For you are the artist, and you have a palette, an eternal palette of colors that has no limit. And you may choose to paint the picture of your life in whatsoever way pleases you and brings you joy.

You also have the free will to choose colors that do not please you, which do not bring you joy. And often in life we choose those colors which do not bring joy. But even this has a purpose in the painting of our lives. For it serves as the contrast. It makes those colors which bring us joy seem all the brighter, all the more beautiful.

And truly, one would tire of doing a painting composed of only one kind of color. For life is made up of limitless colors. And each color that is applied brings a new perspective, brings new life to that painting.
