My personal graphics portfolio & musings of love, life and the pursuit of creativity!! I’m Belinda aka “Bella” a freelance writer, editor,creativity coach, online radio show producer,artist and amateur photographer from Toronto, Canada. This is my personal blog which will primarily focus on things I am personally passionate about. My main focus in life is trying to make sure each of my days is touched by the creative process. I am enthralled by creativity and its effect on the psyche. I have been blessed to cross paths with many interesting, inspiring, creative people and hopefully I will get to introduce you to a few along the way. Another main passion of mine is helping children and adults with special needs, chronic illness, and learning challenges to find interesting and informative resources.
“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall”
“Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people. It will keep you cramped and insane your whole life, and it is the main obstacle between you and a shitty first draft. I think perfectionism is based on the obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won’t have to die. The truth is that you will die anyway and that a lot of people who aren’t even looking at their feet are going to do a whole lot better than you, and have a lot more fun while they’re doing it.” ~ Anne Lamott
“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.” ~ Thornton Wilder
“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.”
“Our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world as being able to remake ourselves.”~Mahatma Gandhi
