“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”- Maya Angelou
On a recent trip to Washington, DC, there were many things I enjoyed; the food, the people, the sites and the creative inspiration that was evident everywhere I looked. For example, we came upon a man who had turned commercial sized paint cans into a drum set and was entertaining the people who walked by and earning money from his creativity.
Most people do not see themselves as creative. When we as a group think of someone as creative we tend to think of singers, dancers, artists, writers, and musicians. But being a creative person includes these talents and so much more.
You can be creative in your parenting, in how you dress, how you decorate your home and in your ability to problem solve. Creativity can also be expressed through the beautiful gardens you grow and the mouth-watering meals you cook.
Even when pursuing your God-inspired dreams creativity is needed. There may be times when out the box thinking is required in order to take your dreams to the next level.
What are some other ways creativity is expressed? What are some childhood memories do you have that reflect how you expressed your creative self. Do you even see yourself as a creative person?
These are some of the questions in the July edition of the Pen*Paper*Write Journaling Series. Every month we explore different themes aimed at helping you to connect deeper to yourself and to your God-inspired dreams. Join us this month as we explore what it looks and feels like to be Creative.
