The first blog I wrote on this website on April 18 of this year, Creativity During COVID-19, was also the first blog I’d ever written. I’ve had a great time these past three months, writing, exploring myself, and interacting and engaging with totally new people.
All super cool and amazing people. All of you are. Fun.
I wasn’t even thinking about writing a part 2 to that initial post, until I came across the picture above. I had also, however, recently been thinking and reflecting upon the state of the COVID-19 virus across the country, and the tremendously scary impact it is having on people, business, well, on everything and everyone.
It also got me thinking about how the country, and greater world, will need everyone, really, everyone to step up by contributing their creative potential to their communities, states, and countries. Really. Why?
Because we’ve not yet nearly seen the end of the virus’s impact, which is going to last well into the future.
And, it will take all of us, each of us contributing what we can. Contributing our passion, expertise, and especially our creativity and love to developing new ways to live and work. New ways to be.
As I’ve written about in other posts, we are all creative. All of us. Creativity is where we find our highest potential, our highest power.
Creating ourselves each day, creating relationships again and again, creating business models, financial models, education models, healthcare models, and governmental models.
The list is endless of what will need to be created and recreated.
We will need to recreate all that we previously knew; and create whole new ways to move us forward. Individually and collectively. Yep, both.
What to do?
If you are already creating and contributing, wonderful. If not, join the fray. Start creating. Today. Right now. Create what is inside of you, your unique contribution.
You are one of a kind. No one else can contribute just like you. No one. Not possible. Your creativity and passion is one of a kind. And, the world needs it. We all need it.
I’m inviting each of you to step outside of your comfort zone, and contribute as you are able. Contribute locally, create something that’s never been seen before. Create it. Recreate something that once worked well in our previous reality, which doesn’t work today. Recreate it.
If you think you can’t, don’t know how, or aren’t talented enough.
Let me be the first person to tell you, that you can, you can learn how, and you are more than talented enough. You are all of those things, and so much more.
Be well. Create well.
