The ability to be creative is endless.

Take time today, and every day, to try something you didn’t think you could do or learn something new. Write a story, paint a picture, organize a small space, play make-believe with your kids, and dream! The options are endless.

Most importantly, celebrate your creativity and add the word creative to the definition of you!
