For the first time here on my blog, I’m going to dedicate an entire month to one single topic:
Sounds limiting, but it’s actually the completely opposite. I am excited to find all of the different ways that creativity relates to our lives and all of the different ways we can improve and leverage our creativity to create our onlyness.
Here we go! First post of the month on creativity starts…now.
