When I started blogging last summer, I did it merely because A) I was extremely bored and B) because I needed a creative outlet that would allow me to be my quirky unfiltered self: the one I had locked away in an effort to pursue what society deemed as the right path (high school, college, career).¬†I nicknamed it “a catchall for all things creative” because I had no idea what this blog would turn into during that time or even if I would be able to keep blogging after the summer was over. Well it has now been 12 months and I must say starting Creativity Arise has been one of the best decisions I have made.

Through Creativity Arise I have been able to interact with people from around the globe. I never thought I would have an audience of one much less an audience of over 450 people! It still amazes me that people want to actually read what I write! Thank you so much for coming along with me on this journey! You all rock!

Blogging for Creativity Arise has also sent me on a journey to self discovery. I have had several epiphanies during the year and discovered many passions in the process. I realized that I am a right brained individual and I am at my best when I am utilizing my creative side. I also discovered my love for encouraging people to follow their dreams, my love for fashion, travel, DIY, and photography as well as my love sharing wellness advice and my faith in the process. Now if only I could put all of my passions together, I think I will have found my dream job!!!

I’m sure that I have just scratched the surface of what Creativity Arise can become. I’m certain that it will continue to grow and evolve throughout the years. I can’t wait to share this evolution with all of you!

A special thank you to all my fellow bloggers for your encouragement, support, constructive criticism, blog tips, and tricks, etc. throughout this year. I wouldn’t have been able to get through it without your help. And a special thanks to all my family and friends who read my blog and make suggestions and give me feedback whenever I ask. You all are amazing!

I would love to hear what you like about Creativity Arise! Please leave a comment down below ūüôā
