Life is like a box of crayons

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 64color 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’s quote makes me SMILE. Life is full of so many colors of chaos, journeys, adventures, and treasured memories. So, roll up your sleeves, come out of your comfort zone and try a new shade of your favorite color such as adding a little something new or different to your daily routine. I hope it will allow you to feel like smiling too.
