Creative Lessons

Ten Things I Have Learned from Creative Women
by Keri Smith

  1. Laugh A LOT! Laugh from the gut. Bellow. Purge. Affirm. Guffaw. NEVER take life or yourself too seriously.
  2. Make your own fun regularly. You have the power to give your life meaning. Plan a creative party. Sew something new. Try a new recipe. Create your own games.
  3. Sing! Don’t worry about your voice.
  4. Spend some time just with women. Affirm the sacred bond between them.
  5. Value memories over things. Love and friendship are more important than all the money in the world.
  6. Savor sunsets.
  7. Nap daily.
  8. Celebrate birthdays!
  9. Create your own ritual. Rituals keep us connected to our lives, the earth, and one another.
  10. Honor children.
