Creativity is...

I believe creativity...

is life
is the essence of the Universe
is sacred
is everyone's right
is as essential as breathing
is fun
is easy when you feel safe
is joyful and inspiring
is something to be shared
is a valuable way to spend your time
is in everything you do
is a key ingredient in anything
is important to and for me personally
is worth dedicated your life to
is a part of the answer to the world's problems
is a way of expressing yourself
is a way of discovering your self

What is creativity to you?

creativity is exactly as you so wonderfully described, and I adore this thought: 'is easy when you feel safe...'

Jamie, I'm going to be sitting with that one today because I believe it's a new think for me. I suppose I know the truth of it but had never put it into words.

Lovely...

Gorgeous poem, Jamie! Creativity is playing with All That Is and giving some shape and form to our inspirations.

Beautifully written Jamie. :)

Creativity to me is anything that gives me that bliss filled feeling.

Creativity is being open to what the universe has to share with you and letting it flow through your true self...

So beautifully said Jamie, I love the photo as well, how precious!

Creativity is how we taste the magic of life itself. What a thrill! What an animal response! We are all created creative.

What a perfect word. I have this wishing stone game I do in the mornings that give me a word or words for the day and yesterday one of the words it gave me was Create. I totally agree with your view on creativity. Thank you for posting it!

Awesome poem! I believe creativity is the ability to express myself, whatever the medium may be, to encourage and help nurture the creativity in others, whether through words, deeds, actions, every one little thing matters. Creativity is to be free and allow your soul to soar.

Incredible poem-but I really don't have much more to add--
creativity is being able to express the thing that is me-in whatever medium is at hand and that feels right-
it is joy and love and bliss and love and so much more...
Thank you! :-)

oh jamie, this is so well timed because i just got "12 secrest of highly creative women" back from the library so that i can finish reading the last 3 chapters AND am beginning to put together that creative nook in my new home that i spoke about on the celebration call.

so, with that in mind...creativity; for me over the next little while, is aligning all that i need to be free and open to the magic of it's transformation.

peace,
lil

I think you covered it perfectly, Jamie! I believe creativity is in everything we do and in everything around us.

Brandi said...

is life....

that first line sums it up for me.

Creativity is a spark between your heart and your brain. What you do with this fire becomes its reality. Snuff or Stoke.

yum, yum, yummy! I agree with all your sentiments here. For me creativity is expression, it's life, it's energy, it's movement, it's play, it's openness, it's real, it's juicy, it's fun, it's available for everyone.

Hi Jamie, I don't think I could express it any better than you have. Wonderful and I wholeheartedly agree with what you have posted here.
