Taking Time to Be Creative

So often we feel overburdened by the chores of every day life that we choose not to take time for our creative selves. There's always laundry to be done, the dog wants another walk and the grass still needs cutting. In fact, the creative person needs to schedule time to follow a pursuit -- whether it be singing, writing, making music, painting, drawing, sewing, quilting or knitting. Make creative time a priority. Think of it this way. During the last moments of your life, will you think,"I'm so happy that I've got an organized sock drawer and my home is clean?" Or will you be happy to reflect on your creative pursuits ~~ a beautifully knit sweater, a quilt to hand down to the next generation, a painting or photograph that will stand the test of time?
