We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names and all are different colors but they live together in the same box. Author unknown
School is starting soon in most of the United States. Parents are stocking up on school supplies which, for elementary kids, still includes crayons. To me there is nothing like the smell, the feel, the colorful beauty of new crayons. Just seeing them on the shelves at Walmart renews my creative energy as I look forward to Fall..
To add to my love of crayons is this metaphor of inclusion….all colors, weird names, sharp and dull, all living in the same box….what a great visual message. Young children see the world through these eyes, it’s the job of a parent is to help them stay that way.
Affirmation: I love “crayons” of all kinds.
Coaching questions: If you’re feeling low on… positive energy, creativity, good will…buy yourself a box of crayons or colored pencils. No matter what your age, coloring will make you feel just a little better. What’s keeping you from trying it?
