We live in a culture of excessive consumption. Just think about all of the things that go into your mind and body on a daily basis – the food you eat, the news you watch, the Facebook you check, the coffee, the cokes, the books, the emails, the medicines, blogs, your work (just to name a few). It’s easy to sit and list the things that we consume. Why? because consuming is easy.
Creating, on the other hand, takes much more effort and much more work. But like anything in life, the thing that requires more, rewards more. When was the last time you created something? It could be anything. A new recipe, a poem, a hand written letter, a drawing, a painting, a story, a garden, snapping pictures, decorating your house…? Do something creative today. Start small, like leaving a comment on this blog post, and notice the feeling that you get when you’ve created thats uniquely yours. It feels nice.
