“Start writing, not matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.”
– Louis L’Amour
Creativity is something that lives in all of us.
From childhood to adulthood, we are born to have our own ideas, independent thoughts, awareness and creative imagination. It is when we decide to shut that off, for whatever reason, that we stop ourselves from becoming something outside of ourselves.
Creativity is not limited.
It is whatever you make it. A lot of people are skewed by the term. They see it as a talent, like painting, sculpting, playing or writing music, etc. You can be a creative by being a mathematician. A humanitarian. A scientist. You can create by doing or giving others the chance to experience what they might never have the change to experience on their own.
“Creative thinking inspires ideas. Ideas inspire change.” – Barbara Januszkiewicz
Creativity is a natural human phenomenon. So many people think it is just for children. That once we are old enough to live on our own, handle our own finances and start molding our own lives outside of the protection of our parents, we need to let it go. Why?
If Albert Einstein decided to abandon his creative thinking, would we have the theory of relativity?
If Mary Shelley decided stop thinking outside the box, would we have the Frankenstein novel?
If Steve Jobs saw a computer and thought they could only be used for one purpose, would we have Apple Inc?
The answer is simply no. Every accomplishment, every theory & invention, every dot of paint on canvas or ink on paper, comes from our creative minds. So let’s stop suppressing it and embrace it.
Nurture it and give it life.
Be the creative thinker because it’s what makes us human. Don’t be gray and rigid in a world full of color and fluidity.
