Excuse the language 🙈Apparently my inner creativity self has a foul mouth and knows no bounds! 😈 This quote just came to me and I had to have a stab at creating my very own Quote Picture/Word Art. I was inspired after listening to Brene Brown on how unused creativity is dangerous, and there are people out there that will purposely shame you to make themselves feel good.
🎬 At the cinema. Both my hands are full holding the all important film sustenance (nachos, Pepsi, popcorn, etc).
I get to the door of the cinema screen. Hmm did not think this through. Can not open the door. I stand there helplessly whilst thinking of a balancing act strategy.
Luckily I see a couple coming. I do my best puppy dog eyes, and look at them, then the door and then my hands holding the cinema snacks. For some reason I am doing the whole thing in silence – as if I’m in a Charlie Chaplin movie.
The guy valiantly opens the door for me. I thank him profusely. He now looks like a hero in front of his girlfriend. He can thank me later.
I walk down the stairs and I’m praying there’s not another set of doors. There is. Crap.
They’re trailing quite far behind me.
I now stand helplessly (again) in front of the second set of doors. The guy then has to do the quick run (the run people do when you keep holding the door open behind you – but they are too far away – so they have to quicken their step – and you’re a jerk for making them run for no reason).
Anyways, he again graciously opens the door for me.
Me: “Sorry, I’m being a total princess – demanding you now open all the doors for me!”
We all chuckled.
Inspired by books that encourage being creative (namely How To Steal Like An Artist and Show Your Work by Austin Kleon), and psychologist Brene Brown on the benefits of being creative, and watching the inspirational and captivating YouTube videos of philosopher/film maker Jason Silva, I felt the desire to have a go at trying to create something.
This is my first attempt.
I love those quote pictures that you see on Facebook, and love short prose, so I wanted to have a dab at trying to write something myself.
