The Creative Farm Girl Learns a Whole New Kind of Creativity
So I talk a lot about creativity, as in WE ARE ALL BORN WITH IT.
However, all those seeds of creativity will not grow on their own. They need to be nurtured, cared for, and especially, practiced.
Creativity comes in almost as many different ways as there are people. Some of my favorite friends in the business world don’t own a colored marker or pencil in their homes, but their problem-solving skills are outside of any kind of package you’d find in business school.
That’s creativity. It doesn’t fit in a box, including the one where we tend to stick all the musicians, artists, and writers.
I recently reconnected with a friend who embraces yet another unique spin on creativity—relationships. Janny (pronounced Yani) is starting her own business at 50 and is a natural coach. She’s recently been professionally trained and certified to work with those in the ministry, as well as those experiencing transitions of any kind.
As we discussed the idea of creativity in relationships, Janny said that she loves delving into conversation with people and figuring out how best to connect with them. Each relationship is a new opportunity to build and grow deeper as humans, both individually and corporately.
Where does your creativity lie? Could it use a little practicing? Next week I’ll be discussing how you can nurture those little seeds of creativity in a real and intentional way.
Until next time, keep on, dear people.
