You Were Born to Create
"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before.”
– Dieter F. Uchtdorf
I’ve been inspired by creators all of my life. Two creative and talented individuals raised me by their example to create. My dad was always drawing roses and portraits and my mom, she was always writing. I was always in awe of how they could create something from nothing. I quickly learned that I too had this gift and as I grew up I learned that everyone does, some just may not believe it to be true in themselves.
Creating can mean so many different things and fall under so many different categories. Creating isn’t just the painter, pianist, sculptor, or writer. Creating is also the parent, mechanic, chemist, or body builder. Being a creator for me simply means you make something from nothing. You change what you know into something new. To create is to progress and to feel joy.
Just knowing that people have untapped talent has given me a life goal to help people realize their individual worth. I started doing this at a young age; I would teach people what I knew whenever I could. The joy of creating is something I want everyone to experience. I believe so strongly that the more we practice our talents and share our talents the more talents we will have, I believe this so strongly because it has happened in my own life. Don’t hide your talents, they are meant to be shared.
I am so honored to be able to share my talents with you and I hope through me sharing with you, you will feel inspired to create and cultivate your own talents.
