I’m in a creative draught right now. There was a point in my life when I would write poetry while sitting in class, at my desk at work, during church, at Starbucks, anywhere I was sitting still. But now…I can barely string together a few words to eek out a blog.
It has been so frustrating. I am a creative person. But–I think that for someone to be creative, they have to be in a creative environment. Which I am not. I miss reading the classics. I miss being challenged by some of the greatest minds in the world. I miss being intellectually challenged. I miss being creatively challenged.
This week I had a co-worker tell me that she feels alive when she is in the office. She is enjoying learning all of the new information about her new job. I want to feel that way. I just don’t know if medical devices do that for me…or ever will. I’m trying to do the best job that I can, with the most integrity and the standard of excellence that I know is required. Feeling as if I am stagnating is making that increasingly difficult.
I want to be creative again. I have to purpose to rediscover my creativity. So, that is my goal. To set aside time for creativity…
One thought on “Creativity, where art thou?”
I always think of creativity as a rhythm that we have to stay in. It is finding things in your everyday job or even blogging that fuels that creativity. You also hit it on the head when you said having others around that challenge that creativity. Just do it.
