The Power of Learning

Brightness of a Smile

The wonderful thing about creativity is I am always learning. Learning something new is insightful, but it’s also motivational to move forward and follow my dreams. New knowledge can create a different perceptive on problem solving. Then I feel better about myself, smile more, and seem to enjoy others around me.

Cycles of situations, the trails of influence, the cause and effect moments; I can choose to dwell on the emptiness of what I don’t have or the fullness of what I can use as resources. It is a marvelous thing when you think about it, choice, but it can be hard to obtain at times. Sometimes, allowing the influences of others can sneak up on you. Before you know it, you identify with their misery that they are comfortable with sharing, voicing, and pointing out the negative, the emptiness of their lives, the lack of desire, and unwillingness to care. I have been told to walk away, but what if it’s family, close friends, or your children?

I don’t have the answers, but what works with me, holding onto what’s true in my heart, my desires, and my dreams. Taking the time to see a young child smile, listen to their giggles, and share in their world of laughter. Walks to breathe in the fresh air, take in my surroundings, and collect my thoughts. A book that allows me to relax, take an adventure, or an uplifting article to read. Carrying my camera as I walk, run errands, to photograph something that’s an eye-catching scene or moment. But most of all, one thing that can be inspiring and help me keep a positive attitude; learning something new.

I appreciate and enjoy the opportunity to sign up for some free classes offered at my local community college, and when I leave, I feel inspired to share what I have learned, use what I have learned, and I discover that new ideas are creating in my thoughts. I am uplifted by the inspiration and the imagination.

In my opinion, welcoming something new, change, or a challenge it feeds into that cycle of situations, trails of influence, and the cause and effect moments; so, I can make better choices, which allow me, to concentrate on the fullness of what’s available, and use what’s around as resources to living abundantly on my journey.

From the Heart

I was asked the other day, “Why Creativity?”
Well, let’s define creativity first. It is the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create significant and meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, progressiveness, or imagination; according to the dictionary.
It’s an everyday quality that I truly believe everyone has and processes to make life more meaningful. I appreciate the state of being creative with photography and writing, but I also use that skill in problem solving daily issues.

The Heart of Creativity


Concepts to hold,
Stories to be told,
Originality of thought,
Expression caught,
Illustrations to share,
Ideas to bare,
Discovery will peak,
Something to be unique!

Creativity Opens Doors

To Climb or Go Around?

Today has been hot outside with temperatures in the upper 90’s.  I think this afternoon as I looked at the temperature, it read 99 degrees.  I am not one to be outside in this heat, so I decided to stay in with the kids.  That’s the time I have to think, of creative things to do indoors.

Creativity, as I’ve been told, is to have that ability or skill to create, the use of my imagination to be productive.  Well, it could be with games, stories, cooking or even reinventing the use of toys.  Creating can help with problem-solving and fixing.  Being creative can be so much fun.  I truly believe everyone possess the gift; that a person’s thoughts and expression of desires and dreams, is developed from being creative.

As I work towards writing, I get many ideas from watching my children and grandchildren while they play, and the suggestion they may make about an item I’m getting ready to put into the trash.  A shoe box can become the hide-a-way for Spiderman, my broken laundry basket aids to a new style of basketball, or an Easter egg with a rock becomes the new rattle for the baby.  The list is undefined and keeps going on and on.

I guess, in my opinion, it could be said that Creativity equals infinite possibilities.  Creativity equals unlimited ideas, indefinite suggestions, boundless experiences that can open several doors in our lifetime.   Doors that are actually NOT shut to our dreams; they just need that creative, magical works of reconstruction, design, and means to reveal the opening.
