I have been part of the Philippine arts and crafts/handmade community for over five years now, and being surrounded by people who love building things from scratch and maing stuff with their own hands, it is hard for me to imagine a world that is not ruled by makers. Many of them have become my mentors, and if there’s one thing I’ve learned from my time spent with them, it’s to dream big and trust that I have what it takes to make my dreams come true.
This is the inspiration behind my entry for @GetCraft’s “When Creators Rule The World” challenge. When the world is run by people with boundless creativity and drive, I imagine it would be easier to believe and trust in your ideas, to be brave in seeing them through, to be patient when they don’t work, and to be resilient and try again. When the world is full of people who are pushing boundaries day in and day out, it would be easier follow your dreams, make your own path, and find others who are willing to support you.
We all have this desire to change the world or, at the very least, make a difference. I have come to realize that these big things come from the little things, from very humble beginnings. When the seed is planted in us—the seed of dreaming, believing, and doing—we will all be capable of making big changes in the world around us.
