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!

Your Creative Voice

It is so very important for you to tap into your voice. Listen to your creative voice. It is wonderful to be inspired by the work of others. However, when you create you should make sure that you are being as you as possible. No one else can be you as well as you can be you. Your voice is unique and needed. Someone, somewhere, is going to be inspired or learn something from what you have to offer the universe. If you like a style, poem, song, or piece of art feel free to take that inspiration and run with it. Just make sure that you are doing it your way, not trying to do it the way it was originally done.

Be honest and true to your creative voice. It has wonderful things to say and share. You just have to trust in it.
