"I believe the more you are like society, the less you impact it." -Howard Hendricks

Feeling pressure to be normal?  Are you influenced by what people might think about you?  Are you intimidated by the look of another person who thinks you are out to lunch?

Consider this:
1.  High levels of creativity are linked to high amounts of extra available energy.
2.  High levels of extra available energy are linked to having fun.
3.  High levels of fun are linked to being a kid.
4.  Being a kid means that you run with the moment.....
jump with a bounce...
follow your curiosity.....
laugh out loud...
are spontaneous...
explore life......
So maybe you have gotten the impression that the child in you is supposed to grow up.  The Puritans believed that also.  They maintained that having fun and being spontaneous were definite sins.
Your differences are what make you special, and if others think you aren't normal...celebrate!
Here is my progress on one of the paintings I shared earlier:

"I have touched with a sense of art some people – they felt the love and the life. Can you offer me anything to compare to that joy for an artist?"    Mary Cassatt
