There’s a Miranda Lambert song that came out recently that I think has a really good message:
Ever since the beginning to keep the world spinning / It takes all kinds of kinds.
I try to think of that line when I’m feeling frustrated with someone. It sounds sort of like a Dr. Seuss story: short kinds, tall kinds, red kinds, blue kinds. But I really do think there’s truth to it. If everyone were exactly like me, a lot of adventures would go un-taken. And if no one were like me, a lot of shelves would go un-organized. It takes dreamers and doers, active folks, serene people, enthusiastic, slow-and-steady….it takes all of us. So I try not to be one of those she sings about who points the finger.
…but man, sometimes it is tempting…
