I just filled a questionnaire that popped up when I opened os.me. The questions asked about the experience we got by using os.me (this is what I remembered, hopefully, I’m not wrong). It was fun filling the questionnaire 😀 After filling in the answer, I realize one thing. I think os.me makes me feel creative!
I bet everyone has their own creative pursuit to some extent. Where is your creative journey leads? Before, I hope to become a graphic designer. But then I was interested to become an architect. Alas, I got into accounting study. How on earth can I be creative? Yes, one can be creative with accounting, but that means breaking the law 😀 But, I don’t want to ditch a creative life just because I study accounting.
Does every creative thing need to be artsy? I don’t think so. It is a common misconception. Actually, everyone is creative! One doesn’t need to be an artist or label with one. Because every single thing we do needs some level of creativity. For example, choosing the next thing to eat also needs some creative decisions. It would be boring if we eat the same thing again and again, right? Not to mention that eating the same food will not nourish us in the long run. Even to just be healthy, we need creativity to some extent.
Also, we can see the proof of everyone’s creativity; here! In this platform, os.me. Every time I open os.me, there’s always something new to read. It’s the result of your own creativity!
“It always surprises me when people say, “I’m not a very creative person.” Because the thing is, if you’re alive, you’re creating. You’re creating thoughts, friendships, new cells, hairdos, joys, problems, solutions, sentences, routes to work, truths to live by, perhaps the occasional avocado toast. You are an artist and your masterpiece is your life.”

Creativity adds color to our life (literally and figuratively). My drawer is filled with colored pencils, sketchbooks, balls of yarns, knitting, or origami papers. There are some UFOs–Unidentified unFinished Object–tucked in my drawer. Because of os.me, now I turn my creative pursuit to writing. Now, I have some UFOs in my note-taking app 😀
Sometimes I’m afraid that what I write maybe already said. However, know that it hasn’t been said again by you! Everyone is different, you are different. So, what you’re going to say, even if the context might be already said before, will be different.
“But surely something wonderful is sheltered inside you. I say this with all confidence, because I happen to believe we are all walking repositories of buried treasure. I believe this is one of the oldest and most generous tricks the universe plays on us human beings, both for its own amusement and for ours: The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.”
Elizabeth Gilbert – Big Magic
Creativity is not only about art. It’s about how we live our life. It’s about tidying up your home, cook a delicious meal, host a dinner party; all require creativity. Everyone is creative. You are creative!
