Let us free our creative spirit....
My daughter forwarded to me an email she received from her friend since tertiary days. And I particularly took noticed of this photo, a work of a graphic artist done when she was that bored. How nice it is to see a peeled orange transformed into a form of a frog. How creative that person is!!. Kainggit.
Now we may ask ourselves; "why I am not that creative? Am I creative? "
I just finished reading the book Free Your Creative Spirit by Vivianne and Christopher Crowley. According to them which I fully agree, we are all creative but most of us are unaware of it. To discover your creativity, you must begin with what is inside you. We have to believe that we can do it.
The authors pointed out some things to remember to free your creative spirit that I would like to share here.
Negative thinking is: only special people are creative, I am not a special person. I am not creative. Forget this.
Positive thinking is: humans are an extraordinary species with extraordinary talents. Humans are creative, therefore I am creative. Remember this.
Your inner child holds the key to your creative self; don’t be afraid to play. Once you allow your creative self to play, you will find that you are far more creative than you had imagined.
Give yourself positive experiences of creativity and they will rid you of the memory of the bad ones.
So come on people. Let us explore our own creativity in our daily living….
