Many of us spend our lives in the same job doing the same things. Everyday we get up, we go to work, we tend to our children, we do our housework, we cook, we garden the list is endless. Yet how many of us see creativity in what we do? How many of us see creativity in our relationships? Some of you might be saying to yourself, "me creative, you have got to be kidding!"
I came across a utube video of Dewitt Jones. Dewitt worked as a National Geographic photographer for 20 years. He is a brilliant photographer and an inspirational speaker. If I had to choose one quote of his it would be... "look at the ordinary and see the extraordinary"!
Everyone one of us have had moments in our relationships where they have been extraordinary. Take a look back to these times. If you look closely what was present for you? I bet you that there was passion, there was being in the moment and there was love. What if every day you could tap into those moments, could feel the feeling of being in an extraordinary experience and relationship? And what would be possible for mankind and the world if everyone chose to live a creative and passionate life.
Here is the key...you get to CHOOSE. You get to choose how you see YOUR world. Your perspective creates how you experience the world. Dewitt puts it beautifully, he says we are looking through these lenses, and that we all have the potential to have a creative life. And I would like to add... to have creative relationships. So everyday ask yourself these questions:
How can I use my creativity in my relationships today?
Which lens am I choosing to look out from today?
What actions will I take today that will take the ordinary and turn it into an extraordinary day?
What do you see in Dewitt's story for yourself?
