Would you define yourself as creative?
If you just answered this in your head, was it a big voice that confidently said “Yes!” or a quiet whisper?
Did you hesitate before being able to come up with an answer, or did you just flat out say “No way!”?
I would argue that as humans, we are all creative. It is part of the human experience.
Beyond what is now quickly categorized as “talent” lies a very real connection to other vital functions for us humans.
Creativity, in whatever unique way you express it can:
- Reduce stress levels
- Increase mental focus
- Elevate your mood
- Connect you to your creative community
It also is a product of your brain “having fun”, as Einstein puts it, which I like to think of as your brain trying to process this crazy world in a whimsical way.
So? What are you waiting for? What are you going to create today?
Postcard Project Update:
Some of you may remember my offer to send a hand-sketched postcard to anyone who was a new subscriber to my blog (original post here). I have extended it to all subscribers, you must simply pass on your address to me (I promise not to do anything with your address besides send the postcard ) and wa-la! Postcard will be in the mail.
Send your address to my email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy creating, and I will be posting an update on my #100daysofdozens project very soon. On day fourteen and going strong!
