Every Friday we unite for five minutes to write on one word. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second-thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on paint.
We're always painting pictures in our mind, aren't we?
We paint a picture of what we should look like by now?
What if you woke up at 35 and the painted picture on your wall doesn't look like the pictures you had dreamed of?
Of course there are times I want to wash my walls clean and start over with a new design.
And it's because sometimes the colors are so bright and loud, that it makes me want to crawl under a rock.
But, there was also a time that my world was filled with gray so I embrace the change, I embrace how vibrant my world now is.
So instead, I have to change that picture.
I have to change what I had painted many many years ago.
And I embrace the new colors, the new world, this world I chose, this world I asked for, this world I created.
I embrace how messy you make the picture.
I embrace the colors you love.
I embrace our new picture and now, we get to paint it together.
