Do You Have a Creativity Scar?

When you can’t fall asleep what do you do? 💤

🎧I listen to something, usually an audiobook.

Last week I was listening to Brene Brown’s the Power of Vulnerability, and I even though I was almost off to dream land she said something that made me sit up in bed and make note of the timestamp so I could revisit in the morning. (Any Brene Brown fans in the crowd? Let me know so we can geek out together)

85% of people remember something SO shaming that happening in school that it forever changed how they thought of themselves as learners.

🎭 About HALF of those experiences are what Brene calls “creativity scars” which is something like writing, art, drama, etc.

I’ve been talking about these types of childhood experiences A LOT of podcasts in the last few months and I’m sad to say that it’s backed up by Brene’s research.

If you believe you aren’t creative, is this why?

🧑🏼‍🎨 A huge percentage of us are walking around with a creativity scar. I even have one and I had to work extremely hard to rewrite the belief that came my experience as a 9 year old where I was told that I was painting “wrong”

  1. I truly admired the work you’ve put in here. The design is refined, your authored material stylish, however, you seem to have acquired some trepidation about what you intend to present next. Undoubtedly, I’ll revisit more regularly, similar to I have nearly all the time, in the event you sustain this rise.

  2. What a fantastic resource! The articles are meticulously crafted, offering a perfect balance of depth and accessibility. I always walk away having gained new understanding. My sincere appreciation to the team behind this outstanding website.
