Why do you create?

    Why do you create?

    Whether you are a writer, videography, cook, artist, etc there seems to be an innate need to create something that was not there before in all of us. Why do you create? Is it for personal satisfaction, to help some else, to make the world a better place? Or some other reason.

    Creation is what makes us dynamic living beings. We thrive on creation that reflects our outlook to the world and its an opportunity to open ourselves to the world. When we create we show others that they too can follow in our footsteps and create the live that they want through their actions and creations. Creations and creativity is what sets apart from one another and also brings us together as a whole. We learn to appreciate the strengths and insights of one another. To create is to live and to create satisfaction from within. We create also for the love of others; to share our works with the world.

    I write to vent out what is inside my mind... Writing helps me clear my own doubts and analyse myself better with the help of constructive feedback by self and others.

    I also write to share my philosophies and look for people who share the same!

    I love to create things because it satisfies me to see the results and if I like my work I will attempt to sell my painting or craft work.

    There a couple of reasons for me. 

    First, I've always had a problem with self-esteem.  It was particularly bad after I graduated from college where I felt like I was ready to give up on finding any real talent and thus finding anything of self-worth.  I felt like I wasn't good at anything, so I felt ashamed of my existence. Writing is my creation of thoughts that no one else thought me how to express but me.  When I've shared my writing with readers, they often say that I share my thoughts with great passion and inspiration.  Finally, I finally found something I'm good at doing.

    That leads me to my second reason.  I want to use creative thinking and writing to express my thoughts to the world.   I'm hoping in some way my words will help someone in some way.  Perhaps there's a lesson I can teach them about living a good life or just helping a reader know about something they didn't know about before.  In other words, my writing has helped me feel a lot better about myself over the years, so I'm hoping in some way it'll do the same for someone else.
