Creativity is a force moving through us,
and only through practice do we learn
how to cooperate with it. The ‘process’
is like a muscle. It needs to be exercised
in order to function effortlessly.
Our true illiteracy is our
inability to be creatively active.
My creative muse is asleep! It’s time to wake her up, so here we are. I have struggled to find inspiration for my blog. This morning I decided to stop waiting for creative ideas to take hold, and instead, exercise my ‘creativity muscle’ by opening up a new page on Word Press and just put something down on the page and see where it takes me.
Creativity. . . is in reality the ability to
reach inside yourself and drag forth
from your very soul an idea.
I think this is what stops many of us from living a creative life, we don’t know what to do so we don’t do anything. What I’ve come to realize is that it doesn’t so much make a difference what we do to feed our creative spirit, just that we do it.
Creativity is one of the most positive,
life-affirming traits of humanity, and
people in all walks of life report that
they feel at their peak and in flow when
they are being their most creative.
My suggestion for the day: feed your creative spirit.
