Daily eco therapy was a line from a video I just heard by Ralph Smart, but it’s something I have been practicing quite a bit lately. Every day I make sure I get outside to the park and try to aim for at least 20 minutes a day. There are a few things I like […]
The person who is doubting yourself is you. If you’re going to doubt yourself, don’t do it. Stop doubting yourself. Start doing. Everyone else believes in you. If you believe in yourself. Stop doubting.
The Creative outlet The creative push and pull. I’m not happy unless I am engaged in a form of creative expression.
