Different Crayons Makes Life More Colorful

Different Crayons Makes Life More Colorful

hang in there with me on this one please…

you see, i’ve  always wondered  why people try to fit you into their mold (actually, i don’t even like the word “mold”, it’s a yucky word)…who says you’re supposed to be more like everyone else, or more like your mother, sister, brother, the kid down the street, etc…you get what i mean, right?
what is it about people? it’s the most frustrating thing i’ve struggled with my whole life!
but, this year i’ve given it much thought and i’ve decided that i’m going to be more like a box of crayons…you know, the really really really BIG box, with all the different colors?

yeah, that’s me…because, then i can be any color i want, given any situation…it’s not that i’m a social chameleon, by any means.  it’s just that i have such a diverse personality, and i finally realized i was born this way! so what’s a person to do wit that? well,  i’ve decided to come up with a new personality type…i’m callin’ it ” the crayon personality“…all it means is,now you don’t fit into one type, not an A type or B type…because there are those of us that would be considered a “BBC” type (BIG Box of Crayons)! you see? it didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that one!!!

so, now that i have it figured out (for myself, that is), i’d say  it’s got to be a really BIG box! so that means,  there’s plenty of room for anyone who’s brave enough to jump in!! think about it for a minute, if God made us all different, then we should alllllll be who we were created to be! can you imagine what a beautiful tapestry we could make if we all hung out in the same box, not worrying about who’s what color? WOW, that’s the way i like it, we could  be anything (or any color) without hearing the noise from those who are contrary…hmmmm, it’s sounding better by the minute!

so what do you say? want to make our own creation, want to be freeeeeee?  think about it for a minute… we can all be whatever we want and we can help become an example of that beautiful tapestry …wow, we’d make God pretty proud don’tcha think?

peace out…

JUST BE YOURSELF!!

ALWAYS B A FIRST RATE VERSION OF URSELF INSTEAD OF 2nd RATE VERSION OF SOME 1 ELSEmany times we look at others wishing we were more like them…it doesn’t matter who you might secretly desire to be, what matters most is asking yourself, “why do you want to be them“?

ask yourself that question and see what you come up with…you may find that all the things you think that other person has is not all it’s cracked up to be! 

you know the old saying, the grass always looks greener on the other side? well, that holds true for everything…think for a  moment, do you really know what they’re like, OR what they’ve been through!

so HERE’S  the bottom line, don’t envy another’s characteristics, outward appearance, career, etc., you get the picture?

stop looking so hard at someone else, and look inside you!! did you ever ask your Creator to show you who you are? hmmmm, there’s something to ponder!  well, why don’t you do that! you may be surprised at what you see looking through His eyes! 

remember, God never makes mistakes, AND He never makes things He doesn’t love…so the truth is, you were made perfect, not a thing missing or lacking…learn to love who you are, because He made you unique, there’s no one else like  you, or can do what you were created to do…sooooooooo, how about it? can you learn to love YOU the way HE LOVES YOU

go ahead, try it, you may be delighted in yourself just as He delights in you!! can you dare to see yourself beautiful, complete and perfect? sure you can…just ask Him, and remember, He’s in the business of creating masterpieces…so don’t try to be someone else when you’re a treasure made by your Master! 

peace out!

YOU’RE UNIQUE, CAN YOU LIVE WITH THAT?

i've often wondered about the uniqueness of some people...i've wondered about people's opinions being so critical and even unjust in their evaluation of what being unique is and sometimes labeling it "weird".  i'm here to say, don't you think it's time we begin to value the uniqueness of others and even ourselves? i've come to a place in my life where i've decided i'm going to celebrate my "uniqueness" and be comfy in my own skin, in spite of what others may label me!  to some i'm quirky, to others eccentric, and to a few, plain old weird...but it's time for me to stand with who i am and declare, i am created by one who has a unique way of thinking and creating things, unlike any human i've ever known... if He indeed has created me with these little oddities, who am i to argue?  yes, i am different in many ways (others may suggest), but again "i am who i am" and "it is what it is"... though i may be scoffed at by some, others have embraced my unique way of thinking and creating, and i'm good with that...in the meantime while others teeter on what they think of me, i have decided i am celebrating me and enjoying the ride!  does anyone want to join me? i welcome and double dog dare you to be who you were created to be!! any takers?

i’ve often wondered about the uniqueness of some people…i’ve  also wondered about people’s opinions being so critical and even unjust in their evaluation of what being unique is and sometimes labeling it as “weird”.
so, i’m here to ask if you  think it’s time we begin to value the uniqueness of others and even ourselves?
i’ve come to a place in my life where i’ve decided i’m going to celebrate my “uniqueness” and be comfy in my own skin, in spite of what others may label me!
to some i’m quirky, to others eccentric, and to a few, plain old weird, some have suggested i’m the whole box of crayons! but i’ve realized, it’s time for me to stand for who i am and declare, i am created by the One who has a unique way of thinking and creating things, unlike any human i’ve ever known…
if He indeed has created me with these little oddities, who am i to argue?
yes, i’m different in many ways ( as others may suggest), but again “i am who i am” and “it is what it is”…
though some may scoff, others have embraced my unique way of thinking and creating, and i do delight in that…in the meantime while others teeter on what they think of me, i have decided to celebrate me and my freedom and make it a wild, enjoyable ride!
does anyone want to join me?
i welcome you and double dog dare you to give it a try and believe in who you were created to be!! do i have any takers?

Change the Way You Look at Things

Changing the Way We Look at Things

my eyes have been bothering me quite a bit lately, with the seasonal changes, it make my eyes red and my vision blurry, so needless to say, it’s a bit uncomfortable…but given my over indulging imagination, it made me start to think about what eyes can do… we’ve all been given eyes to see with, some are brown, blue, green or hazel…(some have one of each)…but here’s the point, does it really matter what color others see or is it more important that we use our eyes to see what cannot be seen? maybe it’s time we start looking at things through our spiritual eyes…maybe we should close our eyes to see…imagination is an amazing thing, it can help us to see from a grander view…maybe we should begin looking at each other with more love and grace rather than critiquing one another…maybe, just maybe, we need to look at others the way we would want them to look at us…ouch! it’s the same with these blogs we write. isn’t it time to see with greater insight, so we can write what needs to be heard? isn’t it time to see through eyes that can see the heart of things…i think it’s time to change our view of range and start looking through eyes that see deeper than surface…check your vision, maybe you’re able to see more than meets the eye!
