7 Things My 12-day-old Taught Me About Creativity

1. EnjoyIMG_2612

Relish each moment.

2. Listen

There’s beauty in each little sound.

3. Dream

Don’t despise the day of small beginnings.

4. Experiment

If something doesn’t work, try something else.

5. Simplify

Needs met = happiness all around.

6. Rest

Being is more important than doing. (Tweet it)

7. Laugh

Joy is always found…if we look for it.

She’s pure joy!

    I have been looking forward to this post for the last seven months! Love your perspective on creativity in general, but love this merge!

    • Well Skottydog, it’s good to know you don’t just pick on me…haah

  • Andy Black

    A hearty congrats on the ultimate creation! Parenting is one of the most rewarding things I have ever experienced. How exhilarating (and terrifying) is to have a chance to put your stamp on another human life. I hear the first 5 years are the most impressionable so don’t screw up (no pressure)! Just kidding. You have all the right attitude, outlook and goals so I am sure the three of you will do fine. Does she have a name yet?

    • Love it Andy!

      Her name is Kate! (Kathryn Diane)

  • Scrollwork

    Look at that smile! She’s a heart-melter. So happy for the little family.

    • I don’t know how she does it but man, she emanates a force field of joy that just sucks us all in! Thanks đŸ˜‰

  • Nice message. Simple, but packs a wallop.
