Creativity is something it seems we are all born with. It shows itself in intangible (a good joke, scientific theory, music) and tangible (works of art, architecture, mechanics) ways.
I recently read, we are all born highly creative, until we are taught not to be. If you ask a child to sing a song, or put on a show, with no planning or coaching, they will produce a little work of simple art. Give them paper and crayons and watch the creative sparks fly. At some point, many of us seem to loose the simple joy of creating.
Creating something, be it simple or complex is one if the joys of life. Nothing else is as rewarding as taking an idea or concept from inception to finish. I would like to encourage you to find once again the joy if creation... the happiness and peace that can only be found by expressing who you are in a creative way.
