Every Color

I isolated myself for the better part of two years. I sacrificed friends, family, and coworkers to be with myself. I lived in dark, decaying apartments with toxic neighbors, vindictive staff, and a general odor of dog piss after it rained. I needed every second of that experience. In the darkness of day, between white brick walls I asked myself, “How can I be a better person? How can I be of service to others?”


Have you ever looked into a mirror and wondered what color it is? A mirror’s job is to reflect light or lack thereof to the viewer; painting the image of wherever it stands.

Depending on the size of the mirror it can show one eye in great detail, the elegance of a disorganized room, or it can be large enough to reflect the endless sky…

It doesn’t matter if the mirror is in a lavish hotel in Dubai or the crammed purse of a business person, the purpose of the mirror remains:

Every color.

Those who are meant to reflect are meant to bend every color. They are meant to bend flesh and tear gristle to show honesty.

Therefore my service is simple: Show every color. I unashamedly display my truth. As I walk barefoot through the warm sand, beach air flowing through my veins, I leave authenticity in my wake. I create a space for others to be their authentic self.

I create, bend and promote the balance between light and dark to reflect the unabashed glory of reality.

You are valid. You are worthy. You are glorious. You know this to be true because I am a reflection of you and I am those things and more. I serve you by telling you the truth and allowing you to decide if you are ready to do something about it.

How many times will you walk by the toothpaste splatter before you pick up the cleaner? How often will you view smudged makeup or food between your teeth without rectification?

I’ll show you every color, and you decide.

Peace.
