“Another secret to living a happy, fulfilled life is living a life infused with creativity. Creativity isn’t going to be the magic cure all for diseases or life expectancy, but it will help you live a better quality of life, no matter how long or short. Creativity gives us an ongoing opportunity to have something to look forward to which in turn helps us find more purpose in life. Motivation can lead to a greater desire to live our lives to the highest quality we’re capable of. Creativity offers rich quality-of-life rewards to those who are courageous enough to follow its calling. Besides, no one reaches the end of their life and thinks, “I wish I’d spent less time being creative and less time expressing myself through things that bring me joy.” – Samantha Welker
