Creativity is the spice of life to me. Creativity wakes me up in the mornings when my mind is whirling with new ideas. Creativity keeps me up at night when I have to jot down a new idea or run to the computer to try it out. Creativity makes life fun!

I agree Bruce! Reminds me of last week when you said you couldn’t sleep because you had too many ideas. I love how creativity bubbles over into different areas and makes everything that much better. Cheers for that!! Positively,

Thanks for including me in this post, Peggy! This is something that should really be talked about more — it is what sets businesses apart and is the precursor to innovation. People like to talk tech, but tools and the like are a lot less important than what is done with them.

Interesting – we do talk about the tools and tech (you know I do) but how you use them is the important aspect. Creativity and individuality are what make the end process of using the tools different for each person. Even something as cut & dry as a spreadsheet can have a creative spin with color coordination and use of formulas. Thanks for your thoughts here and with the post!Peggy

Being creative also means being different, and being different isn’t always popular. Being truly creative is showing the world just how creative you are, even when you know the world may not appreciate your type of creativity. Creativity comes with it’s highs and lows. Sometimes being creative makes you the one everyone wants to be friends with, and tell others they know you. Other times being creative makes you the one left alone and stared at because of being so different. Creative means being called brilliant, weird, cool, unique, attention seeking, crazy, fantastic, strange, wonderful, unbelievable, one of a kind, exciting and popular, and I’ve been called all of them. I think it’s interesting that when creativity is misunderstood, such as the girl in high school that had a mowhawk… it can be a lonely place. But been your creativity makes others more popular because they know you… You suddenly become widely accepted. I’ve been fortunate to write, play guitar and sing, so mostly, I’ve seen the positives of being creative. But there are still always those people who don’t like what you create, and you just have to accept that. Then there are those that hate you simply because you are creative and they are not… I don’t have the time or energy to worry about those people. So to me… being creative also means being daring, courageous, determined, strong, and confident. In summation… “Don’t ever allow someone tell you that you can’t do something”, “Keep On Keep’n On”, “Dare to be Different”, “Don’t be Afraid to be Yourself”, and “Be an Individual”.

Love your thoughts Dave – especially this: “Creative means being called brilliant, weird, cool, unique, attention seeking, crazy, fantastic, strange, wonderful, unbelievable, one of a kind, exciting and popular, and I’ve been called all of them.” Why does society find the need to label people? Thanks for sharing! Peggy

Peg, I think everyone has his/her own creative nature. Creativity is an expression of thought or emotion. Whether tangible or intangible one’s creativity is limited only by the limits of one’s imagination. Having the ability to visually or audibly express one’s thoughts and emotions is a talent; an art (something I have little of).
Being creative can be as simple as finding a new shortcut to work or discovering how to fold a fitted sheet. Or, it can be complex like building a new space shuttle.

Nice Marc – you are right, I am sure that everyone has creative aspects to them. That is why I felt it was an interesting question to ask because I wondered what others felt about it and how they expressed it. Thanks! Peggy

For me, creativity is freedom. Creativity helps me achieve whatever I want to. In fact, creativity also helps me decide what awesome things it is I want to achieve in the first place. Creative thinking is realising that anything and everything is possible, then acting on that belief.

Right on Ryan! I love that your creativity helps you decide your awesomeness – love your fabulous attitude! This is beautiful “Creative thinking is realising that anything and everything is possible, then acting on that belief.” Cheers!Peggy
