Be Creative… #You Are Creative

Just as the old saying goes “variety is the spice of life”, One way to be sure to enjoy today and look forward to the future is to add a healthy dose of creativity and variety to your daily life. I have come to realize that the pressures of work, family, and other commitments often pull us towards a routine in which we simply try to get it all done.

I want to encourage you not to let the routine become too routine “if you know what I mean”. Too many times and days of doing the same thing the same way at the same time can drain the joy from your life and lead to monotony.

All of us know people we would refer to as “creative”. They can paint, draw, write, take beautiful photographs, compose or play music, or even decorate. Usually when we think of creative people, we think creative are those who are artistically gifted. But I believe everyone is creative in some way. We may not all know what to do with a piano or a paintbrush, but God has given each of us a measure of creativity.

For example, a business man’s creativity may express itself through unusual distribution systems or the ability to form successful strategic partnerships that never occurred to anyone else. A graduate student’s creativity may lie in the ability to analyze a work of literature or a historical event from a perspective not explored before. A sales woman may demonsrate creativity by thinking of new and different ways people can use the product she sells.

A teacher’s creativity can be seen as she helps one student learn by listening to stories, while realizing another will learn better just by looking at pictures. Creativity expresses itself in many wonderful ways from one person to the next. God is infinitely creative and he designed every person on earth with some level of creativity.

You only live once my friend, don’t be drawn into a mundane, ordinary existence. Add some spice to your life by being creative and do all you can to keep your life fresh, vibrant and fun. Be spontaneous, smile, laugh so hard, dance even if no music is playing (smiles..). Live life passionately because life without passion is much life at all.

  1. totally agree! I grew up with the notion that only artistic people are…well….creative, but creativity is everywhere! In the tiniest things we do, we can find a way to express creativity. And I also realized, that it is not necessary to be talented in order to paint, write, sing, dance….when you are doing it for yourself and your own expression. It certainly develops something in you. My neighbors certainly don’t need to hear me sing lol, but it makes me happy and I do it when no one hears. It is safer this way ;). I had a similar post about creativity in an old and long gone blog of mine. And yet again I meet the right idea about creativity! Cheers! 🙂 )))


  2. A nice post again by gold finger in Africa, routine is similar to underlying depression in day day, routine is a ghost in the modern time where Death Star is nearest to you, love small details and changing my day activities in order to changing robot mode in my life , besides new creative therapies are welcome as music, literature so on and I don’t strive with my shadow , my Darth Vader 😈😈😈😈


  3. Smiles…you are not alone Ma’am. I dance when no one is watching and I create new dancing steps for my eyes alone. Hopefully someday I will show it off lol.
    Thank you very much for your timely contributions. It’s very thoughtful of you to share. 💞


  4. Great post. Thank you for the reminder about creativity. I often envy those who can play the piano, yet realise that I can make my own music! Creativity as you so rightly say is within us all.
