“Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an an enormous reward. You will have created something.”
I love love love this quote. You don't have to work in a “creative” field or be an artist to practice the arts. Just do it for your own soul. ❤️🌈😘 #makingselfcare
Side note: I first found this quote years ago via @swissmiss. Since then, she has founded a worldwide movement based entirely around the idea that “everyone is creative:” @creativemorning. These meet ups are a great place to get inspired and are always free. Check it out to see if there is one in your city!
