In this week's Chicken Soup For The Soul Moment, you'll meet Candyce, a former addict who never thought she would one day be an artist. As part of her rehabilitation, she chose to get better with the help of Geezer Gallery, an organization that provides seniors with opportunities to tap into their creative potential and hone the skills they need to create quality pieces of work. Learning and putting those skills to use provides Candyce with not only the chance to make something visually beautiful, but also the chance to inspire others to feed their passions, rather than get lost in destructive behavior.
