Creativity is contagious.
I am not always creative. My life constantly alternates between creative overflow and creative drought. Balance is never in my vocabulary.
There is no such thing as un-creative, only uninspired. I find myself being too busy to be creative. Too busy being a wife, being a mom, being a baker. Sometimes also squeezing in being a creative person, is difficult. Time to stand still and find inspiration is unheard of. I seldom get the time to pay attention, which leads to me overlooking inspiration. I sometimes feel like being creative just adds to the pressure of everyday life - it may even feel like effort. Truth is, when you get started it is a pressure reliever.
For too long I have been trying to divide myself into all these different pieces to fit into every role. Now I know, being creative is not a purpose on it's own. I have to find a way to incorporate my creativity into everything I already am. I realize that choosing a color for my living room and where I place the utensils in my kitchen is already an expression of my creativity.
Inspiration is everywhere, you just have to look. It is said that some merely gaze upon something, while others see the wonder in it. Pay attention - do not let it pass you by. Even though getting creative may feel like effort, you just have to jump over the first hurdle and see how it unfolds into being a therapeutic experience. What is better than having therapy as part of your everyday life?
Remember: Creativity is contagious! We are forever emitting sparks of imagination, so let's spark together.
