Let Us Remain Artists

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”

-Pablo Picasso

When we were young each of us held a certain sense of creativity and artistic flare. In a sense, as the saying goes the world was our oyster. And then for some reason, whether it be some unforeseen events or just us growing up we may have misplaced those two qualities along the way. These by no means are gone forever as they still live inside us. In today’s quote artist Pablo Picasso says each child is an artist and what the challenge is to remain an artist when we grow up. It is our decision to make whether it remains within us or fades away.

We need to try and bring our this artistic ability through what interests us like when we were young. Tap into those skillsets that you once had and make them come alive once again. It can happen if we choose to do so. Like I mentioned before, it is never truly gone as it just may have been buried deep. We still have creativity inside of each of us so let us tap into that artistic ability and do something wonderful that will have a positive impact on the world. The world could use more artists for sure and it starts with us.

What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards developing your responsible decision making skills?
