We are born to create.

I really don’t like the word “creative”. It’s kinda wooly. Kinda meaningless. Kinda grating.

That being said, “creative” is also kinda the reason we’re here.

We are born creative beings. We are born to create.

And knowing this, we can either act on it, or spend the rest of our lives sitting on our butt.

That is our choice. And that is our burden.

Make of this what you will.


  1. Amen. Everyone is creative. We’ve created homes, relationships, opportunities, careers… We’ve created our lives. Creativity is at the heart of what it means to be human. Once we take ourselves off autopilot and starting being what I like to call “consciously creative”, we can then choose what we create and, in turn, be at least a bit happier with our results.
