In The Book of Awesome #916 – The sound of scissors cutting construction paper, is the sound of creativity bubbling, it’s the sound of ideas bubbling.

The novel new idea, the originality, the thought of ‘what if…’, the expression - ‘such a great idea’. 
We have all been there and experienced creativity. We do however often hold back, not because we don’t have those ‘creative bones or juices’ in our body like we say, but often more because we are afraid.

What are we afraid of?
Mistakes, Failure, Ridicule, Disappointment

Can you imagine the world we could create if these were not our thoughts or emotions? If we were free to be creative. Creativity is courage. The courage to step outside the box, to step outside the norm.

As many of you all know, I love Disney. And when I think of creativity, I can not help but think about Imagineers - their job and their creativity. The difference between the Imagineers and the rest of the world is that they assume they can do what they dream. As Walt Disney once said, “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.”

Let’s always encourage our children to do the impossible and have fun. Never tell them they can’t or won’t. Remember the sky is the limit.
