Day 28: You Create

Saturday, June 7, 2014

You know those times when you walk through a museum or other artistic display and think....."Well, whatever creative abilities I thought I had are now non-existant."


Been there, done that. 


BUT, a talk given a short while ago by Dieter F. Uchtdorf about creating, changed that.   


(Oh, and btw....this post is kinda long.....so if you wanna skip to the video at the end.....he says it better than I do.....or better than even written text does;)


He said: "You might say, “I’m not the creative type." If that is how you feel, think again, and remember that you are spirit sons and daughters of the most creative Being in the universe. Isn’t it remarkable to think that your very spirits are fashioned by an endlessly creative and eternally compassionate God? 


You may think you don’t have talents, but that is a false assumption, for we all have talents and gifts, every one of us. The bounds of creativity extend far beyond the limits of a canvas or a sheet of paper and do not require a brush, a pen, or the keys of a piano.  


Creation means bringing into existence something that did not exist before—colorful gardens, harmonious homes, family memories, flowing laughter."


That talk has given me the drive to continue to create.....to not be shy in attempting (emphasis in attempting;) to create.


"No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before. Everyone can create. You don’t need money, position, or influence in order to create something of substance or beauty.

Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty."  (Elder Dieter F Uchtdorf)



Day 28: You Create.



Create whatever it is that you can, or would like to create. It doesn't have to be perfect or even pretty. Just create! Bring to existance something that did not exist before!!






I know......video.......we're upgrading from photos;)
