Word of the Year: Creativity

In the past few weeks, I have read some articles about women who choose a word for the year.  The word is to keep them on track and to provide a touchstone throughout the year.  I find the idea fascinating and decided that my word would be creativity.  The definition of creativity is originality, progressiveness, or imagination.  Keeping the definition in mind, I am going to expand on it and include the following:

  • being creative in all aspects of my life including crafting, photography and cooking
  • use inspiration from Pinterest and publications to fuel it
  • use the items that I have in my stash to create beautiful works of art
  • be more proactive in the recycling arena by creating upcycled pieces

Being creative is essential to my soul.  When I am in the creative mode, all worries and concerns disappear and I become very focused.  I just create and enjoy the process.  I often tell my friends that creating pieces of art is therapy for me.  So far, I have had a very creative year and look forward to it being very productive as well.  Do you have a word of the year?  Please share if you do.

I chose the photo above because it is a creative way to use pasta.  I took that photo outside of a restaurant in Rome and many people have mistaken it for a real flower.  For the next few Mondays, I will share photos from our trip to Rome.  Stay tuned!
