Hi Everyone:

What does the word CREATIVE mean to you?

LOL, when I was younger (now 52) I always linked it with artists, but now realize EVERYONE can be creative in their own "unique" ways.

Now your turn to share smile

I strongly tied creativity to writing and art as a child, but in mid-life I recognize it as the ways I apply myself to live the life I dream.

Have of you ever felt a great deal of resistance within or without to your creativity?

Creativity is very subjective...personally I think that as long as it expresses the artist well, that is a form of creativity.

I love this question and everyone's responses! When I was a kid, I never thought of myself as creative and especially not artistic. I thought creativity was linked to those few who were "naturally gifted." I thought people who painted or could draw well or play an instrument or sing were the true artists of the world, having access to skills that the average joe could never presume to attain. But, like you, Angela, I see it different now. I see that the wonderful thing about creativity is that it can relate to any field or any idea or any artistic medium and everyone is absolutely creative in some way.

Creativity includes being imaginative, inventive, daring to express yourself, daring to expand yourself a little bit more...and then some more; tapping into your own thoughts & ideas; throwing caution to the wind and just having fun with your own designs, art, projects, etc.; seeing life through the eyes of kids; creating work that feels like play; stepping outside the box; being true to yourself and your creative pursuits; opening yourself up to new ideas, mediums, techniques, processes. It's awesome. I'm amazed every day how creative people can be.

I love, especially in the art world, how it is opening up and embracing the many different mediums that others pursue with such passion. Have you ever seen one of those shows where someone takes what seemingly looks like a bunch of junk or odds and ends and then turns it into amazing sculptures? I love seeing that outside-the-box thinking - those limitless boundaries.

Creativity for me is giving yourself permission to soar with your own unique dreams and passions.

I used to linked it with painting and sketches when I was a kid. :) But now, I see how wide does the word covers. In any business it is utterly important when promoting strategies. In scrapbooking and paper crafting it is the top element that makes a produce interesting.

I used to see being creative as meaning you had to be making things. THough that's a large part of it, I also see creativity as a way of seeing the world. When I did my article about divergent personalities, I realized that a person can also creatively see the world and change the way they react to things they experience because of this.
