Called to Be Creative
“I don’t have a creative bone in my body”: this is often the first thing that people say when they are unexpectedly asked to tap into their creativity. Yet, scientists now agree that creativity is a basic element of the human brain, and that we are all creative. This denial of our creative abilities almost always goes hand in hand with a lack of awareness of the fact that expressing creativity is good for us; it gives our life purpose, it reduces stress and everyday anxieties, and it helps us overcome even the most difficult challenges. It is never too late to reignite our spark of creativity, because we can all pick up a pen, paintbrush, or any other creative tool, regardless of how old we are. It is important to bear in mind, however, that there is no need to become the next Nobel Prize winner or world-famous artist, because all we need to do is simply focus on enjoying our journey of creativity.
