Jonathan Chiu Stress on the Inside and Out
Racism is draining.
Life is all about how you respond to your situation.
Hard times, uncertain times, stressful times are typically the periods of greatest learning, of character-building, and of strengthening.
Creativity is all about taking what’s inside my head and getting it inside of yours. The space between my starting point and your ending point is art—it’s creativity.
