Creativity is our very own spice of life. We are all creative and are born with a creative drive. It is our choice whether to explore that creativity and discover where it might lead or to allow it to remain dormant inside our minds. If we chose the first, we find that we can create our own plans and life will in turn respond. Thus, to become involved with life, at its very essence, you soon find that your life becomes the subject matter of the creative process.
In the words of photography master Wynn Bullock, “The urge to create, the urge to photograph, comes in part from a deep desire to live with more integrity, to live in peace with the world and possibly to help others to do the same.” Each one of us has the ability to do particular tasks, usually quite well. We have gifts, talents, and we immerse ourselves in activities we love to do. It is our job, as humankind to recognize these simple hobbies and allow them to grow into something more.
These hobbies transform into passions and allow us the power to create, unite and express the unthinkable. We can create anything, anytime, anywhere, by giving into our creative passions and bringing beauty into existence which was not present to the world before our doing.
When we are not creating, we are not doing. We are not actively participating in life and passion. Creating isn’t about construction of the masterpiece it is the art of the painting and the genuine opportunity to participate in its creation, and take ownership over development. Whether to succeed or fail, ultimately is of little importance than to undertake the never ending journey of the creative process.
