Seeing a friend’s recent Instagram post got me thinking about the positive benefits of creativity. In her post she talked about returning to painting – something she’d not done for a long time. And she described how she felt her return to this particular creative endeavour nurturing her soul. In particular because she’s decided to paint and draw and create for the experience and the journey alone, rather than a means to make money. And that was something she’d tried to do but found it dragged her down.
