Unique Creativity – Use your voice!

The wonderful thing about being individuals is that we are all blessed with our own unique story to tell.

Ten people could experience the exact same situation but none of their experiences are the same.

We are shaped by our past experiences. We view things differently because of how we were raised, what we have experienced in the past, and our knowledge base. This is a gift.

If you find a story that you want to tell, don’t be afraid to tell it. The fact that it has been done before doesn’t matter. It hasn’t been told by you.

The key to this is to make sure that you are using your unique voice and not consciously or unconsciously copying what has already been done. Use your perspective to see things from different angles.

This goes for all areas of creativity. While writing tells stories, so do pictures and other visual arts. You can tell a story with a five course dinner.

Whatever your outlet is, get in there and practice. The more you are exercising your creativity, the louder and more distinct your voice becomes. The louder and more distinct your voice becomes, the more comfortable you will be with it.

Remember no one can be creative the way you can be creative!
