Take your mind off the problems for a moment, and consider all the positive possibilities.
Consider how very much you are able to do. -Ralph Marston
Twenty-four hours ago, these chairs were bright orange.
And I decided that I no longer wanted bright orange lawn chairs.
I know. They aren't grey now, are they.
That's because twelve hours ago, I decided the grey was not happening for me.
So I chose a different color and painted them again. And now I'm happy.
All it takes is a few cans of spray paint and a drop cloth in the back yard.
And if the first color doesn't quite suit my fancy, then by all means I can just head back to Home Depot and pick out a new one.
This is life.
Full of choices.
All within my reach.
If I'm willing to dream and put in a little bit of work.
Granted. I can't change everything in this world. But with imagination and determination, there is almost always something I can do to make life just a little bit better.
Even if it does take two coats of paint.
