Be Creative

Without the crowds adulation would an artist play, write or create?

A true artist, writer, musician or other creative person will always create with or without the crowd, as it is an inherent need within them to do so. For some they have to write, they have always a note book to record thoughts, others take photographs of things they wish to paint. What ever the method the creative person is always looking for an outlet for the gifts they have within them.

What are your creative gifts?

Don’t limit yourself to thinking about poetry, music, art or dance. What do you do that you find releases your creative flow?

Carpenters love to create fine furniture. gardeners love to grow vegetables or flowers, some people love to create and organize large events.

Being creative allows you do realize what you are good at and are passionate about, it is an important factor of a successful life.

Be creative, innovative, imaginative, think, dream, sing, dance, move, knit, sew, cook, it is within the capacity of every person to be creative at some level. It is what we are meant to be.

Be creative today, start doing something, anything, but allow yourself to be creative today.

  1. Hi Paul

    Enjoying your blog. Your thoughts on creativity are great. It’s amazing how creative you can be with almost nothing. In fact when you have almost nothing, creativity is the best thing you can have 🙂

    Keep up the great work.

    Cheers, David

  2. It’s true that it’s a great thing to be creative and keep the creative flow going, but sometimes it’s good to just sit back and enjoy life. Rather than viewing everything as something that can be used in a poem or painting it’s good to just let some things go and enjoy them for just what they are, without sharing them or making them your own. A sunset sometimes may simply be a sunset.

  3. When I tried to answer the question of “where did my creativity come from’, only then did it come to me, from deprivation. Needing to be creative solved the gifting dilemna, the making money dilemnas.From the age of about 12, creativity has gifted me with answers and sanity! I love what you have to say. Thank you, Vickie

  4. Yes, I completely agree with your article! Being creative can help relieve stress, so I try to do at least one creative thing each day. And you’re right – there are so many ways to get creative. Great post!
