We are all human and humans need to create
One characteristic of being human is the capacity to materialize an idea.
You are able to transform something that just exists in your head to something existing in our material world. Not only is this a nice capability to us to make us feel good. We want to feel good. We need it. Therefore, we need to create.
Since the very beginning, humanity has been evolving through creations. That is why creation is part of human nature. It belongs to us and completes us as individuals and as a species.
We might not always notice we are creating - going from very big things around and outside the world, to little trivial ones in our homes. When you figure out a new recipe for dinner for example or a more effective organization of a closet. All the time we work out an idea, we are creating.
Seeing our ideas working out gives us levels of happiness and satisfaction. The magnitude of these emotions depends on the impact that this new creation will have in our life and the life of others.
Yes, you can create as well
There are people who dedicate their life to creating. Their jobs are creating businesses, buildings, artifacts, all kind of art; anything you can imagine. But others live their lives going in directions where creativity is not demanded. They work many hours in routine jobs, muting that vital part of our nature.
Do you belong to the last group of people?
Let me remind you then that all humans can create. This belongs to our kind, as also the enthusiasm we feel when we are creating and the happiness and satisfaction of contemplating our creations. To provide yourself with the opportunity of working with enthusiasm and satisfaction, will increase happiness in your life.
