Creativity is sharing your story, but especially listening. I know my own ideas but I don’t yet know those of others. When I listen to those in my inner and outer circles I learn. I learn more when I listen to those who are outside those circles as their experiences are ones I’m not as familiar with. Connecting between others, connecting ideas and actions, potential experiences is being creative.
Yesterday, I was celebrating signing off my taxes (which took me awhile to complete as I’m on a learning curve with them). I was at an Indian restaurant and met a young woman from Ukraine who didn’t speak very many words of English. I was able to share with her my volunteer group which teaches, local and free, English and Citizenship classes to immigrants and their families.
Connecting our lives, ideas, and actions can be powerful and super creative and you never know when or where it could happen.
Best wishes in your creative doings and imaginings! JNC
