At the time my thought was how can I call myself a creative person when I don’t have a definite creative outlet? What does it mean to even be creative? I began to ask myself these questions and realized that little everyday things matter. Even more than the big stuff. In conjunction with gathering inspiration from many different sources, I find myself expressing myself in things like the way I dress, my mum always jokes that “Why won’t people ask if you’re Nigerian?” , the way I style my hair, the way I cook, This blog, how I wear make up, how I paint my nails. Little drops make an ocean yes?
It’s one of the reasons I decided that I wanted to be a teacher, main reason I wanted to do something fulfilling in which I was actively positively impacting young minds. I wanted to be i an environment that was constantly changing and creatively charged. Unfortunately I haven’t had much of a chance to be really creative, when a school has a set way they do things nobody wants change, especially from a 22 year old who knows “nothing” sigh. slowly but surely I hope.
Anyways that’s my rant about giving yourself creative license.
So tell me, how do you express yourself creatively?
Love and creativity,
