How to be More Creative…


see what you see

Sometimes I catch myself trying to be too perfect. And it takes the fun out of life. I think I’m creative, but even the process of creating becomes a serious challenge if I’m trying to get something just right. I’ve been trying to focus more on accepting my ideas (good and bad) and realizing that even the bad ones are part of the creative process. But creativity isn’t perfect, it’s freedom. Freedom to share the view from where YOU stand, because no one else on earth can stand in your shoes and see with your eyes. Thinking about it from this perspective excites me, encourages me and makes me feel limitless. Like it’s okay to be different. Take a deep breath… this is self acceptance.

What do you think about creativity and perfection? Do they help or hurt each other?

Here’s a bonus article I liked about how to be more creative.

    What a great post! I’m definitely a creative but I’m also a life-long perfectionist. I think the two go hand-in-hand. Sometimes I think perfectionism is a curse but if I weren’t that way, I wouldn’t push myself to take things to the next level (which requires using creativity). So if I weren’t a perfectionist, would I still be creative? I’m not sure. I guess it’s like what came first-the chicken or the egg.
