Express Yourself Creatively
Commentary by Peter Shepherd

It can turn people into sheeple who spend their lives meekly following somebody else's idea of what they should be doing. With the creative power of your imagination, you can reach for your greatest potential and fill your life with an amazing sense of achievement.
When we set an intention to change and grow and invent a new future, we begin a journey in which we move from coping, to learning, and finally to the mastery of living.
