Have you ever noticed how we face various temptations during our day?
To think things which are shortsighted, to say things which are not nice to each other, to do things which are selfish.
And we usually have regrets about that. About how we treated the loved ones, people we care about deeply, how we responded to a challenge under stress. We say we'll start over again in the morning.
I found that whenever I create, whenever I'm in the creative mode, everything which is not important fades away. Every chance to explode, to give in.
You sit on it, you breath, you notice it, and you go back to work. And it passes.
At least for a moment.
And when I say create, I don't mean only compose, improvise, play organ, draw, write, paint etc. Every human act which is generous is a creative act.
There are other reasons, for sure to create. But this is worth the try, too.
