1.     “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”

 – Maya Angelou 

 

Being creative is the way of life, you need not take a paintbrush to paint or play with poetry words what you need is to creatively complete your work and creatively enjoy a life that everything seems joyful and even mundane chores become interesting.

 

 

2.    We want deeper sincerity of motive, a greater courage in speech and earnestness in action. -Sarojini Naidu 

 

Be it new year resolutions or any other challenge you take up in life, do it with realistic goals and approaches. Many post a message about the goals on social media and when the haze fades out we see that the sincerity towards reaching the goals was not strong. Don't take challenges or resolutions in a herd, decide what is best for yourself and then work towards it relentlessly.
