Your Brand of Creativity

Creativity has been given an exceedingly narrow definition in our society.  When we think of 0af4c5bcreative people in history, images of music or the pastels of Monet and Renoir come to mind.  Creativity is not that complicated.

Creativity is allowing us to “Play.”  It is a unique expression of what we are drawn to.   For example, there is no such thing as a ‘computer nerd’. The Computer is the palette just like the piano is for the musician or the canvas is for the painter.  It is what we do with it that matters.

The truth however, is that each of us has a creative piece inside of us.  It is important to know that creativity is not merely confined to the arts.  What about the inventor of the answering machine or the cheese grater? And how about everyday creative feats such as concocting a new recipe or dealing with a particularly tricky situation at work in an innovative way?  Creative capacities are expressed in a myriad of ways.

Music, theatre, and visual art are not the only forum for creative expression. Computer technology, electronics, and mathematics are areas where creative individuals express themselves everyday.  They are at “play” when they work!  The encouragement and acceptance of ‘freethinking’ in all areas can help everyone in society realize and appreciate their own creative potential!

Take a moment to think about you as the “Creative Artist” of your Life…what are YOU up to?
