A Lesson on Creativity from My Daughter Grace
Erik Wahl, the latest guest on my Live Inspired Podcast, wrote that many of us believe creative genius is reserved for the chosen few. But don’t be fooled, he says. Creative genius actually resides within each one of us. We just must be brave enough and bold enough to reveal it.
I was reminded of this quote earlier this morning as I made breakfast with my daughter Grace. When I ran into an ingredient issue and wanted to throw in the towel, she reminded me that with a little “outside the box” thinking, we could still find a way to make a great breakfast. And so we did!
Too frequently in life, we see the directions in front of us and we give into our fear of going against the grain or trying something that’s never been done before.
My reminder to you today is that there is creative genius within each and every one of us. So let’s be bold enough and creative enough to reveal him or her…even if it means we may make a mess.
Today is your day. Live Inspired.
When is the last time you took some liberty and allowed your creative genius to shine through- whether in a recipe, at work, or in life? Share in the comments below! I can’t wait to read how you’ve been bold!
