Confidently Creative Adults
The monsters made me do it LOL
I had my She-Rex Podcast up for about 4 weeks, and the creative monsters that live within me were getting super restless, they have been begging to be let out forever, then they resorted to banging on the door... they they finally threw a coup... and busted the door down.
So we've made some changes, starting with the Podcast:
There are 4 categories of creative monsters (that I know of):
1) The "Crazy Creatives" have ALL.OF.THE.ENERGY... and as soon as they ran out, they started getting into EVERYTHING... rolling down the hills, climbing all of the trees, opening all kinds of doors and letting other monsters out to play... They were also the muscle behind the coup.
2) There are those that are just elated not to be stuck in the room with the overly energized monsters, they take everything at a little bit of slower pace, and love being in nature!! They have spread out, finding a nice patch of grass to lay down in and watch the clouds floating by; they are taking their shoes off to wade in the water; and walking in the woods just to experience life as they've only imagined... These are the "Heartfelt Creatives".
3) Then there are the "Smart Creatives"... they've been working in the back back corner of my mind for the last 7 years... waiting for that door to open and let them out.... they have plans. They are actually the brains behind the coup. They are the ones that decided it was time to start showing up in full force.
4) And we can't forget the pups... but I don't think these are monsters, I think they are just the "Research Hounds"... they go digging on behalf of the Smart Creatives... or Curiosity... to find as much as they can on any given topic.
The Creative Monsters have been locked away in a room inside my brain for a long time by the LOGIC aliens... they had invaded my brain, and had me under a spell. A spell that made me believe that I could only do what would be accepted by society... and the LOGIC of that has been holding me hostage.
After the creative monsters escaped The logically aliens have tried to hypnotize me again, but the Smart Creatives have been drinking their protein shakes, and they are ready to fight logic with logic.
The logical aliens say things like, "Society won't understand, people will think you're weird if you show all of your creativity"
And the Smart Creatives stand tall and proud, and retort, "Don't you think they thought the same things about Dr. Seuss, Walt Disney, and Neil Gaiman??"
And the Aliens scoff, "HA!! You can't really be comparing yourself to the GREATS... the Godfathers of Imagination and Creativity??!?? Who do you think you are?!?"
Meanwhile, the Logical Aliens haven't noticed, but the Crazy Creatives have calmed down and joined ranks with the Smart Creatives, and the Heartfelt Creatives have taken up a position behind the Aliens.
As the aliens stand so smug, the creative monsters fully encircle and link arms around the aliens... there is a clicking noise that is like chain clinking together. And then they wait... they stand tall, and sure... and it's the Heartfelt Creatives that speak, as one, in unison, "We will not be intimidated by your lack of vision & heart. We will not be moved... We can be anything that we want to be... and So can you."
The smallest Crazy Creative who hasn't hit his growth spurt yet, yells, "We will not go back into hiding... we were sent here to bring joy."
And with that, the head Smart Creative, and the head Logical Alien decided it was time to have a lunch date. To decide how the Aliens could still stay and play too.
