Creative Every Day

I am writing this for my friend, Kathy. She has had some major stress lately...busy job, sick mom, her own physical pain. When I read this quote, I thought instantly of her. It comes from a unique website - You should visit. I found it in a unique magazine - Artful Blogging. You should read it even if you don't care about blogging, because the stories and photos are inspiring.

So, now the quote: "Explore the possibilities for creativity in [your] everyday life - whether that be through painting, cooking, putting an outfit together, singing, gardening, doodling, or playing with the kids...everyone is creative and we enjoy life more when we allow ourselves to play with creativity in everything we do."

Think about how much creativity you have. Do you sing in the shower? That's it! Do you play word games in the car with your child? Creative!! Do you use your imagination while driving or running or doing the laundry? See! I told you - creativity is in all of us and we need to recognize it so we never feel a day is wasted or that we are falling short.

Tell me what creative thing you did today. I wore shoes that matched my clothes!

  1. Thank you for that quote. "Creative" is not a word I would ever use to describe myself, but after reading what you wrote--maybe I am.

    While I put on make-up and get ready, Rainer sits up on the sink and watches me. We have an old air freshener with diffuser sticks that he likes to play with. While he sits there he puts the sticks in, one by one, and counts them. He can get to three by himself, sometimes four and sometimes five, but I help him with the rest.
