I’m Not Creative
It’s funny the lies we tell ourselves. Whether it was a seed planted in us long ago or an idea that developed from some chance experience, it amazes me how, as humans, we continue to feed our negative thoughts and let them permanently take root in our minds.
If I had a nickel for every time Mr. Blue Eyed Yonder has said, “I’m not creative,” I swear I could retire and move to the south of France. I’m pretty sure you guys could all vouch for the exact opposite of this statement. While he may not be the one to dream up the majority of Blue Eyed Yonder’s projects, I can promise you, he is almost 100% involved in their execution. He never ceases to flat out amaze me with his talents. I often catch myself saying, “Is there anything this guy can’t do?” (This is when my Mom likes to remind me that he can’t have a baby, haha! Thanks for keeping it real, Mom.)
He has such a gift when it comes to creating things – anything! When I was up against a deadline and could not place an order in time for some custom stamps he simply says, “I’ll make them. It can’t be that hard.” (No joke, is this guy for real?)
So Mr. BEY handcarved these rubber stamps to represent some of our inventory categories. It’s little projects like this that make me laugh when he says he’s not creative.
I think creativity comes in many different forms. We each have our own individual gifts that express themselves in different ways. It’s time we all just cut ourselves a little slack. Stop feeding those negative thoughts and realize that we all have our own unique creative stamp. Embrace it, share it.
