A few weeks ago I watched an interview with Dutch comedian Claudia de Breij. She talked about her youth and her feeling of not fitting in. She compared herself to a red marble in a bucket filled with blue marbles. I loved this comparison and it made me think about my own bucket.
There have been times I felt like the red marble. But nowadays I'm such a lucky girl. Over the years beautiful and unique marbles came rolling my way. I don't know why but they just did. And they still do, from unexpected corners, at unexpected moments. They are never plain blue. They have different colors, from smokey-grey to blood-red. Some have lines in purple, white or bluish-green. Some are transparant and others you have to rub carefully with polish to see their true colors. But when you do..wow! Beauty without comparison!
I wish for everyone to find such beautiful rare marbles cause they will enrich your life. Try to be open and attentive.. Maybe there's one laying in front of your left foot at this very moment..
