CREATIVITY LESSONS FROM CHILDREN

(Sara Hussain, Karachi)

Children are the most innocent creature of GOD. As our elder says 'bachay man k sachay', children never fear failure or humiliation. they just say what they want to say. Children are more confident, more courageous and enjoy life far more intensely than adults. As we grew older, we begin to lost our creative side and fear of being different. Here's some creative lessons our younger selves give us everyday.

For children, everyday is a new day means new opportunities to make new friends, explore new adventures, learn new things. They don't carry baggage from one day to the next. They start fresh always. As we get older, we bound ourselves in limits. Children are limitless, they sing out loud, dance when they feel like it, play with colors, paint horse pink and tree red. Children have the beautiful ability to find joy all around them. Just watch the humor a child can find in a shopping mall or at the park. They are active all the time and do every homework with new level of excitement unlike adults, who take every work as new burden and duty.

Children march forward with new hope, always ready to make new friends.

You would have definitely noticed that when your child or niece tells you a story about school or the play ground, they are usually the hero of their story. The world revolves around them. As we get older, we don't want to be egotistic, so we downplay our accomplishments and achievements but in doing so, we put ourselves down to make other feel better. Modesty becomes an admirable quality and we start to convince ourselves of our own mediocrity. So, the big lesson here is that " be the hero of your life, not a victim".

Another quality of our younger selves is that they wear scars as the badges of honor. When they break a bone or fall down and cut their selves, everyone wants to see the scar and they proudly show it to everyone. As we become adults, we hide our scars, afraid of being pitied.

Everyone's childhood is crazy, creative and joyful then why we kill our creativity when we get older.
"Creativity is fearless, boundless and limitless”.
