I’m hoping you all had a great weekend! I was speaking with someone over the weekend about being creative and their response to me was “I don’t have a creative bone in my body.” I listened respectfully but I disagreed with them. You see, I used to feel exactly like that. I didn’t think there was anything about me that was creative. I couldn’t draw and there certainly wasn’t anything I was good at. So how could I be creative? There are a lot of definitions of the word “creative” but to define it simply, it means to create.
Maybe you can’t draw but are you that person who is always calm in the midst of chaos? If it’s natural for you to remain calm in those types of environments, then you have the ability to create a peaceful environment. That’s creativity. Maybe you have the gift of making people laugh and creating happiness. That’s creativity. I just think creativity means operating in whatever your gift is. Maybe it’s drawing but maybe it’s not. I encourage you to carry that with you during this week. From this girl who loves wide-legged pants to you: you have something awesome on the inside of you that is called a gift. That’s what makes you creative!
