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 64-color box, though I’ve got a few missing.” — John Mayer

I know the feeling. I’ve got a few missing myself, but I don’t worry. And you shouldn’t either. Use that old lipstick from your purse. Smear some summer clovers to make a pretty green stain. There’s chalk in the garage, too, and probably a few old felt-tip pens here somewhere.

You are a creative woman, made to express yourself with all the colorgifts of the world around you. Use the sky! Use the sea. It’s okay if you don’t feel shiny and perfect and sharp any more. If you were that perfect, you’d never have drawn a single lovely mark on the world.
