Creativity is…

Thx to @SteveAlvest for the prompt!

Creativity is…

    1. …Seeing in new ways

    Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way. - Edward De Bono

    2. …playfulness.

    Mr. Rogers: Play is the real work of childhood. (Do we Ever REALLY Grow up?)

    3. …Mixing and matching previous ideas

    4. ...Listening more than speaking

    Author Julia Cameron says her books consist of "Getting it down" instead of "Thinking something up". Listening is her key.

    5. ...A lifestyle not a “thing”

    John Cleese said it like this: "Creativity is not a talent, it's a way of operating"

    6. …Abundant

    Maya Angelou said "You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have."

    7. …Rearranging

    Another Mr. Rogers gem: "The Urge to take what is known and rearrange it in new combinations"

    8. …Serving others

    How about Mark Twain on this one: The Best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up."

    9. …Being truly you

    My Friend David Hooper says 'You gotta let your freak flag fly'. You are no one else, so living fully YOU is creativity.

    10. …Knowing you were created to be creative

    Danny Gregory said it like this: "We all contain the divine, all are connected to the infinite source of creative energy. But unlike the rest of creation, we work awfully hard to suppress it. Birds sing, wolves howl, crickets chirp. But why? Money? Fame? Record contracts? Endorsements? What's it all for? They do it because they are alive. They do it because life is about making things. Making babies, nests, new cells, dinner, dandruff, excrement... Our bodies are always turning one thing into another.
