We are ALL creative.
We all have an innate ability to use our own unique gifts to create and do a n y t h i n g that we want. Sound too simple? because it is. We are so bombarded by external forces, the environment, media, bad relationships, our own internal demons that the simplicity of creativity gets lost in a web of fear, and lies.
