We spend so much time every day doing things we need to do. Regardless of our age, we have our list of chores, ranging from homework and bill paying, to cleaning our homes and taking out the trash. These are all important things and deserve a certain amount of time and energy.
But what about the fun stuff? You know, those creative outlets that allow us to exercise those oh-so important areas of the brain where imagination pushes us to extend beyond the monotony. Just like anything else in life, our flight of fancy needs to be fed in order to stay healthy and well-rounded.
So, here are some thoughts. Take some time out of every day to do something creative. Sketch a drawing, play some music, or try your hand at water-colors. What you might find is some of that out-of-the-box thinking that you allow yourself to play with when you have your creative hat on may transfer over to the more practical areas of your life. And maybe, just maybe, a little creativity in your pragmatic life would be a welcome addition.
Hope to see you there!
