Do you consider yourself the creative type?
As I may have mentioned before, I think creating is our birthright.
It seems that we can get off on this important topic when we think that creativity has to look a certain way. For instance, if it needed to involve mod podge (how does one spell that?) or pipe cleaners or plastic canvas, I wouldn’t consider myself creative.
But since creativity is boundless, I am, and you are!
Anything that you can explain by putting ‘creating’ in front of it, counts. Creating order. Creating peace. Creating connections. Creating relationships. Creating a book, or a lesson or a plan or an itinerary works.
How about creating a power point document or a letter or an invitation? Could be creating a party or a tradition or a class or a book club.
And of course we could create a paining or a piece of pottery or jewelry or an afghan or a musical composition!
I think I feel most alive when I am creating. I need to consider ways to be in that space more often! How about you?
I hope you are taking care of yourself. I hope you are breathing deeply and letting go of what you cannot change. I hope you are keeping things simple and not expecting yourself to be superhuman, just enjoying your work and your play, your family and friends. Know I’m cheering for you and praying for your success!
