I’m Not Creative! So Said She (or He)

Remember when you were little and had that GIANT box of Crayola crayons and endless sheets of blank white paper?

Remember how carefree and happy you felt as you drew purple elephants, orange grass, and places no one had ever seen?

What happened?  

For most of us, being creative is a distant memory, and depending on where you’re reading this blog post, you may or may not be tapped into your own creativity any more… you know, that rush to draw and paint and write with abandon…

Why aren’t we all there? Why do adults lose that sense of carefree happiness that comes from creating? Why do adults eliminate creating/making from their lives?

Oh… because we have to ‘adult’ {apparently, now a verb in current vernacular} – all.the.time.

Ummm…. I Don’t Think So.

In fact, I get all outta sorts when I lose creative time to life’s To Do lists!

Balance.

  • Did you know being creative positively influences your health, including the decrease of stress, anxiety, and depression?
  • Did you know being creative increases productivity?
  • Did you know being creative makes you happy – or happier if you’re lucky enough to already be one of those smiling fools.  😉
  • Did you know being creative can be just plain fun??

*Research supports each of the above statements. I wouldn’t make this stuff up, I wouldn’t kid about creativity, and…. I experienced it firsthand, which I shared here on my About page.

Creativity “Loosely” Defined {or Generally Accepted by Those Who Study Such Stuff} is… connecting ideas”

But don’t believe me because I find calm, focus, and fun in writing and ‘arting’ ….  🙂
