#QOTD #33 – let’s be like crayons

You know, in life you’re going to be broken down. You are going to be hurt, you at some point are going to give more than you receive. You’re going to go through things that will make you question everything; faith, your purpose, people and even your own existence.

We always hear people say that it’s always for the better and that we break so that we can rebuild ourselves to something stronger, a better version of ourself they say. It may seem as though it’s a cliche’ but it’s the truth. Atleast I think it is.

I Came across a picture and it reminded me of a quote. One that I’m actually quite fond of because it suggests that you don’t have to wait to be “rebuilt” after being broken to still impact the world or those around us. It suggests that we don’t have to be in perfect condition to carry out our purposes. 

It goes:

Broken crayons still colour.

~ unknown 


Just like that crayon, when we’re “broken” and when things seem jaded, you have the ability to create something beautiful. You still have something to give, that colour is you(: God has an amazing way of making things work out and just because we go through certain things, doesn’t mean that our essence should change.

In most cases, it’s for us to realize just how intense our colours are, how unique and special we are. It’s Gods way of forcing us to focus on what’s important. 

So even though that crayon is broken, it may not be new, fancy or even appealing to the eye…it still has the ability to carry it out it’s function; to make things beautiful with colour. It’s sole purpose is not affected by it’s break. There’s beauty in every struggle indeed.

So always remember, no matter what life throws at you, peservere and colour on. The world needs you (: The world needs more colour.

Happy humpday everybody. 

Love and light always. From just an ordinary girl 🌈

Today’s quote is one that makes so much of logical sense, definitely one to widen our perspectives.

Albert Einstein once said:

Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish 🐟 by its ability to climb a tree 🌲 , it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid”

Now how absurd would that be: judging a fish by its ability to climb a tree right?
Similarly, we cannot judge people based on what we FEEL or THINK is right.

I can relate to this so much. We could never understand why my baby brother just didn’t do well in school, academically. He would pass subjects like Maths but fail English and Afrikaans. Yet today, he stands as a junior chef that is quickly gaining popularity because of his skill and work ethic in the kitchen.

Who would have thought? We thought he was doomed because he couldn’t do one grade just once, he always repeated and didn’t even complete his matric!

Some people fight different struggles, they have different habitats and background stories. It really isn’t about where they are, but rather, where they are going. Then, we put them in situations that they’re just not cut out for, Whether it’s academically, socially or even professionally. It doesn’t make them any less of a person, it simply means that God created a different path for them, he gave them a different gift to bless the world with, an essential gift just for them.

Let’s remember this whenever we feel we’re about to judge a person’s ability to do something that maybe is just not set out for them.

I’m sitting in the car park, waiting for our work shuttle to take us to our offices. And I was just feeling peeved but then I thought, what is being peeved going to do to help my situation?

If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.

~ said the beautiful Maya Angelou! 


And I have to agree with her!

if we are not willing to change certain things or if we can’t for any reason, then we need to change or attitudes towards it. No use fussing over something that’s not going to change yeah? 

Happy Wednesday everybody!
