CREATE YOUR FREEDOM

I was talking to a great human the other day. He’s one of the rare people I could talk about meanings and perspectives, sociology, psychology, etc. He went live on social media to talk about this stuff and in the end, he left an open section for suggestions on what topic would we like to hear about in his next live. 

People were interested mostly in creativity

That is an amazing topic, for sure. But one thing occurred to me then. When someone tells you ‘Be creative’, the first thing that comes to your mind is Art, right? And most people think like that. But what we usually forget is that creativity is all around us. If you want to live authentically you must master your creative zone. Here’s where we can find it in our daily lives;

Thinking, solving problems, relationships, parenting, making money, jobs, hobbies, cooking, making a music playlist, planning a day, planning a trip, changing the space, researching new topics… Everything needs that part of our creativity, except making the bed, brushing our teeth, or eating πŸ™‚ But for everything else that’s happening around us, we need to find a different approach, a different way to do this, a new idea, to expand things, to spice up things, to entertain… everything. Oh, yes, please don’t be creative when you drive! Just follow the rules! πŸ˜€

So, I wonder, what does creativity mean for you?

And the next stop is, how much have we been taught to be creative in life?

I must say my parents had simple rules; You must be educated, you must think with your own head and have good manners, and everything else is up to your freedom. And I thank them for that. It wasn’t easy at first, because you have to stumble and try until you find what lights you up, but I take that as a lesson. It’s all worth it because once you get to the other side and find that dim light, nothing can stop you! If you don’t know what you want yet, at least you know what you don’t want. After years passing by and me trying always new things I realized how much I’ve expanded through all those experiences. Which again, I’m so grateful for!

I’ve always known I’m not that person who will just follow the rules. I’ve always known a 9-5 job is not my thing. I knew that I have to build my own freedom! And without creative thinking, we won’t be able to get there.

Where do you stand on this? I would love to hear your thoughts…

    πŸ’œ I Totally Agree that “Creativity” is NOT!!! The Sole Reserve of Folk that Identify as Creatives such as Sketchers, Designers, Painters, Sculptors, Writers of ALL Hues et al; for example I Had a Mysterious Pelvic Girdle Condition that so Severely Restricted My Mobility that I Was Reduced to Crawling around My Apartment, which, fortunately, is small, for a few weeks…it was an extremely Humbling Experience for which I AM Grateful and Appreciative as I Will NEVER!!! Take Walking for Granted Ever Again; during this Crawl Time I Had to Get “Creative” about How to Live with My Temporary DisAbility and, as I Was UnAble to Stand at The Stove, How to Eat…fortunately, thanks to My Mom and a Brief Flirtation with Being Made HomeLess, I Have a Bunker Mentality when it comes to Stocking Food and Drink; even so, as supplies dwindled, I Got “Creative” with what little food I Had left and then, as quickly as it had Come On, The Pelvic Girdle Pain and Associated DisComfort DisAppeared and I AM As Fit As A Fiddle again in the Total Absence of Medical Intervention

    …πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™…

  3. I did,t like the cumbersome weight of playing by the corporate rules. I never fit into those square boxes and fought it tooth and nail. I am as happy as I can be and hope you are too!
