Does Creativity Affect Your Relationships?

NOTE: If you’ve been following the blog, you may notice that the travel notes got a little messed up recently. You may find some pictures and their stories got repeated. Sorry. I think I’ve gotten myself straightened out now.

Exploring Your Personality # 13:

Creativity

ASK YOURSELF THESE QUESTIONS:

Do I believe I am creative? If so, what do I have to show for my creativity? If not, why do I feel this way?

Is there something I’ve been wanting to create for a long time and keep putting off? If so, what is it? What stops me from doing it?

Does my creativity or the creativity of another person have a great deal to do with how we get along?

These questions complement the Better Tomorrows Program for healing strained and broken relationships and are part of the blog’s series of questions for exploring who you are.

To explore other questions, see Ask Yourself Questions and Change Your Life, Healing Relationships is an Inside Job, and the Q-and-A Club.

Can You Make Towel Swans?

When we sailed down the Nile two years ago, we would come back to our rooms and find our towels twisted in shapes that represented elephants, birds, flags, flowers, and even on one night as a monkey hanging from the ceiling. That was the only other cruise we took in which we slept on board before we visited the Gallapagos and the Amazon on our recent trip. For the trip up the inner passage in Alaska we had a Days-Afloat-Nights-Ashore so didn’t know that many cruise crews make clever designs from the towels.

I attended a program in which the crew demonstrated how to make these and I’ll tell you that they are a bit harder than you might think, though not impossible for an amateur. Maybe I’ll make some for guests in the future, and then again I may not.
