I usually adhere to a general rule to avoid re-blogging or re-posting other content from around the web – both to avoid falling into the trap of becoming one of those blogs (you know the ones) that constantly re-post other people’s thought, work, and mildly funny jokes from last year. When I followed this link from a facebook friend, however, I knew I had to share what I had read. It spoke to me.
It’s easy to catch myself acting as if creativity is this fragile, elusive thing, when in reality, it is inherent and surrounds us every day – we just have to learn to recognize it, nurture it, and use it. I know that I am a better person when I am creative – in some manner – every day, whether that be working on a painting, illustrating a book, singing, or making a really fantastic meal.
