As a right-brainer, I think it’s good to be creative away from work. I love my work. But sometimes I miss opportunities to think creatively—not because I have to—but simply because it does my heart good.
For Christmas last year, my sweet husband gave me a journal. I vowed to write something short and simple each day, to give myself another creative outlet. I’ve already failed in that regard (sigh), but smile at the things I’ve written not all that long ago. I love the journal for giving me a beautiful place to write my thoughts, and for helping me remember them.
