Creativity

Creativity sparks the mind, nourishes the soul, and can help you weave your whole self back together again. Whenever I feel lost, overwhelmed, disoriented, or confused, I try to do something creative because I know it will bring me back to myself and help me remember what is important faster than anything else.

How

Whenever I begin a new journey or project I ask myself a series of questions to help me focus my mind and stay on course. Here are some of the questions I ask: What is my ultimate goal? Why is this important? Who will it impact? Where is it needed the most? When does it…

Outside

I like going outside the lines, because for me creativity, innovation, and magic happen outside the lines.
