Okay so I know this may sound weird but I am really thankful for my past loves.

So, I have found the need to write myself out of this depressed state that I am in.
Of course you wonder… “Why so depressed? Don’t you realize how blessed you are compared to others?”

Step outside of your comfort zone and do something different.
If you are a writer, write from a perspective or on a topic you have never explored before.
If you are a visual artist, try a different medium or subject matter.
If you are a musician, play something new to you or something you don’t play often.
Your comfort zone is nice… but very little creativity grows there.
