|Blade of grass emerging from the snow.|
I sometimes think our creativity is like a blade of grass. When stormy relationships freeze our emotions, our creativity often pokes through as if it wants to announce it's still with us and everything will be all right.
The world steps on us with various pressures causing us to become too busy to tend to our creativity. Yet, lo and behold, it keeps on growing in our sub-conscious. Family duties overwhelm, and still our creativity survives. Just as it flourishes when the world poops on us.
Why is that? What makes our creativity so strong that it survives neglect, criticism, outside pressures and internal doubts? I'm not entirely sure. I like to think it's part of our DNA -- the lovely part, the part that keeps our minds questioning, our souls yearning and our eyes seeing the beauty around us.
As Spring rolls into our lives with all her beauty, grass will once again grow...and grow. Allow your creativity to grow, too. Take time every day to either write several paragraphs, to read a few stanzas of poetry, to put brush to canvas or wonder at the growth of a flower. Our creativities don't require much, just room to spread and display its varied beauty. Showcase your creativity this Spring. Write on!
