Maybe we could make what we have available work for us. Even if the box is empty, it becomes space to fill with our imagination.
Most parents have experienced the phenomenon of their young children losing interest in the gift they received, and playing with the box that it came in. Children have a unique ability to use their imagination, and are very comfortable using what they have.
We creatives (which includes everybody - we were made in the image of the Creator, and therefore we are all creative) automatically look beyond what's there, and visualize what could be. There is nothing wrong with that. Perhaps we could open the box, look inside, and take inventory of what resources are available to us.
Those resources may include "stuff", finances, and people. Be creative and innovative, and leverage those available resources.
Look inside your box. What do you have to work with? If it is empty, how can you use the box?
Question: How have you thought inside the box in creativity or problem solving? Please respond below.
