“Am I creative??” – I posed this question to friends and family members and see what they have to say:
Husband: “Of course you are dear!!! You make so many creative faces when we fight…I love them all!!”
Son: “What is creativity amma? I don’t understand!!” and when I try explaining him “Yeah, you are….All the boring stories you tell me while feeding me”
Mom: “Yes dear, you are creative. You find so many creative reasons for unnecessary shopping and wasting money”
Brother: “U and creativity?? Some how blogging came through otherwise you are so boring!!” and when I give a stern look, his answer immediately changes to “ You are the best creative sister I have ever seen!!”
Boss: “Yes Madhavi. You are very creative in coming up with a new reason every time for the mistakes in the reports. I appreciate your creativity.”
So, finally I understand the extent of my creativity and amicably start my self introspection. How creative have I been ?
- I have been very creative in making tasty as well as healthy dishes for my son
- I have been creative in all school projects I did for myself as well as for my lazy brother
- I have been creative in handling tough situations both at work and at home
- I have been creative in using spare time for blogging, baking, gardening
- I have been creative in practicing up-cycling
Creativity lies within us. Many a time, we do not ( at least I did not) persuade it with the fear of losing continuity, lack of losing interest, undefined priorities.
Let us look at some inspiring quotes:
“Clean out a corner in your mind and creativity with instantly fill in” – Dee hock
“Creativity is intelligence having fun” – Einstein
“Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing,taking risks, breaking rules,making mistakes and having fun” – Mary Lou Cook
These are some of the thoughts that can directly be applied to our day to day life. Creativity, I am sure will make us more happier as we enjoy the fruits of accomplishment. Let us get creative, create passions and persuade!! Do you agree?
