Creativity comes in all shapes and forms. After continuing to search around the blogs for creative themed blogs, I have found a lot of different types. Honestly, the importance of creativity isn’t in what type of things you are creating, but just that you are creating period.
I have found wonderful hope and inspiration in artists that I have found. There are DIY blogs that are extremely detailed and the end results are wonderful creations. I envy those who are able to create things from just a few items and come up with something beautiful and appealing to the masses. I can’t say that I am really a crafty type person, but maybe I just haven’t found the right inspiration.
Art all too often comes from the emotions we are feeling. We do and see things in different ways based on how we ourselves are feeling. Art might be bright, vibrant and beautiful but we are feeling down and depressed so that might not be what we are looking for, but we can look a little further and see the right picture or hear the right song and it just works. Being creative doesn’t mean that we create something that everyone wants, but something that others can relate to and find meaning in.
I write poems and fiction because that is the ability that I have been given. I do try my hand at photography and drawing from time to time as well, but from what I have seen there are so many others who do that so much better than I. I think it’s always encouraging to see how talented others are around you. Don’t let the talent of another hinder or stop you, use that to inspire you.
Look at art in ways that allow you to see what can I take from it and use it to create something original or your own. Life is more exciting and tolerable, to be honest, if you live your life inspired. We all live our daily lives, grinding at way at the things that we have to do, but if we stopped for a moment to express ourselves we never know what we could create. We could be the next big thing as an artist, painter, writer, musician, or whatever, just take what you see and share your expression with the world.
