Creativity makes us thrive. When was the last time you creatively expressed yourself? What have you done lately that gives the logic and reason part of your brain a rest and allows the creative expression side an opportunity to grow? This is an extremely important aspect of our being. Everyone on earth has unique abilities and talents. When we foster these abilities talents, they grow, and we grow as well.

In order to function in a society, we have to base much of our interaction and output on logic, accuracy, and reason. If every memo you sent out at the office was a creative interpretation of thought, there would undoubtedly be some communication problems. If we get trapped in this world exclusively, however, the talents and abilities that make us individuals begin to disappear. These talents and abilities to produce original, unique thoughts and actions allows for our insightfulness, our vision, and our resourcefulness. If you don’t use it, you lose it! You must keep this part of your being alive and thriving.

Your assignment today is to express yourself in a creative way. Some people write, draw, create poetry, dance, play music and a variety of other activities that utilize our creative thought process. You may chose to write a letter to a loved one. If you do not enjoy “arts” type of activities, you may have a personal brainstorming session, or you can take part in listening to music, observing art, appreciating and acknowledging creativity in it’s many forms.

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.
