There’s one thing that I’ve learned about myself over the years. Whats that? That if I don’t allow myself to let creativity flow then I get very grumpy. I won’t say depressed, but I do notice a change in myself. For me, I have many outlets for my creative juices.
Here are a few ways I express my creativity:
- Photography – This always make the list. There are so many ways to be creative with photography. It’s fun to learn new techniques and work with different people. Being an introvert it helps me to connect with people when I take their photos. (Now who’s ready for a photo shoot? Let’s be creative!)
- Writing – I’ve been writing since 1996. My writing partner/husband got me started with poetry. Now I do poetry, very short stories (much to the dismay of my book club!), and blogs (such as this one). All of these allow me to say the things I may not always say in person. It also allows me to have fun while being very creative.
- Crafts – This is very broad, as this list by it self can get really long!!! I love many forms of crafting. I’ve tried some that I absolutely love. Others, not so much, but would try it again. Then there are others I won’t ever do again!
- Baking – It’s been a while, but I do enjoy baking a sweet dish. 90% of the time I try to make them from scratch.
