Black and white are truly decisive colors that can be interesting at times, and even at other times necessary. But there is nothing that truly brings out the beauty and truth in life than the many shades of grey. There are things that are definitely black or white, but if you were to paint everything over with just black or white, you would lose so many beautiful and amazing details that you could otherwise notice and that might help you to have a better perspective should you add a bit of grey!
Too many of us tend to make that very mistake when judging a situation, or when arriving to a decision. We apply the black or white rule and leave out the various shades of grey. If you go into any situation with a bucket of just black or white you risk missing out on a lot of beautiful details that could make the overall picture be so much more clear and relatable.
Take politics for example. There are too many people who are stuck on either red or blue when making a choice or decision. The white in the States often gets forgotten or ignored and therefore those who are so busy throwing their buckets of either blue or red on everything can totally miss the whole point of what building a true democracy is really like, they are too busy trying to tear down or paint over the other color.
Life, love, relationships, politics, business, religion, and in fact everything has many different shades of grey. If you want to make it in any one thing, take your nose out of your paint bucket, then take a few steps back and the look at the canvas. As you focus on things with your new perspective, you might find that adding those shades of grey will complete your masterpiece, better your life and help you grow close the world around you!
Do you add shades of grey to your pictures? Or are you stuck with trying paint them all over with black or white?
