The other day, I was reminded how I had been writing stories ever since I first learned how to write. Since birth, I have been a creative- someone who wields the power to create.
But as I grew older, the voices of the world infiltrated my passion. I had constantly been told that writing is not something that brings in money, and because of this, it should be pushed aside. I silenced my calling and tried pursuing other things. But my passion yelled to me through a megaphone, and I couldn’t ignore the call.
The world told me I couldn’t be an influence through writing, but the creativity resonating in my core told me otherwise.
Creativity can change the world.
But how? Creativity gives us the power to create. It is a mistake to only sanction off creativity to refer to the arts. We can create in any situation. Whether it is forming a relationship with someone you might not normally associate with or producing something of worth after pouring yourself into that project. Creativity abounds in all situations.
The key to creativity is creating where there is no life. This is the thinking outside of the box feature that we normally associate with creativity. Areas with no life produce death, and death longs to suck the substance of the life-giving power creativity possesses.
Death is in money- holding us back from achieving our passion.
Death is in time- constricting us to be limited.
Death is in burnout- suffocating the ability to create.
Creativity is how we combat this deadly foe that is present everywhere.
Don’t allow death to suck your passion dry. Don’t allow money to hold you back from pursuing your dreams. Don’t let people promote death when they tell you that you can’t live up to your potential. Dare to create by expanding the boundaries of creativity and falling into that power present in your very being.
