Creativity is a birthright. Since the day you were born you have been creating and you might not even know it.
1 If you cook or make meals you are creating. You know those weird food combos you like to eat? That’s being creative too. Oh yeah!
2 When you get dressed in the morning, that’s you creating. You are creating yourself by style and color choices you make. That’s a tick in the creative column.
3 That email you just send to your bestie, you had to create that. You wrote the words to say the nice things you said to them. That’s another check for being creative.
4 Have you ever taken a photo and posted it to Instagram? Boom, you’re creating. You saw something you liked and you set up the shot with your own eyes and made that photo. Check, check you are creative.
5 Do you doodle on your notes while you are listening to someone talk? +1 for creativity.
6 When your favorite song shows up on your playlist do you start dancing? Those moves you got there, that’s you creating.
7 Have you ever visualized an idea and then made it happen? Like maybe you thought, “this pizza is good but it would be so much better with BBQ sauce on top.” Oh my gosh, look at you being all creative and stuff! +5
8 Do you have a hobby? Perhaps you knit, sew, write notes to the elderly, keep a journal, play sports, travel, bake cakes for friends, etc. Yup, you guessed it, you are creating.
9 So remember that time you ran out of that thing you needed? You found something else to use and it worked! Woohoo, that was creative.
10 Have you ever had an idea to improve something? Maybe it was a system at work or a way to organize your messy garage, yup, you are creative.
If you said yes to even one of these you are most definitely creative. So now what?
