Highly sensitive people are naturally very creative. Why is it that many of us don’t take the time to utilize and enjoy this natural resource?
Perhaps irrational inhibitions stifle our creativity. Maybe we don’t have confidence with our numerous creative attributes. How will you know what you’re capable of unless you try?
Creativity requires patience and a willingness to work for a creative outcome. You can’t wait for inspiration to happen. You have to start writing, painting, or any other creative endeavour that you have. I’m a writer. My real writing comes from my re-writing. I put words to paper and redo some words that I’ve done. Simple isn’t it?
Being afraid of being judged is a major concern for all of us. I understand that I open myself to criticism when I put my writing out there with my books, blog posts, articles, newsletter, and Facebook and Twitter posts. I’ve made peace with myself that I’m not perfect and that everyone isn’t going to love what I write about. I do the best I can and whatever happens, happens.
Distractions and necessities of daily life is a major challenge for most of us. Don’t we find the time to eat and sleep? How about making the time to ignite our creativity? Surely you can the spend time exploring your talents and finding your creative path.
I got this very insightful post on The Highly Sensitive Person Publishing Company Facebook page… “I’ve spent most of my life thinking I was satisfying my creative urges, but finally realized they weren’t mine.” How many of us can relate to this? It’s definitely worth thinking about!
I’m interested in any thoughts or comments that you have.
