You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you’ll have – Maya Angelou.

But, unfortunately, the opposite can also be true – if you don’t use it, you lose it.

We are all born with certain characteristics, traits, and creative tools that make us the unique souls that we are.

This is what we see so prevalently in society today. It starts when we are young; going to school, then through university, a career and all the standard checkpoints imposed on us throughout our adulthood.
