Set yourself free and create!

Want to revitilize your spirit? Then try something creative.

You don't have to be a Michelangelo or an Einstein. You just have to be you. Leave your worries at the door and let your mind play with the world a little bit.

Remember the character of Caractacus Potts, played by Dick Van Dyke in the movie "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang"? He locks himself up in his barn with an old wreck of a car and, after much clanging and banging, emerges days later with an amazing vehicle that can drive, float and fly.

Yes, it was a children's movie, but the process of creating something original is really about letting go of some our mental blocks, prejudices and adult concerns. Being more like children is a great way to tap into our hidden potential.

We don't all have to be great inventors, but deep down we all have creative talents that are just waiting to be discovered. The satisfaction that results is a reminder that there's something quite natural about creating. It's one of the things that make us human.

Incidentally, did you know that the "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" story was written by Ian Fleming, the very same writer who created the James Bond stories? Talk about versatility.

If you want to get YOUR creative juices flowing, the web has some useful sites.

Here are some of them:
