Creativity is a form of expression and releasing it naturally feels great. Nothing feels more satisfying than something you’ve created with your own hands. When you create something, it doesn’t matter what form or shape it takes, it doesn’t matter if you’re the only one who understands its meaning. What matters is that it expresses feelings from within yourself (be it pain, happiness, anger, excitement, sorrow or anything in between) and that it serves to either relax or invigorate you, often giving birth to new ideas that could very realistically change your life for the better.
I understand we all live busy lives but if you’re really honest with yourself, you could make room for some creativity. If you refuse to let your creative side express itself, you’re limiting your potential for growth. The only real way for you to understand just how much creativity could improve your life (at work, home and socially), is by trying it out!
It could be anything that interests you! Scrapbooking, writing, drawing, knitting, singing, dancing, music, gardening, cooking, whatever it is, as long as you’re using your imagination.
In my case web design served as a form of creative release and kept me sane during my nursing days. It became such a huge influence in my life that it became a full-time career and I was able to walk away from nursing completely, unlike most burnt out nurses who believe they have little choice but to stay in a career that’s no longer doing it for them.
Perhaps if I can’t convince you that being creative is a vital part of your very nature, nature itself could convince you…check out these creative creatures!
If that doesn’t inspire you to get off the couch and do something creative, then I don’t know what will!
