Daily Affirmations


Creativity is central to my experience of soul. It helps me to see evidence of soul in funny little nooks and crannies of living. It allows me to risk my own expression of self. Every act that I undertake can be made more beautiful when I allow my own creativity to shine through, to be at work in the mundane. Creativity is what can make the ordinary transform into the extraordinary. It is both a way of doing and of seeing, of behaving and of being. Whatever I do today, I will bring along my creative self. I will use day-to-day circumstances and events as a vehicle through which I allow my creative energies to flow.
I will experiment with life as an artist experiments with color. I will paint my own day. Events are my palette. My soul is my brush.
I will let the artist within me express itself.
Creative minds have always been known to survive any kind of bad training.
Anna Freud
