Technology has made women more creative. I know blogging and technology has made me more creative. I don’t think I’ve ever had as much fun as starting a blog, writing, and learning new photography skills.

One of my favorite quotes is..

“The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. 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” (Dieter F. Uchtdorf)

I agree with that quote. Here are a few things I’ve thought about lately.

I love how little girls start to be creative at a young age. For example, I’ve watched my granddaughter play with containers and cheerios. She organizes the containers, fills up the containers with cereal, eats some, changes the containers around, and starts the process all over again. I’ve watched her lay out a blanket, smooth it out, find her favorite toy, and lay down. I’ve watched her cuddle her doll. I’ve seen her blow kisses and wave goodbye. Where does she learn all this? I think she has a great desire to create and it starts with the little, tiny things that I’ve mentioned above. Women are born to create.

Just today, while waiting at a stop sign, I watched a young teenager walking across the street while talking on her phone. She was using one hand to explain things to the person she was talking to. Her body language had compassion and empathy for the person she was talking to. I imagined she was talking to her Dad explaining her problem, or to her aunt telling her about a new boyfriend. She naturally was a conversationalist. Women are born to create.

Several weeks ago I watched several women gather together to honor a special friend. The friend has cancer and seems to be struggling to her final days. She has surprised and strengthened everyone as she continues to carry on. She has talent to love and accept everyone she meets. Our gathering gave us an opportunity, as a group of friends, to let her know how much she means to us and to tell her we love her dearly. Games were played, food eaten, and stories shared. Women are born to create.

There are so many creative bloggers. I have loved seeing blogging, facebook, and things like pinterest explode before our eyes. It has been fun to watch women learn, grow friendships, improve marriages, and love one another. I love seeing all the link-ups with good ideas, beautiful photos, notes of encouragement, and improved writing skills.

It is true that women have a need to create. We are born with so many good skills. I used to be jealous of ladies who could do ‘this’ and ‘that’ and wished I was like them. Not any more. It would be sad if we all had the same skills and talents. Now I cheer when I see women who share their talents. All women have talents and can improve and acquire new talents. I hope we all support each other with our talents. How boring would it be if we all did well at the same thing. Creative women from young to old have my support. It is true – women are born to create.
