What I've learned this year is that thoughts are powerful - far more so than I had previously imagined. The way I talk to myself from the second I wake up in the morning affects every other aspect of my day from that point on. Thoughts demand to be acknowledged. The trouble is, many of mine are the sort that should never, under any circumstances, be uttered aloud. Therefore, creating is the answer. Creating is the only answer, forever and ever, amen.
