Creative has always been the last word I would use to describe myself.
I’ve never been much of an artist, I don’t write short stories, decorating gives me anxiety, I’d rather buy anything than DIY it. However lately I find myself craving some sort of creative outlet for myself.
When I started this blog, I didn’t really have a purpose for it. It was just something I wanted to do. You could consider it a creative outlet, I guess. My sister once clarified to me that putting outfits together was a form of creativity, but I never saw it that way. Everyone puts outfits together…every single day.
I’ve always loved writing, but it’s always been journal writing. More of an outlet for my emotions rather than anything creative. That is the closet thing I’ve ever felt erred on the side of creativity.
These days though, creativity is all I think about. I want to create something..anything, that will give me the sense of purpose I am looking for here.
The problem I’m having is that I feel like you can’t go looking for creativity. It’s something that will just come to you when it’s ready.
How do you find that creative spark? I would love your input and to know your thoughts on being inspired to create something.
