​COLOURING BY NUMBERS

When I was a child I had a book called
colouring by numbers.
The outlines of everything
were all there on the picture.
I just had to colour in the spaces.
 
Areas with ‘one’ were blue
and those with ‘two’ were yellow
and so on.
The picture came alive in front of me.
The outcome was complete and perfect!

Imagine if you could have the outline of your life
as a picture ready to be filled in now.
It would mean that we wouldn’t live
on the basis of process or journey
thinking about what happens next year
or what our next job will be.

It’ll all be there in the outline.
We just need to follow the numbers
in any order we want.
Nothing will be left out.
All will be complete and perfect.
Draw your outline!
