I love to play games and have fun with my nephews and niece, my goddaughter and her sister, with friends and family. I enjoy arts and crafts, and playing games, too.
One of the things I appreciate about having children in my life is we can be sure to make time to get creative and playful. Kids love to do things like dancing spontaneously and jumping on the bed. You don’t have to be particularly talented to have a great time getting crafty with kids. That’s the beauty of it! That’s what playing is all about. It’s not about getting it perfect.
Yesterday, I was carving pumpkins with my nephew, Mikey, and we had a great time – I’ve been carving pumpkins with my niece and nephews for many years, and it’s always about having fun.
Mikey and I spent some time looking at Halloween magazines – Martha Stewart pumpkin creations – and they were absolutely fabulous. But trying to carve one like that would have stressed us both out.
We aren’t going for the most creative or artistic pumpkin. We’re all about enjoying the journey. Honestly, I don’t think we would enjoy the end result any more if we had created some kind of fantastic masterpiece. After all, it’s just going to get moldy and eaten by the squirrels after a week of sitting out on the porch.
It’s like making a sand mandala, a sand castle, or baking a beautiful pie. The Joy is in the expression of Creativity BECAUSE it is a spiritual quality, and when we are creative, then we’re expressing our divinity. It’s not about preserving the end result. It’s about tapping into our God-Self which is our Creative Self.
We can be creative in SO MANY areas of life, if we choose to be. It’s about letting Spirit flow through us and not getting hung up on comparisons. Compare and despair. Comparisons aren’t needed.
