Maxed-out bag

Because I started it a few weeks ago in one of my therapy groups, and have been meaning to finish it.

Because sometimes just saying, “I’m maxed out” isn’t enough.

Because I just finished a whole series of blog entries about how to fit creativity into our busy lives, after all. (Thank you, Emma, for the reminder.)

Because I’m an art therapist, and I believe in the power of art to express and explore our thoughts and feelings.

  1. Well, it says it all doesn’t it! A great visual to something we all can relate too! And a great reminder to be ok with letting it all pop out sometimes!

    good luck on the licensing and the trip to your folks!

  2. Make it because if it wasn’t meant to be made it wouldn’t be a blink of thought and effort.
