Creativity is an electrifying force that defines,
shapes, and initiates new ways of being,
seeing and transforming the world.
Creativity is an endlessly reusable resource,
and we can tap into it at any time.
Creativity, which is the expression of our originality,
helps us stay mindful that what we bring to the world
is completely original and cannot be compared.
Conditions for creativity are to be puzzled;
to concentrate; to accept conflict and tension;
to be born everyday; to feel a sense of self.
Confession time – I live where inspiration for creativity abounds, but still have trouble ‘finding’ the time to sit down in my sunroom/studio (which, by the way, is inspiring in itself) to create. I’m dabbling in drawing, painting, beading, collaging, knitting and writing and when I take the time to do any one of these things I’m a happy camper. And yet, I allow so many other things to take precedent over these activities that feed my soul. It’s time to change my priorities and schedule in time every day, whether it’s 15 minutes or three hours, to explore my creative yearnings. Life is too short to wait around for the ‘perfect’ time to do the things that nurture my sense of aliveness.
