Express your Creativity: Delight in the mystery of your inner muse!

Creativity to some is as natural as breathing, to others as unlikely as seeing a pig fly. I am one that is naturally creative. I love to figure out new ways to do things; an “out of the box” thinker if you will. But there are others in my family that are the “go the refrigerator, get the meat” types. I believe that deep down, they are creative, they just haven’t found what source of creativity delights them. Or, maybe they have had their creativity quelled when they were younger, and have been reluctant to re-explore their inner muse ever since.

So, how do you rediscover your creativity? Well, start with thinking about the things that you like to do. Things that come easily without much effort of your part. Some find their creativity in music, some with art, some with dance and some, like me, with writing. Your creativity could express itself through sports, scrapbooking - even playing games.

When my son was younger, he felt he was not very creative. However, if you have ever played Rumikub with him you would describe him otherwise. He is the only person I have ever seen who will rearrange the entire board just to get rid of one tile!! He could “see” the board in ways the rest of us could not – now that is creative!!

So what is it for you? Food styling? Making up songs? Fashion? Look to what you love to do and I’ll just bet that some creative part of you is involved. Find your inner muse and delight in the mystery of expressing your creativity. If nothing else, it’s fun!!

Here’s to your success and happiness! - Susan
