I love to be creative. I find joy in being creative.
I have always been an "idea" person. Ideas are always flying around in my mind. There is always a solution.
The biggest eye opening aha for me in this chapter was expanding my idea of what creative is. I tend to live in a box. I have rigid definitions of things. I use to think that being creative only had to do with art or music. I loved being shown how to expand and to look at even the things I do daily as being creative.
An example is cooking. I love to cook. I read cookbooks in bed. I have food blogs I read daily. But I never considered this as being creative. I don't know why. I now see the creative in this activity I just do out of love and adventure. What joy.
Now, the problem I have with being creative is follow through. I am a great "starter" and a not-so-great "finisher." I know this about myself.
I tend to let my feelings of fear and not being good enough stop me from moving to that next step of creativity, following the dream.
I guess that is where our next chapter falls into place. Risk.
I can hardly wait.
