I Am Creative

I always misheard and misspoke so many things in my life growing up. Whether it was a song lyric or what someone said or a line from movie, my brain mashed it up into something similar and alien, weird and cool. For a long time, I took this as a curse. ‘Why didn’t I get it right?’ I would chastise myself. ‘What is wrong with me?’

Now I’ve realized that it wasn’t a mistake that I made but an unconscious choice to be creative. My mind twisted into something new and beautiful. Creativity is a way of life for me. I’m an artist, after all. A poet, a writer. So now I’ve embraced my ‘mistakes’ and I love them. They are a part of me.

Being creative also means working on stopping my ego black-and-white thinking and realizing that there are so many answers, so many solutions, so many people and so many things to be. Creativity is a a playfulness of mind and spirit. ‘Snowflakes are the ultimate exercise in sheer creative glee,’ Julia Cameron once wrote in “The Artist’s Way”.

So be creative! Take on a totally different view on life, if only for a moment. Wear someone else’s shoes, literally. Make Halloween dress-up a mindset instead of a holiday.
