I think being creative, letting your creativity shine, is really about balance. When we ignore our creative side - and we all have one - at the expense of work, or busyness, or fatigue, our soul begins to suffer. Creativity can be as simple as play, or even giving our imagination reign in a wonderful book. Let your creativity shine today.
And when I think of beauty, I pay attention to detail. Finding beauty in the small details of life. Beauty, I believe, is very much related to gratitude. So what you are thankful for becomes beautiful. (Which reminds me to continue my 1000 gifts of gratitude!)
