This heuristic inquiry explored the experience of recognising creativity in everyday life. The phenomenological approach (Husserl, 1900/1970) was adopted in order to explore the subjective experience on an introspective and perceptual level. This heuristic research involved thorough data collection and analysis methods outlined by Moustakas (1990). The serendipitous findings explain that creativity is intrinsic within internal and external realities. Subsequently by recognising and engaging with everyday creativity; I consequently contextualized myself within the environment where creativity is embedded. Reflections upon this experience consider wellbeing, tacit interpretation, heightened awareness and interconnectedness between the self and the world. The creative synthesis resulting from this inquiry represents my personal perceptual experience.
