Hello, everybody.

This is Patti with Power Word Postcards and Orange You Glad It’s Thursday video series. Today, I want to talk to you about using the whole box of crayons. The whole box of crayons. Sometimes, I’m even guilty of this, I do look at things as white or black, black or white, and then not even looking at the gray areas in between. So sometimes I do have to admit that I am kind of stuck in the black or white mode. When that happens, I need to stop and breathe and just visualize the whole box of crayons. Now, this is my ratty box of crayons that I use almost daily. The lid is all broken off and some of the crayons are broken, but this is the whole box of crayons. It’s kind of opening differently, but all of the colors are in there and it’s a brand new box of crayons.

My message for you today is to use the whole box of crayons.

There is a wide variety out there for you. It doesn’t have to be this way, or this way, or maybe something in the middle. You have a whole rainbow of colors, a whole range of motion that is right at your fingertips and ready for you to use and to move forward. Use them as tools. Use them as strategies. Use them as dreams and goals. You have the whole box of crayons.

I would love it if you’d take your Power Word Postcard journal and turn to the next blank page and get your fresh new box of crayons and start coloring. What can you color? Channel your inner kindy-gardener, and just start coloring your favorite thing to color. Is it a house? Is it flowers? Is it trees? Is it a rainbow? Is it a unicorn? Is it a dog, a bear, or a tree? Just get your box of crayons, use as many colors as you can, and fill up your little page on your journal with something to remind you that the whole box of crayons is available to you. I’ll see you next week for another episode of Orange You Glad.
