The world could do with a little more creative generosity, don’t you think?
What do I mean by creative generosity? Giving of your imagination and creative talents for no other reason than to be happy and help make other people happy.
There’s a writer who frequents our local park, gifting poems to people as writing practice for herself and her own special contribution to the community. She wrote one for my daughter the other day, and it was so on point, I teared up a bit.
I wanted to share it with all of you, as well as its message:

Wishing you all a creative, generous day.

May this song put wind in your sails and resolution in your heart. Continue reading
