"You have to color outside the lines once in a while if you want to make your life a masterpiece."
- Albert Einstein
Coloring outside the lines refers to doing things your own way. It can also represent a different way of thinking that is common in neurodivergent individuals. ADHDers, Autistics, and individuals with various types of learning disabilities tend to color outside the lines. And that's perfectly okay. In fact, it can be a significant strength! Just like colored pencils in a box, we are all unique. We are also all different in the way that we learn and understand the world around us.
Understanding how and why we color outside of the lines and learning to see our differences as strengths, rather than weaknesses, is the best way to achieve success. For example, did you know that those with learning differences tend to be more creative and can use their outside of the box thinking to create masterpieces?
