Our Box of Crayons


“Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world. Constantly color your picture gray, and your picture will always be bleak. Try adding some bright colors to the picture by including humor and your picture begins to lighten up”. – Allen Klein

Today is a new day, choose how you want to spend it, you can bring all the garbage from yesterday into today or you can see today as a completely new day. Over the last few days I have been looking forward more and spending less time looking back. I feel better when I focus my efforts on moving in a positive direction rather than trying to figure out all the things of the past. 

Each of us is an artist, but many are repressed artists.
There is something of ourselves that cannot be expressed in words.
Perhaps that something can be expressed in form or color, dance or music.
If only with crayons or a tin drum,
let that something that cannot be said move your hands or your body today.

If I were to sing, play an instrument or attempt in any way to release my expression of life through music I’m pretty sure my Real Life page would be taken down; it is just not my gift. At the same time I know I’m far from the perfect writer but words just feel better to my soul and I believe area a better reflection to the world of who I am.

Find your crayons and paint your picture of life with the gifts you have been given.
