OK, maybe lie is too strong of a word. Misconception–Misguided idea–Incorrect idea. Those sound nicer, don’t you think?
What’s the lie? It’s a lie that so many of us tell ourselves–I’M NOT CREATIVE! Usually followed by I WISH I WERE BUT I’M JUST NOT.
Not true! Not true! Not true!
How do I know that it’s not true? Because we were all created in God’s image and God is the ultra-creator, right. So…if we’re created in his image then that means we must be creative as well!
I used to say those very same words! And now if you check my Amazon page, you’ll see lots of books with my name on them. If you walk around my house or family’s houses there’s several paintings with my name on them.
So you see, I was wrong and so are you if you say those words. We often limit our idea of creativity to the “arts,” meaning music, literature or art. But that’s also a lie! There’s all sorts of ways to be creative.
YOUR TURN: Please share some ways you’re creative with my readers. Thanks!
GOD BLESS & GOOD READING!
I love that–thinking broadly in small matters infuses creativity into everyday life! That’s so true.
We have tons of opportunity to be creative. Finding ways to recycle/upcycle throw away stuff, just flipping the seat cushions to the other side with a new design can give a fresh feeling. Sometimes, t’s just thinking broadly in small matters that infuses creativity into everyday life. Thanks for the encouragement. Cheers
