May 28 – Creativity Can be Endless

In a book entitled, The 12 Secrets of Highly Creative Women: A Portable Mentor, Gail McMeekin writes “Creative women are innovators - they manifest the new. They dare to believe in their insights, to intuit the next step, and to take risks, even if it means getting lost or being wrong. You too can participate in creative expression and share your personal talents. You are an original; therefore, your inspirations are original as well.”

Creativity begins with something that appeals to us and comes as simple as in the form of an idea. More often than not, we think that creativity is synonymous with being artistic such as, a painter, a dancer or a musician. If we are none of those, then we abandon our impulses. I think however, that creativity is something that you love to do and you personalize it with your signature – your personal style. More importantly though, how do you respond to an inspiration when it calls on you? If you choose to embrace your feeling and follow it, then you essentially unleash energy to it and your own creativity will be born.

As women, we owe it to ourselves to wake the sometimes dormant sides of our spirits so that our creativity can soar. When we find the time in an otherwise chaotic lifestyle to recognize our creativity, we are lead into a beautiful phase of self-expression, involvement and fulfillment.

I can go on about this subject but I think that Maya Angelou sums it up best, “We need to remember that we are all created creative and can invent new scenarios as frequently as they are needed.”

I invite you to share your stories of creativity and even inspire the next woman to unleash hers.
