What does “create” mean? There is mention of the creation of the universe. Artists create music,
paintings, literary works and so on.
But what does create mean? Goggle says “bring (something) into existence. I completely agree
with this definition.
Some might say that only God can create. Though there is man and there is woman. Working
together, they can create new bodies, babies. Perhaps that is God working through the man and
the woman but they certainly had something to do with it.
When I decided to write this article, just the title is a creation. While it is only two words together,
it is also a statement of fact.
As I put together the words to make my points, I have many choices of how I want to create
interest. I have choices of where I want to place emphasis. That focus is my creation.
My creation, my focal point is on you.
You Are an Artist. Artist Create.
I've watched many talented artists. I am always amazed at how clever and incredible they are.
I also know many people who don't call themselves artists. They are artists still based on their
Watch a bum or derelict person on the street. They portray being a helpless victim. They seek to
gain sympathy and pity. They motions are slow, painful, lacking purpose and yet that is a
creation! While they would never admit it, very likely deny it, that is the roll in the game of life they
You can watch a young girl out with her boy friend. Her entire image, they way she carries herself,
her mannerism are all examples of creating positive effects!
Now not all young girls seek that type sophisticated image. Some want to be viewed as tough,
uncaring and perhaps disrespectful. They manage to do a great job of creating that image.
Then there's the important looking business person. They look busy, in a hurry, out to accomplish
important task, often out to impress. There are many gradients of this, all are creation by the
Decisions are Creations
Every day, we each make many decisions. Do I get up with the alarm or hit snooze? (I make a
policy never to snooze as that is what my body wants to do!)
What do I wear today? Do I dress to impress or consider the environment I'll be working in and be
Each decision changes our future. Each decision creates alternatives that were not there before
we decided what it would be!
We Create Our Future.
Regardless of our level of ability or in the case of the bum, disability, we create our own future.
You may thank God for your good fortune or curse the Devil for your bad luck. Either way, your
decision created the fortune or the bad luck.
The more pro-survival decisions you make, the better your “luck” will be. Do I go to work or sleep
in today; pay the bills or let them go delinquent?
If you make a big enough bad decision, you might create the end of your own life such as
drinking and driving. A better decision would be to have someone else drive. Still better decision
is don't drink toxic beverages!
If you are alive, your creations have been, for the most part, better than they were bad.
What Influences Your Creations?
A better question is "who influences your creations?"
Have you been around prisoners, drug addicts or dying people? Where did they put your
Did you have lots of light hearted thoughts about aesthetics in the future? Or did they put you
into the past with your attention on loss or potential losses? Did you think what a shame, it's a
Toxic people tend to kill your creativeness. If you hang with them long enough, they will probably
kill you, drive you to your death. Dying people lose their creativeness. Dying people take others
down with them.
Get away from the toxic, low emotional tone, negative people.
What was That Project You Wanted to Do?
When I ask myself that question, I immediately come up with two ideas I've had that I never
finished creating on. There is some attention there.
To increase my creativeness, I'm going to finish those projects. They won't take a lot of time.
Putting order into my life requires I finish things I've started.
Planning a Bright New Future
Perhaps you don't think things can get better. I promise you that if you don't take some positive
actions, you will probably be correct.
By just getting the idea of how things could be better, you can take baby steps in that direction. I
want to clear my back yard. That would be an improvement. So every time I can, I take something
and put it in the trash. Slowly it's getting better.
What area do you see that could be more ideal, more perfect? What steps could you take to
gradually improve your life?
The Way To Happiness.
I use The Way To Happiness as a moral guide in my day to day life. It is not a religious text. The
people I know that have read it, all agree with its precepts.
You might give it a try. You can watch the videos on my site about them or go to their site. They
are very well done.
If you need gentle assistance, contact me. I am trained in resolving conflicts very successfully.
Helping someone spot what condition(s) and what the solutions are to handle them is exactly
what I do in life.
Improving the conditions of others is my destination and purpose in life. A little true knowledge can
go a long way. I do not ask that you believe anything!
Routinely I say #EverythinWill_B_OK!I believe that is true!
Also, “A person is only as valuable as he aids others in their games of survival!”
