Do you remember the time you tried? I mean really tried to do something, anything? It wasn’t a matter of will. You didn’t lack the desire. You simply wanted to try.
You wanted to do something. Like the time you ran a mile. You tried, you really hard. Couldn’t breathe. Legs cramped up. But you did it. You didn’t stop. You kept going and you ran…a mile.
Do you remember the time you tried drawing? You thought there was no way I can do this. No possibly way I can create something on a piece of paper that looks like anything. But you tried. You did it. No one cares what it looks like or doesn’t look like.
You made it. You tried. These are moments remembered. Because you tried. Creativity is about trying. It’s about remembering moments from your past and doing. Now. A moment remembered is a moment of inspiration. Use those memories and experiences to spur your creativity now.
Creativity isn’t about what you think you can do. It’s about doing. There is a creative in each of us. You remember the moments that inspired you because they mean something to you.
Each moment of creativity is a moment of clarity even if you don’t see the end result. It’s fine. Keep going. Creativity is infinite. You’re full of it. Keep going.
Moments of inspiration, of ideas, are what makes us different than every living thing on the planet. Creative moments separate us. Creativity is what makes us human. The more you practice your craft, the more you experience your humanity.
They are moments of importance. They are moments of creativity. Don’t forget them. Go for it. Do it. Create.
