Creating beauty restores your soul

I was recently asked to participate in a creative ebook collaboration project, and it got me thinking a lot about my own personal creativity. Yes, I paint, but reality is that happens once in a great while. I also love home design projects, but clearly I’m not redecorating my home on a frequent basis! I love and believe in this quote, that when you’re creating beauty around you, you’re restoring your own soul, but am I doing that? Am I creating beauty? Am I restoring my soul in that way?

Yup! I sure am. After a quick email exchange with the creator of the upcoming ebook, I was able to see my creativity in a new light.

Just because I don’t do those things every day, doesn’t mean I’m not creating beauty in other ways. These days, a lot of the beauty I’m creating is right here, in words. I’m not a poet or fiction writer, but blogging is absolutely something that restores my soul, and Jenny and I are absolutely creating some beauty.

I also love to cook. Having this time off for the past week and a half, has given me a chance to do that in new and creative ways. Hopefully my husband would agree that some beauty was created!

The moral of the story is that we all do creative things that restore our souls. They may not be the same every day, but they exist. Sometimes it just takes a different perspective to make you see them.

Thank you for being on this journey with me.
