Creativity - Your Way

Creativity - Your Way

There's the old saying that everyone has a book in them, waiting to be written. While I'm not sure that's true - not everyone wants to be a writer, after all - I think everyone has the ability to be creative. I would even go so far as to say creativity is part of who we are as human beings.

Creativity comes in many forms. Some of us are sculptors, painters, writers, poets, or song writers. There's scrapbooking, photography, crafting, woodworking ... the list goes on and on. Being creative is a way to let your mind run free. It's both relaxing and invigorating. And, even if you don't see yourself in any of the aforementioned creative categories I listed, I'm willing to bet you're still a creative person. Some people use creativty in their jobs - landscapers, architects, engineers, for example. And, then there's some common hobbies such as gardening, sewing, and knitting that require creativity.

If you've always wanted to try your hand at writing, painting, or some other artistic pursuit, what's stopping you? Don't worry about whether or not you'll be any good at it. The whole point of trying something new is to see if you like it. If you enjoy it, that's all that matters, Don't let anyone discourage you from being creative or expressing yourself.

Be creative - YOUR WAY!

    1. Thanks, Joleene! You are one of the most creative people I know. I hope you keep on creating for a LONG time!

  2. Our innate creativity adds another dimension along life's journey.

  3. Spot on, Tricia. I meet many people and most have a tale to tell. I suggest they write it down even in note form. I'm always delighted when they, or their family, tell me about the story. Rick Haynes

  4. This is so true. Preparing a nice meal or baking a cake requires some creativity. Decorating your home, gardening and hanging pictures, all are creative activities. Everyone is creative, they just don't recognize it.
