WELL-BEING

"The state of being happy, healthy, or prosperous."

- 1st definition, Merriam Webster Online Dictionary

This philosophy prioritizes being happy and healthy over being prosperous when referring to Well-being. It should be abundantly clear to us now that without our health, we have nothing. We are also being forced to remember what truly makes us happy; gratitude. Our Creative Power is very much affected by our well-being. 

Well-being is a creative's most important asset.
