The Daily 300
Thinking creatively to some women comes easily. They don’t fight it; they don’t deny those quirky thoughts a place in their world one iota. However, for others it’s a process that compares to having the plague. Why do you suppose such a wonderful self-fulfilling part of life is avoided?
Well, truthfully the essence of creativity is scary to some because it’s dealing with something that they haven’t experienced. It’s new. It’s uncharted. It’s not about what they have already figured out.
The Risky Business of Creativity
First of all, when you create, you take a chance that other people won’t like your creation. You might get ridiculed for it, or even be hated. They might never speak to you again…or visit your blog. Wow, that’s scary. The road that you take when you think creatively is rocky and without much light. On top of that, you are bare footed. There is no protection from the exposure when you reveal your creative self.
Is It Worth the Risk?
You better believe it is.
I personally know that denying creativity is a slow way to kill a part of yourself. Regardless of the possible negative consequences, there is a whole lot of positive that comes from true, unhindered creative thinking. This is the place where inventions are discovered, brilliant art is formed, classic literature is mastered. And though not everyone will attain that level of fame from their creations, they will make some type of mark on the world if they share their work. So, I guess I’m just saying, don’t hide your creativity. Let it shine! Be who you are…no matter what. You creative people out there, please share you ideas about this topic. Be well-be beautiful.

I’m not creative when it comes to thinking any more, it’s like all my brain cells revolted against me and jumped ship. I ‘m working on a few ideas though.
There is a book called The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron that is wonderful for working on bringing more creativity to your life. I did a post on it; here’s the link. http://www.womenslifelink.com/discovering-your-creative-self/
You are so right Kellie, about all of it.
I love to have found a place I can genuinely relate to.
We (women) are such emotional creatures and without the right guidance and direction, we end up thinking we’re crazy. Without other women to say, “Yeah, me too”, we would all be certified, card carrying members of the same institution.
Without validation from other women, we are left to think too much and I know my head isn’t a very good neighborhood to be going into alone. Thanks for the company. 😉
Gina, I love relating, too! It’s what makes this experience fulfilling and positive. I forgot to tell you thanks for putting my link on your site. So, thanks!
