Learning to Accept and Express Creativity

The creative energy of the universe is available to everyone. All we have to do is be open to it. These are a few suggestions for simple ways to accept and express creativity.

1. Be open to life and love.  Creativity has a hard time squeezing into closed minds and hearts.

2. Learn to recognize new ways of doing things.  The way we’ve “always done that” doesn’t always work.  Be open to new possibilities.

3. Remember inspiration can come from the most unlikely places.

4. Listen to inner guidance.  Answers may be within you if you just listen.

Everyone is creative, so just forget the old “I can’t draw” excuse and allow your creative potential to express itself in whatever way it sees fit. Remember it’s creativity that makes life fun. So go out there and create!

“Creativity is a great motivator because it makes people interested in what they are doing.  Creativity gives hope that there can be a worthwhile idea.  Creativity gives the possibility of some sore of achievement to everyone.  Creativity makes life more fun and more interesting.”  — Edward de Bono
