To Live a Creative Life

To live a creative life we must lose our fear of being wrong.

I love the little collection of blue bottles that my daughter-in-law Bethany has found at yard sales.

Treasures all, and practical too, but one stands out. It’s a fish, with scales and fins, and a cork for a nose.

Someone woke up one morning decades ago and decided to make a bottle in the shape of a fish. I like to think this someone had never before seen such a bottle. It’s an odd idea. But the creator was not stopped by the oddity or the lack of precedence. And here’s the bottle, still intact, and it’s my favorite in the collection.

How about you? Do you have an idea that you hesitate to follow up on because it’s a bit odd? So what if your idea is new or different? Go for it! You just may create a treasure.

Linking up with Project 52.

Great question…I think it is human nature to speculate that others might think we are odd for a new idea. What a shame that we do this to ourselves isn’t it? I found a old bottle on the beach this weekend…so could relate to this post.
