“Life’s too short to just use one color of green.” — Dee Greuning

When you think of “green” does one particular color come to mind? There are many different shades and gradations of green.  Why limit ourselves to just one?

This applies to more than just color. We leave most of the world unexplored because we become comfortable with the familiar. Life is too short to get stuck in comfortable ruts. Have fun and shake things up. Use a different color of green, try a new vegetable,  create a new recipe, read a new book, think a new thought, go in a different direction, embrace life in all it’s fullness and lighten up.
