“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who are alive.” ~Howard Thurman

To simply state I get bored far too easily and Creating has become my go to way for infusing my life with that Newness I want everytime.
