Bits of Creativity #1
Might be an abused principle or a Holy Grail, what’s for sure is that creativity it’s something most of us aspire for.
With the risk of sounding super stereotypical, must confess that lately I’m finding myself in kind of a struggle in this direction…which is a fancy way of saying that I’m totally lacking it. And it’s actually funny, because why would anybody create a blog if not because of creative overflow, doh?:)
In any case, as clearly I’m in no position of offering any advice on the matter, I thought that it might be useful to share the simple steps I’m taking in the pursuit of creativity. And, mind you, no guarantee here, I’m only taking the steps now, who knows if it works or not?
Still, if you’d like to read some pro advice, I suggest heading off to Kika’s blog, who is one of my favourite creative persons at the moment. I was actually going to direct you to a specific blog post, but I’m seeing now that she has an entire section on creativity, so do check it out.
Now, for my BIG first advice…. Well, it’s a quite simple one: JUST DO SOMETHING, FOR GOD’S SAKE!
I mean, it’s quite obvious, but if you don’t start somewhere, you’ll never get anything done, so better to try even if you’re not trusting that the result will be the best one.
So what I did to make good on my own advice is experimenting with Instagram (even if I’m not the one taking the photos) and one way of keeping yourself motivated in this respect is by joining challenges.
The photos below have been inspired by the #mycreativemmer_letscelebrate challenge and I must say it was quite fun doing it. I even took one of the photos myself:)
To make it a little more personal, I decided to add a theme to the challenge, so this became #myflowerweek.
