Creativism — The path to creativity.
Creativism means being a creative soul, whose lifestyle, the way of living and all the actions taken are solely intended for the purpose to create better every next day, next moment.
Everything is driven to create better art, work, and creative life. Creativism is all about bringing the best in you and your art while living an intentional creative life and of creativity.
The bones of creativism are intentional acts to promote the things we would do to make the most as a creative soul and discarding of everything that distracts or restrain us from doing the creative work. The thick skin of creativism is in knowing what to discard that is stopping us from being a creative soul wholly.
The feet on which the creativism stands is craftsmanship.
Now, the dictionary defines craftsmanship as – “skill in a particular craft, or the quality of the design and work shown in something made by hand; artistry.”
Basically, an artistry skill practised in becoming a master at something.
You may ask, why craftsmanship?
A couple of months back, I realised something about how to grow as a creative bee and live a creative life.
The fact: somewhere we all are bound or forced to live a life where it is difficult to pursue the work we love to do and leave a mark with it. But a little change in our mindset can make a lot of differences. The mindset to focus on the process of creating art rather than on the external factors affecting the results.
For instance, focusing on the process of writing and getting better at it rather than just seeking vanity in likes.
That said, I also want to say, whenever you feel, you are moving away from living a creative life wholly, ask yourself —
Why do birds fly?
Is it to impress us or show us that they can fly and we can’t?
Or show off their flight in the air like a majestic stunt?
Or maybe because they have wings to fly and that is what they are supposed to do, fly and live life.
Also, do they think of us—human beings or human beings are superior to them in any way? No.
All they do: They fly.
I will be writing about creativism and much more in the blog. You can join me on this journey of Creativism.
I will be sharing my learning and experience, plus giving you a creative nudge.
