CDF: Creative

When some people talk about creativity, they limit the concept to pursuits which are obviously artistic, such as painting, sculpting, dancing, craft projects, and the like. But using it as a Core Desired Feeling for 2016 means so much more! Creativity as a CDF is about claiming and developing a creative mindset. It is about approaching challenges as opportunities to “think outside the box” and practice creative problem solving.

Creativity is energizing for me, though some may find it draining. Seeking to create beauty in everything I do – cooking, cleaning, gardening, parenting, exercising, teaching, writing – makes me happy. Another 2016 CDF? Bonus! And it enriches the lives of the people around me, like my family, my readers, and my students.

Infusing my life with creativity increases and enhances my happiness and blesses others.
