{on happiness, creativity, life, and art therapy}

“Happiness is being absorbed in something–a dream, a mission, a project, an idea–greater than yourself.”

“Working through means that by repeated handling of your inner life–memories, feelings, issues, concerns–you wring out toxicities and craft a more hopeful and truthful narrative for yourself.”

“Writing helps you know what is going on inside you. When you write, you catch delicate, fleeting thoughts that you might otherwise dismiss.”

“And what is ordinary, anyway? I am sure you have encountered some astounding, selfless, generous, brilliant, astute, extraordinary people whom the world has never heard of–people who have a profound impact on the way you think, how you live your life, or what you believe in. . .”

“If you want to be at the top in whatever way, go for it, enjoy it, be proud, but do not lose your grounding.”

“. . .while the unexamined life is not worth living, the overly examined life is not worth living, either.”

~Carrie Barron, MD and Alton Barron, MD, “The Creativity Cure”
