I believe most of us have the need to create, whether it be to build something, draw something, write something or grow something. I have been struggling this month because, even when I write a poem, I am not satisfied with what I have created.

So, today, I tried something different. I had some mincemeat left over from Christmas so I made some little mince pies. They are in the oven so I don’t know how they’ll come out -but I feel better already.

Lesson – you don’t always have to create in the most familiar way. Writers can paint and artists can garden. Try something new – it might be an energising experience!
