You never know where a Facebook status update will lead! Last week, I posted “Warning! Today I am coloring OUTSIDE the lines ;)The likes and the posts started flowing which tells me I struck a nerve, in a positive manner! The screen shot below is only a portion of what people had to say on the post, and a week later, I am still getting likes and comments.After laughing about it for a while, I got excited about what this said to me about life! We do not like to be told we must color inside the lines!! Remember as children, when we were taught how to color, we were told to color inside the lines; to heck with that! Why not do what we feel like we should or could do? Why not make our own lines and color where WE want to color? No one wants to be told how to act, whether in coloring, or in life!We were all created as unique human beings with no two people alike! No fingerprints are the same, no DNA is the same, we are all different! So why “Color Inside the Lines” like everyone else?I say be yourself! Be different, be unique….take your crayons and Color OUTSIDE the Lines!!
Have you ever wondered exactly WHY we love Friday so much? Is it because we have a two day break from work? If so, should we reexamine what we do for a living? We really should love what we do, even with the challenges that work provides us, shouldn’t we be thankful for the work? Is it because we have two days to spend our time as we wish without deadlines, bosses, interruptions and the like? Is it because we are provided more time with family and friends over the weekend? Or is it as simple as we do not have to hear the alarm clock go off for a couple of days?Whatever the reason, we rejoice in Friday….TGIF is here! I suppose now is not the time to mention that at the end of Friday, we are 48 hours away from Monday…..hmmmm. Have a great weekend!! John Lusher
