“[C]reative action is essential to mental health and happiness. Without some form of creative action, it is hard to feel content. If inherent talents and passions lie fallow, self esteem, wellness,and joy slip away. Many people suffer from this. A lack of self-ex-pression make you feel incomplete. When you are able to create, follow your instincts, and turn dreaming into doing, euphoric moments follow.”
~The Creativity Cure, Carrie Barron, MD and Alton Barron, MD
“We are born perfect, we grow up perfect, and we will die perfectly, because only perfection exists. But the big lie is that you are not perfect, that nobody is perfect. So you start to search for an image of perfection that you can never become. You will never reach perfection in that way because that image is false. It’s a lie, but you invest your faith in that lie, and then you build a whole structure of lies to support it.” ~Don Miguel Ruiz
