Episode 61: Tips to Boost Your Creativity

I never believed I was a creative person until my husband changed my point of view. Maybe I can’t make music like him or sing like my daughter, but I am creative in other ways. As my husband pointed out, I can whip up a delicious meal from anything I have on hand. If making dinner for four out of a bunch of wilted vegetables, macaroni noodles, and parmesan isn’t creative problem solving, I don’t know what is! 

It turns out that I was thinking about creativity as only making things, which is pretty common. In reality, though, creativity is a lot of things. Your creativity affects how you see the world, how you show up in it, and how you move through life’s obstacles.
