We ALL have creative talent



Too many of us do not recognize our talent and fulfill its promise.

If your heart is heavy for whatever reason, you can make it light by turning to some creative activity that you enjoy. All of us have creative talent. God endowed us at birth. The thing is that too many of us do not recognize our talent and fulfill its promise. Or, we do not recognize the things we do as creative. Anything that you make from a vision in your head, any thing you feel and do differently, or introduce to others is part of this super creative world in which we live. The butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker – ever watched someone who enjoys what he does and knows it is worthwhile and recognizes that he has a 'style' which is peculiarly his own. Priceless- like a certain butcher in a market  I once favored, who could always get an audience as he prepared his cuts of meat.

You don't have to be able to draw, paint, write, sing, play an instrument, invent something, or any of the other activities  most generally  recognized as 'creative' to be creative. 

Do you like pottering in your garden, cooking, sewing, entertaining, taking care of people ? – you can name it – you are creating. It might be something solid or something more ephemeral like just joy in someone's heart. Anything that gives you pleasure to create lifts your spirit.

I enjoyed teaching, but when I was in the classroom I don't know if I consciously regarded what I was doing as 'creative'. Looking back, I know it was.

For me, now, it is writing stories and listening to music and sometimes singing along (especially if I am alone since I can't sing). I can't listen to the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, for one, without feeling uplifted. I create along with the singers. Cooking does it for me too. Sometimes it is just looking into the future and creating visions, like a movie in my head, of what could be.

So if you are feeling down, lift your spirit, lighten your heart. Find your creative space and immerse yourself in it. 

P.S. Prayer can do it too, but some of us think we don’t know how to pray. That's for another blog

I gone to cook.  LOL
