You may not not have yet discovered it, but every human (and a large number of us frogs) has a creative talent. Some of us find our creative calling when we're very young, like me. I knew when I was only a froglet that I wanted to write. Others, discover their creative side when they're older. Many retired persons take up painting or photography, for example. It's never too late to release your inner creative genius. And once you have found what it is that you were meant to do, the outlet for your work will come, as well. If you write, you can publish books, write for your local newspaper, start a blog, or volunteer to write "ad copy" for area nonprofits to help them with their cause or mission. Perhaps your skill is baking. Why not open a bakery, or sell your goodies to coffee shops. You can distribute them to the homeles or shut-in neighbors. Receiving a homemade treat, made with love, would brighten anyone's day, including your loved ones. Still others may have a talent for making things out of paperclips or popsicle sticks. It may sound silly, but it's not. You have a talent and skill that others don't. Teaching young people your skill is a wonderful way to share your talent, too. Why not spend an afternoon painting or gardening with your grandchildren? In addition to spending quality time, you might instill a love of artistic beauty in them. And how rewarding would that be! So whether you think large, or think small, the possibilities are endless. The world is waiting for your creativity to spring forth. There is not another person; past, present or future, that can offer what have to give. You are unique and, therefore, your talents will be unique, too. It doesn't matter if your creativity turns out to be a vocation or simply an advocation, let your light shine brightly. We're all waiting to see it!
