Creativity. Where do you find it? A girlfriend of mine recently joined Pinterest. She said she was “searching for some creativity, because” she was “lacking the gene.” It got me thinking, where do you find creativity? Are you born with it? Can you cultivate it? I believe you can be inspired by the world around you, and this inspiration spurns creativity.

For me, I find it everywhere. You will frequently find me taking pictures of my ‘inspiration.’ From the beach to the sky to shops and museums. I love the ideas people come up with. I want to be that creative.

Some ideas I can execute, nearly flawlessly. Others, I start and take a step back and think, “How in the world did they do that?” Some creations I am afraid to attempt. There’s just no way I have that much creativity in me.

But, always I am inspired. This world is a beautiful place because of the creativity of people. We all have it within us, it’s just a matter of finding that one thing you do well. Tap into it. Work with it. And share it with the world. Make it a more beautiful place to be.

So, get your Pinterest on! Thanks for reading…Amy
