Creative People are:

This poster caught my attention this morning and I immediately shared it, asking “Any other creatives relate to this?”  Yes there were. and the replies came back{


The poster got me thinking about how I do love to color outside the lines and I don’t like rules. My mother used to say about me “Anything to be different!” I also know that recently I haven’t been doing much painting, one of my many forms of creativity that brings me so much joy. No 8: change their mind a lot  stood up for me too.  Today I have changed my mind again on what I really really want to be doing her at Heart Whisper. When I mentioned this to Des he said I need to come to the realisation myself that I hadn’t been following my heart. That is why you haven’t been seeing my art for sale, the alkaline recipe book that my friend Jean has asked me  about and I said was coming, my heart whisper oracle cards, my book  and more are half completed. To be honest the word procrastination comes to mind. 


This is a cry I often hear. NOT TRUE we are all creative in some way every day. As Osho says:

“To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.” 

I have put together a collection of quotes and a wonderful Ted talk on creativity, I hope will inspire you and help you untap your creativity.

  1. I am such an inspiration quote junkie that I just LOVE these. All of them are so good!!! Thank you for sharing! I think I am going to pin these now… 😛

  2. Love this Suzie and found it really inspiring for the creative muse within me! I can really relate to your comment about having half finished projects hanging around 🙂 I have always followed my heart, but sometimes too many great ideas come all at once. Now I’m inspired to get moving on a couple and bring them to completion. Thanks xx

  3. Great post Suzie! The quotes are really inspirational and some of those images are just beautiful! I’ve saved the Joseph Chiltern Pearce to desktop for a daily reminder.

    Thank you! 🙂

  4. I love to share these enlightening and positive quotes. I like how you add backgrounds for these. Keep on sharing these kinds of quotes.

  5. I love these quotes. I pinned a few to my Creativity Pinterest board. I especially like – “Creativity is contagious.” Just being around creative people makes me feel more creative. I’m guessing the background on some of the quotes are your own paintings – beautiful!

  6. Great post. Will be pinning many of these quotes and the way you presented them is beautiful. There must be a spectrum on a scale of creativity. When you are in flood like you are, thee are many paths to take. My creativity is expressed thru my beaded jewelry designs, occassionally in writing and my joy of color.

  7. Love the quotes and I checked positive for every one of the creative characteristics. I think my favorite quote of all is “To live a creative life we must lose our fear of being wrong.” But I would alter it just a bit to “lose our fear of being judged.” I personally don’t know too many creative types worried about being wrong as much as they do about others misjudging or misunderstanding the message behind their works. Thanks for the colorful inspiration!

  8. So understand this. It’s just another creative block. I started up my morning pages again and I’m recognizing where I’m blocking myself and I find that solutions or new ideas are appearing. I’m feeling more energetic too. The energy flags when the creativity is stymied. You’ll find your way again. We are all going through transitions, finding our ways to be joy filled. Hugs
