Two Coats Of Paint

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.

My point is this. When it comes to changing up the color of lawn furniture, the sky's the limit.

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. 


  1. ...imagination, determination, and a bit of color. Perfect. It's the details that make all the difference! Love the new color. -h

  2. PS: love the quote :)

    1. I love when I find a quote that captures exactly what I'm trying to say.

  3. You are an inspiration to me, Diane.
