James Allen once said: "A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life."
Our souls need to be fed and we all need an outlet for our creativity. At some point life's changes will take us down the road with turns that we are not prepared to handle. We will have to rely on our internal compass to help guide us through. Things may be bumpy for a while and then at the end the path will smooth out and flatten out. My creative side is what helps to get me through the bumpy ride. Whether it is working in my garden or creating a beautiful scrapbook page, I know when I see the colors on the page and the creative way the pictures fill the page my heart is lifted and I know the world will right itself again.
