Don’t Just Observe

It’s easy to observe. It’s easy to scroll through the Facebook news feed or turn on the television. It’s easy to sit by and watch and consume what other people create. In fact, the creators want us to consume what others are creating. That’s how they make money.

But we were meant to be creators. If you ask kids in preschool how many of them are artists, every one of them will raise their hands. If you ask kids in the sixth grade how many of them are artists, only a couple brave ones will.

What happened? We’ve been taught to observe. But today, I’m committing to create.
