I went to a luncheon at the West Michigan Cancer Center recently and they had a panel of presenters on the topic of complimentary medicine. One of the presenters teaches something like art and healing at Western Michigan University and also teaches art therapy classes at the center. I can’t quote exactly what she said, nor have I tried to find the statistic….but basically it said that one session using creativity like art or writing gave a person health benefits for up to three months.
I’ve been debating weather I should keep writing on this blog. I seem to be lacking in inspiration. I’ve never done cancer before so I’m not exactly sure how I’m supposed to feel now. I feel relieved. I want life to go back to normal…..but not necessarily the way it was since there were changes to be made. I think I still have more to say…..but maybe I won’t say it as often. Maybe once a week or so. I’m going to give myself some slack that I don’t need to write every day. But still take advantage of this creative outlet.
I’ll skip the decoupage and stick to blogging.
