What does Creativity mean to you? Do you imagine being able to draw, or create things, or arts and crafts? What if you are the “arts and crafts” type? Does that mean you don’t have any creativity? Oh, how will you ever get a balance life if you can’t be crafty?!
Fear not! Creativity has nothing to do with being artsy and crafty! Well, it can, if that’s how you express yourself. Creativity is your ability to confidently and effective express yourself in the things that you do. When someone looks at something you’ve done (a project, a meal cooked, a household chore completed) there should be little clues that YOU did it. Sometimes it’s only the people who really know us well that can pick up on them, and other times someone who’s just heard of you could be like, “Oh, right, Kimberley totally did THAT!”
So how do you gauge this section? This is apart of your creativity as well. Think about all the things you do on a daily basis. How much of them have you tweaked or altered to fit your style and your needs? Now think about how you felt when you tweaked them. Did it make you uncomfortable? Empowered? Apathetic? Do you celebrate how you do things differently or do you try to hide it away so you seem more sheeple ish?
There’s one more things I’d like you to consider: how do you express your joy? Creativity can be expressed in all areas of our lives, but I feel it’s most important in expressing our Joy! When you are excited, happy, vibrant, full of life and energy, proud, etc how do you express it? Are you confident in sharing those amazing emotions with others? Do you feel like it makes others feel inferior or do you think it empowers them to express their own joy? Think of that for a while if you feel the need to hide when you’re very excited about something. Why? Are the people you surround yourself with allowing you to express your creativity and encouraging you to live a better and better life? Or do you feel like there’s jealousy, envy, and maybe frustration and anger towards your success?
Creativity is a neat section because once you understand how you can utilize it in your life it starts to feel almost like a game to incorporate it into the things you have to do that may not feel like fun.
