Creativity is maximized when you're living in the moment.
I can totally relate to this quote... As much as I love to plan and be organized, it just isn't my strongest quality sometimes. Plus, I tend to be way more creative when I get an idea in my head and run with it. I think it can be tough to plan creativity. "I am going to make a beautiful flower arrangement on Saturday!" Oh, well that sounds kind of silly, right? I mean, sure you can plan to make it to the Farmers Market to buy the flowers you will need but you most likely won't know the exact placement of each stem before you're in the moment, right?
My favorite creations have all been adapted from their original version during the process of making them. One great example are some cookies that I've been trying to make recently. I've been a terrible baker in the past but have always envied a good sugar cookie! So, I decided to take the task on and I ended up with these! Looks pretty decent for a first timer, right?
Anyway, my point in how this relates to me is that I often reach much more potential than I thought I could if I just let myself be creative. Instead of holding strong to a template of what you think you're trying to do... let your mind wander!!!
Ok, that's enough words of wisdom for today! Oh, I love myself and my sarcasm!
