“I am stronger because I had to be, I am smarter because of my mistakes, happier because of the sadness I’ve known, and I am wiser because I have learned.” –Unknown

Personal growth does not magically happen. Growth takes place because we are challenged and instead of running away, we step up and accept the challenge whole-heartedly. Some challenges are fairly easy, while others are more difficult. It doesn’t matter if the challenge is large or small, the question you need to ask yourself is, “What do I choose?”

I have found that in those profound decision-making moments I need to go inside, get very still and look for what my heart wants to do and how to accomplish that outcome. Once I know what I want to do, and how I need to approach the situation, I have a map and a path to follow. This approach helps me stay true to myself and maneuver through even extremely difficult situations.

I often use one of the ICWIB art activities to go inward and still my mind. With this in mind, I invite you to explore some of the ICWIB art activities and videos for FREE.
