I have always felt that there are people in the world that are either creative or analytical (logical reasoning). If you think about it, not just the artists, musicians, and performers are creative people...but also the construction workers, the interior designers, and even teachers. When I was younger, my art classes, writting, and psychology came easy to me; i didn't have to try hard to do well. But, because I'm stubborn and like to take on the challenges in life that are the hardest = greater victories, I decided to look further in business. I felt like my brain hurt studying for theses classes because using the right side of my brain (creative) came much more natural than the left. Through this experience I realize that people have the capacity to be both analytical and creative. It's just a matter of doing what makes you happy and the more we exercise either the creative or structured side of ourselves will lead us to a potential we never knew we had. Moral of the story, it takes staying dedicated and practice to see the beauty that's inside us all:)

I just got done watching a great movie this weekend and can't help myself but to share it. Anyone that knows me would say I may be crossing the line of watching a few too movies in my time. I find the movies I love the most are independent films that capture the essence of "reality"; meaning the good and the bad of any perspective. A movie I just watched, not recommended for children, was August:Osage County, in theaters now. The reason I like it is not for the use of language, or hard to watch family dynamics, but for the honesty and thought provoking way it left me when it ended. I left the theater thinking about the "normal" of every family. How we grow up and the ways we were raised tend to carry over into the next generation of children we have. I notice all the time things my grandparents do that my parents immulated in my upbringing, the things I love. I find it so fascinating! Each family has a history, a story, a reality that shaped...YOU.
Here are some pictures below from the movie: August Osage County, a family that you could say are insane. One person's way of doing things that seems different, may be another's comfort. Watching the movie I realize the missing ingredient is clear...the glue that keeps families together is God. Without him, I can't imagine.
