Unlimited supply of creativity
"You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have." - Maya Angelou
When I look at the world around me, I see a world that is fertile with diverse and unique expressions and that nature's supply of creative energy is infinite. I am often in awe and humbled by Nature in all it's forms. This planet is prolific with life and so interesting and inspiring! And yet, sometimes I feel creatively blocked or distrustful that I'm creative enough.
For some, creative juices flow like an unstoppable force and many of us find much fulfillment in sharing our creative side. However; many of us believe that creativity is in limited supply or that a select few got the creative genes and the rest of us were skipped. Some of us believe that there are those that are artistic and those that aren't. Some of us deeply long to be creative and/or experience envy over those that freely express themselves. Some feel fearful in expressing themselves, lack confidence or experience other internal blocks.
No matter our beliefs or relationship with our creative side, we are co-creating our lives moment to moment whether we are aware of it or not. We can look to nature to observe the abundant supply of creative resources and to help us step more consciously into the co-creative process. There are so many opportunities we can take at trying our hand at something creative such as cooking, gardening, designing our living space, picking out an outfit, writing, singing, playing an instrument, drawing, crafting etc. We can focus on the process of creating and let go of the outcome. We don't have to be perfect and we don't even have to do it well!
Please join me this week in tapping into the well of creativity within and take opportunities to unleash our creative selves with the attitude that the more we use our creative side, the more we gain! May you have a great week.
