Are You Ignoring Your Creative Side Because of Your 9-5?

In my eyes, humans are art. All humans hold beauty inside of them. We have the ability to create. I believe that every single human being has a creative side to them, regardless of what that creativity may be. Some may love to draw. Some may love to write. Some may love to sing. Some may love to play instruments. Some may love to dance. Some may love to conduct scientific experiments. Some may want to create their own small business. Some may want to invent something. Whatever it may be, I hope that you don’t ignore it because you feel like you are too busy. I hope that you remain human even when you are living a structured life.

There are many people who have this misconception that if someone has a 9-5, they aren’t living life to their full potential. I have seen people constantly criticize people for working in the corporate field because they are acting like robots. Perhaps, many people do forget their humanity. However, there is nothing wrong with having a 9-5, if that is truly what that person wants to do. The only tragedy is when people completely destroy their humanity for a job that does not fulfill them. The only tragedy occurs when they stop doing what they love. The only tragedy that appears is when they stop being creative and they stop using who they are to their full potential. I hope that you set yourself free.   I challenge you to remember your creative side and utilize it.

Here are 5 habits to form that will help you keep your creative side outside of your 9-5: 

1. Write down what you are passionate about

Write down everything that you love to do. Write down what it is that you want to create. Be in touch with the things what make you feel human. Do you like to write? Then, write. Do you like to draw? Then, draw. Do you like to create? Then, create. Write down things that you want to accomplish. When you write them down, you will be more likely to follow through with them.

2. Allocate your time wisely

You will have plenty of time from the moment that you get out of work until you go to sleep, to allocate some time to creating whatever it is that you want to create. No one is ever too busy to do what they love, even if it is for just a few minutes a day. Make time.

3. Don’t lose sight of your vision

  Life can be overwhelming, especially if you have too many things going on. When you wake up, think of what makes your heart beat. Think of all of your passions. Think of your strengths. Remember the big picture. When you do this, it will be easier to focus on your goals.

4. Don’t forget to constantly learn about yourself

It is important to have conversations with yourself and analyze how you feel. You learn something new about yourself every single day. Learn to listen to what it is your heart wants and try to understand what is missing in your life. I believe that you can do anything that you put your mind to. Pay attention. This is how you will grow. This is how you will be able to create.

5. Dream, but also do

You don’t only dream when you are asleep. You can dream while you are awake. However, you need to know that dreaming is not enough. Don’t only dream. Turn your dreams into reality. Create.
