All or nothing! You're either with me or against me! You are either part of the problem or part of the solution! WE love these all or nothing cliches but the fact of the matter is that most of life is lived in the shadows...or gray areas of life. It is so convenient when things in life can line up in the black or white category, but they seldom do. Mathematicians love that numbers just are what they are and 2 + 2 will always equal 4. That being said, the mathematics pe3rson still has to live in a world full of gray matter. Kids, pets, spouses, neighbors and co-workers refuse to fit into neat little boxes.
I enjoy the nuances of a sub sandwich with everything on it. I savor all the flavors of a combination pizza. In the same way, we need to learn to not only expect, but to enjoy all the intricacies of this world and the people that we encounter. Let's celebrate gray!
