A creative outlet is like a good piece of chocolate, you crave it and are satisfied for a bit before you just want to try another one. If we were created in His image and He is a creator than it stands to reason we would be instilled with that same desire and drive to create. I spend all day doing science and math left brain nerdy things. By weeks end I feel like the right side of my brain is starved and screaming, “Let me create”. I have tried and enjoyed so many hobbies, sewing, jewelry, stamping, glass beads, painting, faux finishing, knitting, crocheting and the list goes on. Recently I sold my remaining glass bead making supplies to a friend. Initially I felt like I was giving up on a hobby or interest. Almost like neglecting a puppy that wants to play. After some reflection it was quite the opposite. I had passed it on for a new life with someone that will use my neglected hobby to feed their right brain. . I had passed it on for a new life with someone that will use my neglected hobby to feed their right brain. My right brain rejoiced “yea another crafty” and I realized it was fun to share what I no longer had a need for. I’ve been on a sewing kick for about a year now. Such a right brain indulgence. I feel like I’ve invested in it to be more than a playful puppy, rather an exciting a new venture. Lets hope so!
So what fuels your right brain, and what have you put up for adoption?
