Getting It Inside Out

We want more energy in our lives.  More joy.  More peace.  More of (fill in your blank).  Every man, woman, boy, and girl has creative genious.  It just comes with the package.  Mankind was created in the image of God.  God is a creator.  So, we have it in our "genes."  It will display itself differently with each individual.  It all depends upon your gifts, talents, and desires.  Some will display thier creativity through the Arts.  Others through forms of business prowess.  Still others in construction, or mechanics.  It depends upon who you are.  

Creativity will improve our parenting, our husband or wife skills, or relationships in general.  There is a "sleeping giant" in many of us.  His/her name is Creator.  (Small "c").  When I say that I don't mean we each have our own creative genius apart from the Big "C"...God.

Creativity is often the solution "hidden in plain sight" to living the rat race same-o same-o rut of a mediocre existence. But, this is a new day for you.  And, you don't have to travel over here or over there to get it.  And, you don't have to spend your hard earned mu-lah to discover it.  It's resident with you.  All you need to do is acknowledge you want a better experience called, "Life."  Then discover the "getting it inside out."

Let me sum it up today in this simple thought.  The magic master key is found in beginning to write (or type on your computer).  WAIT!  No Worries, Mate!  You don't have to be an accomplished writer.  You don't have to have good grammar or spelling.  You don't have to get all philosophical and create gems of wisdom.  You just write.  Perhaps start with a sentence (broken and incomplete) a day.
Just write.  Believe it or not...this is the beginning of unearthing your creative genius....for any area of life.  That's why I'm going to spend some time with this specific focus in the days ahead.

Let me give you a simple fun exercise.  It's a game.  It's fun.  And it helps get the ball rolling.  Write as many sentences as you can that say yes without writing the word yes.

1.  Sure enough.  (Now it your turn...long or short)

Later Tater,
