“I’m not creative.”
I’ve heard this from many people and all of them – every single one! – turned out to be an exceptionally creative spirit. We limit ourselves by limiting our definitions. Yes, creativity encompasses all the arts from music to poetry to painting. But if you’re only including the fine arts in your definition, you’re doing creativity and yourself a disservice.
Creativity describes how you see the world, or how you solve problems in your work, or how you engage a congregation on Sunday mornings, or how you help students find their way, or how you coax community from a bowl of stone soup.
You are creative. Celebrate your creativity every day.
