Being Creative

We all need to be creative and I think it is linked to our feelings of well being. It has been said that one of the greatest accomplishments is to create life. But there is more from the moment we wake in the morning we start a new day, which is an act of creation in itself. However, we might soon get weighed down by the mundanities of recurrent tasks. Going to work and maybe there seems to be no room for being creative. We perform repetitive tasks that seem a long way away from being creative. So how can we change?

Instead of getting up at the same time get up half an hour earlier and you now have 30 minutes to play with.  Maybe use this time to make a change in your habits, perhaps walk a bit extra to the next bus stop, look around and start noticing things. The world is full of riches if you start looking; if you start paying attention.

“While you are piecing together the map of your life,

stepping as nimbly as you can out of the mulch

of your thoughts, the busy traffic of your heart

while you attempt grace and magic and the blessing of

your soft surrendered kiss, while you are fathoming the stretch

you will need for the wide and rocky jungle of your own happiness,

while you are hunkering down to a piece of the dark break

and the odd, welcome relief of hunger,

don’t forget to write.”

 “If you treat an individual as he is, he will remain how he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be.”

Goethe
