We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names, they are of many different colors, some are more popular than others — but they all have to learn to live in the same box.”

~Robert Fulghum

Thank you to JAMmer KH for sharing today’s quote.  I challenge you to use it as a reminder to focus on your own development rather than attempting to change others.  The most common and unnecessary cause of conflict is our desire to convince others to believe what we believe, to behave the way we want them to behave, to agree with our politics, our religion, even to root for our team.  STOP!  Appreciate the differences of those around you and work on yourself.  You know as well as I do that there is enough work to do on ourselves to keep us fully occupied for a lifetime.
