Engaging Creativity

Image

In a recent blog author Matthew May suggested we bring an artistic view to our work no matter what that work might be (including parenting). He suggested that the only way to be “fully involved” is to engage our creativity.

As a visual artist, this type of thinking excites me. It puts greater value on what artists do beyond the “product.” May believes that there is a great deal of value in the process itself. Engaging your own personal creativity works in other aspects of life (think STEAM) and gives you a greater sense of fulfillment.
