“Even if you never go near the arts, you are creating away like mad every single day, working in the medium of experience itself. Actions, objects, words, gestures—literally anything you influence by your choices becomes part of your creation. Every time you voice your thoughts to a loved one, or cook a meal, or choose a new bar of soap for the dish by your bathtub, you are creating a modification in space or time that would never have existed without you. Whether consciously or unconsciously, you have more power to create your own life than anyone or anything else.”
—Martha Beck, The Joy Diet

    1. "I'm not creative" is a story people tell themselves that isn't true! I love this quote for that reason. Glad it resonated with you, too.

    1. Yes, we can change those stories. Sometimes all it takes is a little tweak...
