I just love when I come across something that helps me grow and really think. Well recently someone I follow on Facebook shared a link to the article below. I encourage you to read the full article, if you love a highly creative person or think you may be one. This really clicked for me.
I knew I was creative but had never heard it put this way. It was like he was listing everything about me.
#1. Their minds don’t slow down: holly smokes, that is me. My mind is always going, I can’t stop it, even at bedtime I am thinking of so many different things. I have more ideas of things to do and write about than any human being should. Reading this in some way helped remind me that I am highly creative, not just crazy!
#3. They need alone time: I have tried to explain this to my family but often they think I just don’t want to be around them, part of that is true but really, I just need time alone to replenish my soul to be a better person for them. I think this goes for most people, not just highly creative ones. Over the years this is something I have accepted and just take the time I need, most of the time without feeling guilty. My family knows to let me wake up slowly as that is my favorite time alone, it helps me to clear my busy, creative mind for the day.
#6. They speak in stories: wow: as a writer how true is this. I can’t seem to just have thoughts about something, I have this compelling desire to share that wisdom or situation with you in hopes of helping you in some small way. Sometimes I wish I could shut that off but, can’t find that button yet.
There were 10 things listed in the original article and they all really applied to me, but I just wanted to share a few keys ones here. If you are a highly creative person, please share which one of these jumped out to you the most.
I love when I come across something that really sparks me to think so thank you Angela, while you may never read this, you helped others find this amazing information.
Love & Peace,
