Do you happen to love doing something so much that while you are doing it, you have a heightened sense of alertness, lose track of time, feeling the creativity while blocking everything else out and just loving life?  A creativity that occupies your mind so fully that there is no room for any other thoughts?

A lot has been a lot said recently about quieting our right side of the brain to let creativity flow.  To let our minds rest to heal and recover.  I savor these times.  I often get lost and time races at warp speed.  In those moments I flourish.  I’m creating a bit of joy for myself.  A deposit, if you will, into my happiness and well being.  A happy Mama = happy Family.  Everyone wins.

Debra Lee Baldwin discussed this a bit in a post with a link to Rebecca Sweet’s website on the healing benefits of coloring.  It’s a nice story on humans being good to each other.   There are also instructions on how to enter the contest to win Debra Lee Baldwin’s new coloring book!  The info is here:  http://harmonyinthegarden.com/garden-therapy-in-the-midst-of-trauma-a-story-and-a-giveaway/ 

Update:  There was a winner and she was happy.  Tip: Subscribe to my blog and you just might win something succulent related.
