When I think of people who have changed my life, I include writers, artists and other creative types whom I've never met but whose sharing through books, music, photography, paintings, sculptures and other forms has helped me grow. I have learned so much—and continue to learn—because of my exposure to the creativity and sharing of others.
That leads me to wonder whether any of my creativity and sharing has made a difference in the lives of others. And further, I wonder whether you can imagine that your words, songs or art linger in the hearts and minds of others. Or perhaps it's your love of cooking. Or sewing. There are so many artistic and creative expressions—and so many ways to share those gifts.
Everyone has something to share. What's your gift? What's your purpose? What's your passion? In what areas of life are you creative? Or do you have more exploring to do in order to discover that? If so, what are you waiting for? Is there something that holds you back from sharing yourself and your gifts?
Go ahead. Put yourself out there and share the best of you! You may never know what that might mean in the lives of others. But count on it: You'll make a difference to someone.
