Creativity and Recovery


20150427_183247As I was painting today, I stopped here and there to write down a connection I made about the abuse and a writing idea.  My creative brain was active.  This is the first time in weeks I’ve felt truly creative.

My therapist told me when we paint or create something it  activates a separate part of the brain. It seemed like painting calmed me and opened up and allowed me to drop a bit more of the weight I’ve carried for a lifetime.
