A Box Of Crayons
“Be uniquely you. Stand out. Shine. Be colourful. The world needs your prismatic soul!” ― Amy Leigh Mercree
“See with a different eye, visualize with a colourful mind, manifest your thoughts with the energy within.” ― Michael Bassey Johnson
There are days when the words of others more articulately express my thoughts on a particular topic. As we continue our “A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words” series, the words of others better highlights my thoughts on living a colourful life.
“Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8 color boxes, but what you’re really looking for are the 64 color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. I fancy myself to be a 64 color box, though I’ve got a few missing. It’s okay though, because I’ve got some more vibrant colors like periwinkle at my disposal. I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet the 8 color boxes. Does anyone else have that problem? I mean there are so many different colors of life, of feeling, of articulation. So when I meet someone who’s an 8 color type…I’m like, hey girl, Magenta! and she’s like, oh, you mean purple! and she goes off on her purple thing, and I’m like, no I want Magenta!” John Mayer
Racism and its cousin colourism are a couple of the most insidious attitudes among us as a specie. If you believe that there is a Creator, a Source of life, a God or some Force that brought all that your eyes can see into being, my question is how can you not see Its artistry and love of colour?
“If you are living a colorless life, it doesn’t matter whether the world is colorful or not!” ― Mehmet Murat ildan
