives is three-fold:
1. First and foremost, to provide opportunities for creative fun and play;
2. To further our understanding of the importance of creativity in our lives;
3. To enhance our physical and psychological wellbeing.
Welcome aboard! Here’s to embarking on creative adventures together.
