Creative Expression Is My Livelihood
Do not for the sake of doing, but for the sake of feeling. That’s my mantra.
In the realm of inspiration and art and beauty, there are few words more overused than “creativity.” And yet here I am—a supposed writer for hire—telling you that I feel alive through creative expression. It’s what I dedicate my life to. For me, it can be a number of different things…listening to music, songwriting, painting, writing, imagining, experiencing.
There is no greater feeling than the feeling of euphoria. And that’s the gift that the arts and culture and my surroundings give me. Whether it’s taking a risk, exploring the unknown, freeing the creative urges within, or listening to my favorite playlist (of the week), I embrace the feeling when it’s present. It’s how I feel alive.
