Why Can’t We All Be Colorful Like Fruity Pebbles?

Good morning and happy Monday folks!

Here we are entering the second week of October already!

Like, how is that even possible?

Thanksgiving and Christmas are literally tomorrow.

Are you ready?

Because I’m not.

These days, I feel like I can’t open my phone, laptop, or any other device to read the news or keep up to date with what is happening in the world without becoming overly anxious, sad, or disheartened by what is happening.

I can’t imagine I’m the only one who feels this way.

Anyhoo, let’s get down to business.

Shall we?

Cuddle up in your blanket and grab your favorite warm beverage because here we go!

This past Saturday, I got to experience Kinky Boots at the Fulton Theater in Lancaster with my bestie, Devin.

This was the second time we had seen the show because back in 2017 when I turned 30, we saw the show on Broadway.

I can honestly that I think I enjoyed both productions equally (maybe the Broadway one a tad bit more); however, the costumes, dancing, sets, and colors were fabulous.

But above all of those things, the most important quality to me was the message that continues to resonate with me as an openly gay man in the 2022 world around us.

At the end of the show, the cast comes together to sing a song called Just Be” (link below) and they talk about 6 steps that every individual in this world should attempt to become a more loving place for ALL.

Pursue the truth.

Learn something new.

Accept yourself and you’ll accept others too.

Let love shine.

Let pride be your guide.

You can change the world when you change your mind.

How true all of these words above are.

I hope and pray that each and every one of you will strive to live these out in your life today, tomorrow, and all days after.

Our world needs more love, color, and it is up to you and me to be more colorful.

Fruity pebbles aren’t the only thing in this world that can be colorful.

I challenge you to be colorful and to lead each day with love.

Sprinkle sunshine always,
