Be Creative!

[A flower that my cousin made out of blue duct tape! Placed on his ukulele]

Creativity is something that allows us to use  our skills, emotions and thoughts we don’t necessarily use on a daily basis, especially if we don’t practice something creative in our daily lives. I’m mostly a right-brained thinker so I automatically have that urge to do something creative every now and then. I either try and make a vision board, make jewelry, design a birthday card or even organize my room. I need creativity in my life and I think that it’s so important that we find time to do creative things.

The other week, I had a talk with a good friend of mine who recently tapped into her creative side again after a couple of years. She let me know that it was fun, environmentally friendly and so easy to make the simple things that we usually purchase at the stores like candles and chapstick.

Here are some reasons why tapping into your creativity is GREAT:

  • It brings out your inner-child. Our inner-child needs to play once in awhile. If we are too serious and stressed all day, it really takes a toll on our bodies. If you like children, this allows you to connect and bond with them.
  • You can create unique things you can’t find anywhere else and it’s your very own mix, no matter if you see something similar to it in stores.
  • It’s better for the environment when you can make things from recyclable materials.
  • It allows you to think outside the box and ignite create thoughts.
  • You can save money by making someone a gift instead of buying them something that isn’t too personalized.

Hope this helps you unleash that creative side we all know that you have inside of you. Good luck and have some fun!

What are some ways you stay creative or use your creativity on a weekly basis?

  1. Kim,
    What a cool flower your cousin designed!!!

    And – such a great reminder – that we can always diverge down that creative path – and some pretty wonderful things can happen!

    Love it!!

    1. Hi Lance,

      Yes it is a pretty creative talent my cousin has! And yes, a creative path is always filled with much fun and good emotions. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

  2. Of course — what else would you do with a blue duct tape flower but put it on a ukelele? Then again I suppose you could put it on a banjo. 🙂 To answer your question about creativity, my creative outlet is writing music, which is becoming more and more of my life.

    1. Hi Chris,

      That’s awesome, I think music is such a creative tool that truly expresses emotions that we forget we have inside of us. Keep up the good job, be sure to share it with us soon.

  3. Every blog I go to mentions something about finding the “gift” the “passion” the “inner child”. I think the universe is trying to send me a message!
    I’ve been working so hard on my blog and making money online, being all serious all the time I forgot to have fun. Thank you for this post!
