Here's Something To Feel Good About Today!
2010-03-28 True ColorsIf you ask a five year old what their favorite color is you will probably get a straight answer; one of the primary or secondary colors or perhaps pink for little girls. As a child I had so many favorite colors that my response became a litany; deep cobalt blue, all shades of purples, aqua, and mint green, until I learned that all colors where contained in the color white, then white became my favorite color because I simply couldn't choose just one.
When my older sisters chose basic colors for their wardrobe, I was often teased when I wore my purple patterned skirt with the violet sweater, so for a time, I denied my real color preferences so I could fit in. Later in life I learned that all the things that made me different then, are all the gifts that make me unique now.
As an artist I love color, especially purple and today I have a purple cell phone cover, a purple mug for my tea, a purple, pen and a purple car. Who I am and what I love makes my life joyful and colorful and I won't have it any other way.
I think of each us as a unique flower. Are you living your life according to parameters set by others, or are you willing to step out of the box and express your true colors? I'd love to hear your thoughts on living a joyful and colorful life!
