Someone actually told me that the other day. That didn’t resonate well with me.
Being the psych-major-freak that I am, I fired this one back at them. J
According to a scientific article I read recently, a professor from St. Lawrence University, by the name of Dr. Searleman found that:
“Left-handers have a higher ‘fluid’ intelligence and better vocabulary than the majority of the population. This is perhaps why there are more of them in creative professions, such as music, art and writing.”
Therefore, I am, IN FACT, empirically-proven to be creative.
But what even is creativity? I think I’m creative in the way that I dress, the way I’m a go-getter, and the friends that I have. (That’s a compliment, guys.)
Webster’s says being creative is to be “marked by the ability or power to create” or to “have the quality of something created rather than imitated.” Can you imagine how powerful our youthful generations would be if they had this definition memorized?
(Stepping onto the soap box…) Think about what makes you creative. What is that one thing that you can do better than anyone else you know? Yeah, yeah, Gregor Mendell proved that we have traits passed down to us from our parents, grandparents, great-grand parents, great-great…you get the picture. But even twins can be nothing alike.
What if everyone was asked this question and THEN asked to respond on their thought. How many evils could be conquered by people simply acting on the significance they were born with? I don’t know if there’s a number for that - probably because you can’t put a limit on creativity.
I could get deep into this and glue my feet to my soap box, but I think there’s plenty to ponder on from the few things I wrote here.
Please, just have a revelation that there is no one like you.
“Whether it is an elementary school in Newtown, or a shopping mall in Oregon, or a temple in Wisconsin, or a movie theater in Aurora, or a street corner in Chicago, these neighborhoods are our neighborhoods and these children are our children.” - the President of the USA
Childhood is not from birth to a certain age and at a certain age
The child is grown, and puts away childish things.
Childhood is the kingdom where nobody dies.
