I have often wondered how folk manage who do not have a hobby and how would I have ever managed over the years without mine. So much research has come to the fore in recent years showing the health benefits of creative hobbies. There is so much satisfaction in completing something creative and so long as you the creator are happy with it then that is the main thing.
A few years ago a friend commented to me how her young daughter had made something at school with clay but she was very upset as she was unable to bring it home to her mummy as her teacher did not think it was good enough and destroyed it. Fortunately in this case this little girls mother recognised the effect this could have on her daughter and was able to praise her none the less. How many creative people over the years have been stopped in their tracks just because of someone else’s notion something was not good enough. We all have our own tastes but the joy and benefits to someone who creates can outweigh the views of others. Happy creating.
