The Art of Creativity
‘You cannot use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have’. ~ Maya Angelou
We all have the gift of creativity, it’s a seed planted within us waiting for the opportunity to emerge and transform into anything we choose.
‘We are all creative beings.’ ~Maya Fiennes
The journey to discover your own personal creativity can be an endless one that takes you along many different paths as the seed emerges and grows into countless different forms, Express your personal creativity, feels its power and allow it to be unleashed and developed into something of beauty and wonder. Why not begin by becoming the best version of yourself, allow your own personal style to lead the way.
‘Creative people do not see things for what they are – they see them for what they can be.’ ~ Julie Israel.
Everything on this planet is a creation, a wonderful and often mysterious form of existence that is a marvellous way to become inspired. Creativity surrounds us in nature, we simply need to observe the beauty, feel the inspiration and let your imagination take you on an amazing journey.
Be creative within your own home, how you place and display items with imagination, grouping the paintings on your walls, the colours carefully chosen to match or clash, arranging a vase of flowers, art on your place and creating wonderful food to eat are all ways to show your creative side. Expand your thoughts and let your mind be creative.
Outside the home. Everything that is made is created to be aesthetically pleasing ….. in architecture, in construction, in design, in music, in business – logos and letterheads, in poetry and fiction, in sculpture and art, in cooking and baking, the list goes on. Creativity is the ability to transform a vision into reality through inspiration, often requiring pure dedication.
The essence is to create beauty around you, being eccentric, different, finding your own unique style, leaving your own footprint on this planet by truly expressing yourself. Be creative in a way that benefits and inspires, be passionate and encouraging, dream big, allow the depths of your soul to surface. Always aim for creativity in your life and make it your own, there is no such thing as failure with creativity.
‘An essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail.’ ~ Dr. Edwin Land
Never cease to admire and absorb the creativity around you by using all your senses and allow them to inspire you. Follow your vision, be creative, make a difference whether it be to your immediate surroundings or to the world.
‘You were born an original. Do not die a copy.’ ~ John Mason
