What is creativity and how to get creative

creativity

[kree-ey-tiv-i-tee, kree-uh-]
Noun
1. The state or quality of being creative. (Very helpful, right? Eye rolling moment) 
2. The ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns,relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms,methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, progressiveness, or imagination. 
I guess we can work with the definition number two.
In my own words I would just say think different, get out of the box, step out of your comfort zone and look into options.  Being creative applies to our every day life, on how we surf through daily routinary issues, preparing our meals in a new way, or random things like organizing your closet in a more efficient manner to you.
Believe it or not you can be creative with almost everything you do and you will find it so much more interesting, you can give a try at least for 24 hours.

I CONSTANTLY TAKE  A CREATIVITY CHALLENGE  ASKING MYSELF, IS THERE ANOTHER WAY I COULD DO THIS THAT IS MORE EFFICIENT, FASTER OR MAYBE MORE ENJOYABLE?

Definitely one of the reasons why I started this blog was expressing myself through clothing and photography, getting creative on the way I dress, mixing colors or items that are not meant to match or look good together and somehow make them work or repurposing old garments transforming them into something new. Preparing my outfits is a creativity exercise that makes me really happy.

I guess that’s all for now!

I’m preparing a few examples of people that I find very inspiring for their creative ways of doing things, that post is coming soon!
Now as homework… what do you love doing? what makes you happy? Got it? Ok, try to do that “something” in 3 different ways this week. It can be anything… driving, singing, cleaning, playing video games, writing, painting, gardening, talking, etc; anything is valid so GO!!! If you share with me, you will make me even more happy.
