I create because I have to. Creating keeps me sane. Every minute spent creating is a step to something beautiful in the face of adversity. I can lose myself in making positive things happen rather than dwelling on the negative. By creating I achieve something better which can be enjoyed by more than just me.
By creating I am bringing something into the world to nurture and build and grow. I can focus on the now and stay in the present. I can wash away the world outside and concentrate only on releasing the good things from within. I can meditate on the finer details and know that every little bit counts towards a better, bigger picture.
I create because it empowers me to achieve. It increases my happiness as well as the happiness of those around me. I create because it is in my nature to create. It is in my soul and I do not know, or want to know, anything else.
