Nature is creative. It’s always finding a way around challenges and obstacles, effortlessly forging new paths and landscapes as it goes. As part of Nature, you also have it in you to be effortlessly creative.
But when you focus too hard on a problem or a desired outcome, you can sometimes stifle your creative ability to solve that problem.
For example, have you ever noticed how sometimes, if you’re focusing really hard on a problem, you can lose your sense of perspective, feeling like you can’t see the wood for the trees? And conversely, how some of your best ideas come to you when you least expect them to?
That’s because creativity can’t be forced. It’s a living thing, and needs space and light and air to breathe….
That’s why when we are trying to solve relationship problems with our partner, we can sometimes feel stuck, and become frustrated.
So if you and your partner are feeling stuck and frustrated in your relationship in trying to solve a problem or reach a compromise, ask yourselves this: when did you last take a day off and have fun? When did you last spend time together that wasn’t focused on your problems?
If you can’t remember, perhaps it’s time to just have fun together.
Go out and do something you enjoy and make a rule to not talk about the issue. It’s amazing what ideas and solutions can come through you when you relax and allow them to!
