The Magic Wand:
As mentioned in a previous post, people naturally tend to view creativity through the lens of stupendous display of talent, and in terms of great inventions alone. On the contrary however, creativity is expressed in the little things we do in our everyday lives.
It is the magic wand which gives a colourful twist to the otherwise ordinary, boring and sometimes even challenging details of our daily lives.
For instance, creativity is articulated in our daily lives each time we
– see old regular things in new light,
– see fresh possibilities in routine and mundane (i.e. ordinary) things of everyday life,
– see new opportunities in seemingly challenging situations and difficulties we face.
Therefore, we need to start discovering new and exciting prospects to our everyday lives and circumstances for innovation to be evident through us.
Open the eyes of my understanding, and let me begin to see fresh opportunities, great possibilities, exciting twists to mundane, ordinary, and even challenging everyday events and circumstances surrounding my life. In Jesus name. Amen.
