As adults, we can get boxed in pretty easily. We lose spontaneity. We're always on a schedule, filling our free time with errands, and we forget to play. When was the last time you pulled out a box of crayons? You don't have to be Picasso to create your own masterpiece! You're already capable of being creative! You've just convinced yourself that creativity is something that other people have. Not true! Stop these imaginary mental images, and change your perspective. We are all inspired by something! Focus on what it is that inspires YOU, and simply allow your imagination to go where it wants. Allowing your mind to be at play is perhaps the most effective way to stimulate creative thinking. Give yourself permission to break the rules and realize that there isn't a "right" way when it comes to creativity. You might be surprised what comes to you.....a thought, an image, a word or color that will inspire your next move to a great idea, and recognize your ideas as worthy thoughts! Creativity adds excitement to our lives....a richness that is very fulfilling. Allow it into your life!
"Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way."
-Edward de Bono
