How many times in your life has the sky been a color besides blue? And, how does this relate to your perspective? Check out this story.

It was a beautiful fall day. The gentle breeze cooled the skin from a sunny day. The tree leaves were turning into a deep rich red that popped among the evergreen trees. Two good friends, an engineer and an artist, decided to take their dogs for a walk and get away from their significant others for an hour.

The engineer started complaining that his wife does all these things that irritate him. It drives him up the wall and makes him become angry.

The artist said to the engineer. What color is the sky? The engineer said, “The sky is blue.” And he rambled off facts, figures, and recent statistics on what makes the sky blue.

The artist said, “Hmmm. Let’s take a seat.” As they continued talking, the sun dropped below the horizon and the sky lit up. The clouds turned pink. The sky changed to shades of orange.

The artist asked, “What color is the sky now?” The engineer said, “Pink, orange, red.” The artist, smiling with joy said, “So, the sky isn’t always blue then.” The engineer smiled, laughed, and acknowledged his friend.

Where in your life are you holding on to a certain perspective? It may be something you’ve believed for days, month, years or even decades.  How can you look at that “fact” differently?

Nothing remains the same. We all grow and change every day. What aspects of your life need a shift?


Wishing you an abundant, joyful, and prosperous day!
