My theme for the Blogging from A to Z challenge is Creativity. Today’s topic is Growth.
When you create something, you’ll grow emotionally and intellectually from the experience. Try something new, out of your comfort zone, and your growth will be even greater.
Creativity will stimulate your mind and help you become a better learner.
Working on a creative project can raise you out of a sad or depressed mood. The process of creating, and then seeing the result, will give you a sense of accomplishment and raise your spirits.
Don’t even think about failing. There is no “failure” when you unleash your creativity. If something doesn’t quite turn out the way you planned, still you’ve learned something new. You challenged yourself and created something unique. That is succeeding, not failing.
One creation is never the final word. Whatever you create is a stepping stone to more knowledge and more creations, to more personal fulfillment and gratification—and happiness.
How do you think creativity enhances personal growth?
Personal growth without creativity is only an insipid amassing of knowledge and memories, which, IMO, are worth about as much as one of Google’s databases without the end user. 😉
Very well put, Veronica. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
So true. I’ve been cartooning lately. It relaxes me and renews my energy for the other things I have to do.
J.L., I visited your site and saw your Gullible Gina cartoon. I like your style, and cartooning does look like a fun way to unleash your creativity! Thanks for stopping by!
I’m glad I hopped over to your blog. I am now a follower. I agree, getting involved in something creative can lead a person into a better mood. Maybe that’s why I love exercising my creative side.
Debi, I enjoyed your creative blog for “G.” Thanks for stopping by and following my blog!
I have to echo Veronica’s words above. Creativity is the force behind personal growth. Without it there’s a huge amount of emptiness.
Silvia, so true. Thanks for your comment!
I will let you know how creativity enhances personal growth, after I attend my long overdue first mosaic class next week…
Because all forms of creativity are intertwined, I’m certain this project will be stimulating and give rise to new writing ideas…
Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.
Nice to meet you and a new follower via the A to Z challenge.
