Today is Wednesday, which means it’s time for the Inspirational word of the day.
Although, I only do one word a week, so I guess that really makes this the Inspirational word of the week. Just sayin’…
Creative: (adjective) 1. having the quality or power of creating. 2. resulting from the originality of thought or expression. 3. productive
Although I picked this word because I really enjoy being creative, honestly, I’m stuck trying to find something clever to write about.
I think it’s because being creative is about more than just being clever, or smart.
Creativity happens only after you show up and put in the time. It’s not about being perfect. Or even good.
Being creative is about taking a chance, making an effort, and doing the work, everyday.
Sometimes the ideas flow so fast, it’s hard to keep up with them. (Sharpen your pencil and enjoy those days because sometimes just making dinner can be a challenge.)
Create space within your heart to know that you are enough, you are doing enough and tomorrow brings another chance to try again. (repeat as many times as necessary to clear your head).
By doing something creative every single day, you must give up the idea of being perfect.
I hope you have enjoyed this, my friendly blog reader!
Have a great week and I’ll be back on Monday with the Inspirational song of the week.
