CREATIVITY IN EVERYDAY LIFE

There are so many different ways of being creative; painting, drawing, cooking, writing, singing, composing and the list goes on and on. No matter what your passion is, you are most likely being creative. With every brush stroke, cake baked, string strummed, word written, you are expressing your emotions and getting in touch with a different part of your mind. Creativity is one way you can stretch your mind to the limit and expose what you are really made of.

Creativity is a basic element in many human endeavors, such as art and design, music, literature, structural design and performance. In the same vein, in art, journalism and structural design; the individual should see the end product before they begin drawing, writing and designing respectively. No industry can do without it.

As a matter of fact, art, music and journalism are one of the most creative professions I know. For example, when you take these three to a landscape; a musician will compose a piece depicting what he has seen and will use a key signature either in a minor key if the outlook is sad or a major key if it is happy.
Additionally, he will use modulation to shift the mood of the music. He can, furthermore, use improvisation to append excitement to the music. I am a musician and know that very well. Creativity is a very important aspect in music and musicians partner skill with improvisation to bring to life artistic and creative compositions.

The artist, on the other hand will paint either still life or abstract art. He will use distinct colors that depict the mood of the scenery and can blend colors to bring out a creative piece of art all by the stroke of a brush.

Lastly, the journalist will describe and narrate the story as he sees it but will bring in inventiveness and certain figures of speech to spice up the article. In these three professions creativity is king and without it all would be repetitive and uninteresting.

Now, you will agree with me that, creativity is one ingredient that in short supply in a lot of our musical compositions, products, designs, media productions and the list is endless. If we are to break away from mediocrity then creativity is the way to go. Why? Because creativity is letting go of the familiar.
