Each person has a spark within that is a unique and special. Each person has a reason to shine just as they are. One of the challenges faced is learning to accept the individuality in others, as in ourselves. From a very young age, we are taught to color within the lines, follow the rules, and to shun anyone who is different.
As we get older, our roles of individualism get blurred even more by the expectations of conformity of society and relationships. To get along, it is, as we've been told, important to fit in.
What happens to the individual spark that shined so brilliantly then gets dimmed and forgotten...UNLESS you learn how to color outside the lines and allow others to color outside as they choose as well!
Have fun playing as it is most enjoyable in your authentic child-like self. If it is pleasurable to splash in puddles, then do so!
In giving permission for your inner self to come out and play, it is also just as important to allow others to play the way that is most enjoyable for them. If they choose to chase rainbows instead, allow it! If they choose to play in the mud instead, allow it!
If it frustrates you to see someone playing in a way that is different than they way you would prefer, observe it. Perhaps there is a lesson to learn in this other game. If nothing else, it is a lesson in tolerance.
Although we are all ultimately part of the whole, we all came to this world to have unique and different experiences. None of them are wrong! They are all merely different, as it is intended.
Cherish the diversity and marvel at each person for the remarkable treasure they have to share.
