I bet something came up for you. My husband is an engineer, he applies creativity often in his work. As a mom, when my girls were little, I made fun lunches; sandwiches & snacks in shapes to entice my littles to eat their school snacks. And yes, for sure was sending a message to them.
For me, creativity as an art practice, is one of self-expression, of storytelling, and of connection to myself. And yes, I am a professional artist so there is practicing my craft in there. However, I save some of my creative energy and inspiration just for me.
I feel creativity is a soul-nourishing, soul energizing and a soul fulfilling activity. It can be way to reconnect with your inner self and inner world. It can be a powerful healing tool, a self-care tool, and a mindful practice. And freedom if you get into the beautiful state called the zone.
