Have you ever felt like creativity is a gift only meant for others? Like you just weren’t born part of that illustrious and somewhat mysterious “creative class?”  Total bunk. Creativity lives inside all of us—and uncovering it could unlock meaning and joy in every aspect of your life? In this conversation, Cynthia and I explore the myths holding us back from full creative living. She reveals three brutally hard truths of innovation, and why the creative life isn't about chasing comfort. We discuss how to awaken your senses, see with new eyes, and understand your unique blend of creativity. In today’s episode we’re digging into: How do you know when you are being creative? What are the signs or feelings that indicate you have tapped into your own creativity? Where does the "muse" or creative inspiration come from - is it something within us or does it come from outside of us?  How can we challenge what we think we know and let ourselves be surprised in order to expand creativity in our work and relationships? How can we cultivate and tune our senses to see familiar things in new ways and spark creativity?
