This enlightening piece suggests that everyone has the potential to harness creativity for a more fulfilling life. Read along with the original article(s) here: https://www.livehappy.com/self/happiness-is-all-in-your-mind/ Quotes to ponder: "Once those creative juices start flowing, and you’re no longer focusing on your own life or problems, you get into that flow state where you’re working and the positive feelings are being reinforced. It’s a great way to enhance your mood." "We have been brought up to believe that artists are broke and tortured and crazy. When I say, ‘Let’s become an artist, let’s play, let’s get in touch with our inner resources,’ people are frightened. They believe they can’t be happy if they become an artist, but the opposite is true." "Artistic, creative people are solvent, they’re happy; just start working on your creativity and watch what it does for you."
