When you imagine a creative person, what comes to mind? Do you picture a painter, a photographer or a fashion designer? Maybe you picture someone who makes their own furniture or writes music. All of those people are creative, but creativity is so much more than making or doing something artistic.
At Labels of Freedom, we believe in so many things. We believe in inspiring women to break free from negative labels, and we believe in empowering women to live life freely. We also believe that every single person can be creative. Why? Because we are made in the image of a creative God who made all different kinds of plants and animals and all different types of people. We have the love and spirit of our God within us, and that means we can be creative too!
Creativity can appear in any area of life, no matter your occupation or status. If you are a nurse, you use creativity when you create a safe and nurturing environment for your patients. If you are a teacher, you are creative when you think of new ways to explain lessons to your students. As a mother, you are creative in so many ways: creating rules and setting boundaries for your children, preparing meals for your family, coming up with ways to support your children’s passions and talents, and so much more. Clearly, creativity is not just for artists!
If you’re still not convinced that you can be creative, think about this:
Each and everyone of us has an imagination. Often, our imagination is much stronger during our childhood, however our imagination never goes away. We have the ability to imagine places, ideas and concepts. The more we tap into our imagination, the more we tap into our ability to create.
Each and every one of us is creative at heart. Believe in yourself and believe in your ability to imagine and create.
