You’ve heard me talk about the power of a purpose before. Having one, that is. Baked into my purpose is a desire to create. Every day. That’s right, to a degree, I don’t feel truly centered or content unless I have had the opportunity to create something every day.
According to my online sources, “Being creative helps you become a better problem solver in all areas of your life and work. … Creativity helps you see things differently and better deal with uncertainty. Studies show that creative people are better able to live with uncertainty because they can adapt their thinking to allow for the flow of the unknown.”
Doesn’t that just sing to you?
Some of you know that I like to take pictures. As far as I am concerned, one of the best developments in my lifetime was the advent of the cellular phone, with the built-in camera. Of course, that also created a situation in which being a photographer was within just about anyone’s grasp. It’s not surprising that humans took more than 1.4 trillion photos in 2020. I’m glad that a small number of those were mine.
More importantly, having that device in my hand when I am out for a run, shopping, walking in the park or doing any number of things means that I can sate my desire to create with just a tap of my finger.
But that’s not the point. Today, I am curious to learn about what feeds your purpose. Like many of you, I am inspired by hearing what drives others. If you’re willing to share, send me a message or comment.
