This blog post was inspired by one of my blog readers. Her name is Mildred. She got in touch with me, and shared a part of her story with me:
“It’s my last year in high school and at times it’s difficult to find time to be creative. When that happens I usually go to your blog and read your posts. Instead of separating my schoolwork and photography / anything creative, I’ve been trying to be creative in my schoolwork.”
This was such an inspiring thing to read, mainly because she had so perfectly described something that I had been wanting to describe for so long. Instead of separating your schoolwork from your photography, why don’t you try to bring that creativity into your schoolwork? Substitute “schoolwork” for whatever it is in your life that you are doing, and there you have it. It’s a beautiful approach to life, and I have to thank Mildred so much for describing it to me.
Approach every situation creatively. Problem solve creatively. Plan for the future creatively. Do things with your friends creatively. Cook creatively. Or as creatively as possible. I’m not saying it’s possible to ooze creativity 24/7, but at least try to apply it to every aspect of your life as often as possible so that you can live a life full of excitement, interest, change, love, art.
I do it so that I can live as inspired as possible, and the only way to do that is to see everything as an art, to see everything in a beautiful light and to do everything creatively. You can chose to do the things in your life creatively, or you can chose to look at them and say that it’s “impossible” to do them creatively.
So, give it a try! I dare you to do everything as creatively as possible today. Let me know how it goes!
