You Are Creative!

Everyone is creative.  You may say, but I am not creative - AT ALL!  Your creativity is there somewhere inside of you; lonely, neglected and longing for some recognition.  Let's help that little guy out and give him some friends.

Maybe you just haven't discovered what your creativity is.  I do not draw very well and you do NOT want to hear me sing, but I am still creative.  I like to do paper crafting and art journaling and just recently discovered I like writing. Hence this blog. <wink>

There are so many things you could be creative at:

  • Writing
  • Crafting
  • Sewing
  • Cooking
  • Dancing
  • Singing
  • Painting
  • Organizing
  • Inventing
  • Connections
  • And many more
And creativity isn't just about making something and selling it.  It can be, but it doesn't have to be.  Creativity is for you.  It is to help you feel inspired, happy, challenged and fulfilled.  It can be something you share with the world or something that you keep just for yourself. What is important is that you do what makes you happy. Let that little guy out!

Don't worry if what you saw in your mind is not what came out in the end product. Creativity is a process.  It is about trying, failing, learning, discovery and fun.  And when you are frustrated just remember the famous words from Thomas Edison - 
"I have not failed.  I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work"

I believe that the more you use your creativity the more it will grow and blossom! I am looking forward to coming up with some creativity challenges for us.

I, personally, am going to use a bit of my creativity to try and figure out how to customize this blog.  I am a long time reader; first time blogger .  I have no clue but I am going to keep at it and make it all purty as I go.
