Developing Creativity

Developing CreativityWhen we were children, we created all the time. We had imaginary friends, we dreamed of adventures.

 

There was always such excitement when you got a new box of crayons. My favorite color was “burnt sienna”.

 

Do you remember yours? Can you remember the feeling?

 

With our adult responsibilities has come a pushing away of our fun, creative nature. Just for today, find a few minutes to create. What you choose to create is not important -– the process of creation is the key. This will release stagnant emotional energy. The creative power of the universe is infinite. The creative power within you also has no limitations.

 

Look for a way to create something unique, something that just springs from you. You do not need to be an artist, a writer or a musician. No one needs to see or hear your “creation”. This is an opportunity to let your imagination go free. The only stipulation is that you release all judgment in the process!

Looking for “Perfection”

I wonder where we got the idea that we have to be “perfect”. Is there even such a thing? Or is that bar constantly being raised so that we never get there?

 

Put simply…are we good enough, perfect enough, even with our imperfections?

 

When we make mistakes, as we surely will, we think that we have failed and that we are not measuring up. Yet we all make mistakes – its part of being human.

 

As one of my clients recently said to me, “That’s why there are erasers on the ends of pencils”. Wise words, indeed.

 

So what can we do to be free of the self critical voice from within that chides us when we make a mistake?

 

  • Remember that you are good enough – just for being you…with all of your strengths and with all of your flaws
  • Remember that your flaws are strengths not yet developed
  • Make a commitment to keep developing your strengths
  • Accept yourself with love and compassion
  • Be patient with yourself
  • Never forget that being imperfect is to be human – embrace this, and go out and live your perfectly, imperfect life with joy.
