The year of On the Seventh Day I Grouted was my most creative year. Besides making a mosaic every day I did many other projects as well. I know that it was because I was so committed to doing something creative every day that I was able to be more creative in general. I want to get that feeling back again and I want to recognize that creativity is a part of my entire life instead of considering that only doing art work is creative. So here’s what I’m going to do – every evening I’m going to take a few minutes and write about what I did that day that was creative. It may be something like solving a work problem by thinking outside the box or making something different for dinner or, of course, working on a mosaic (my favorite thing to do). I think that we all do more things in our daily lives that are creative and we don’t even realize it. I’m hoping that by thinking about it and sharing it I will see how creative I am all the time and therefore expand my creativity. I also hope it will help you to think about all the creative things you do during the day and therefore expand your creativity. Please enter a comment with the creative things you do each day so we can all encourage each other.
So, that’s my plan. I’m a little nervous about making a commitment to write every evening but I’m going to make the commitment anyway. I’m also going to make a commitment to myself not to feel guilty if I miss some days. I’m just going to do my best and we’ll see how it works out.
