To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong. – Joseph Pearce
Each of us is uniquely creative! The benefits of tapping into this gift is up to us and creativity shows itself in a wide range of activities.
The only mistake we can make when it comes to creativity, is to think that we don’t have any.
When I discovered I loved writing, it opened up a whole new world for me and inspired me to expand my life in many directions.
Creativity can help us build better relationships too. Imagining how things look through another person’s eyes can enhance our empathy and understanding. Deciding to try a different way of responding to those around us when someone irritates or annoys us, is a creative way to avoid difficulties. Seeing a way through a difficult time also takes creativity.
Studies of people who practice creativity found that they stayed healthier longer and enjoyed health more, had fewer visits to health care providers, used fewer medications, were more outgoing, had higher moral, and were more socially active, less lonely, and more optimistic. It makes us more resilient, helping us live more vividly in the moment, and, at the same time, more connected to the world.
Sounds like a good reason to be creative today!
