I love pink. My phone was pink. My taser is pink. My pepper spray is pink. I have pink shoes (not that many-I have mostly gray shoes). I have pink dresses here and there. I have never had pink hair, though. Hmm. Now there’s a thought. I wonder how people would react to me if I were to dye my hair pink. I would still be the same bossy, smart, and highly-driven me. Maybe I can try a pink wig for a bit to experiment on social perceptions. It could be a lot of fun. And, I like fun. Who doesn’t? Well, I do know many buzzkillers. Regardless of all this, I love pink. However, my life colors are changing. Which had me singing Cyndi Lauper’s song True Colors.
In a non new-age manner, I believe that we all have certain colors that work best for us. Whether they capture our personalities, accentuate our fashion sense, or enhance our skin tones, there are colors we all gravitate towards. I have always been a blend of black, purple, and pink. And, I still love those colors. My numerous gray shoes go with all of those, especially purple. Nonetheless, I have added a new color this year.
I am now a blue girl. I like blue. I never did before. But I have added blue accents throughout my house. I have blue throughout my office space. And now, I am wearing bright blue dresses. And, they all really pop. It may be that this year, I wanted to break out from the past and apply a spring attitude to life for the whole year. I associate blue with spring and Alice in Wonderland. And, this year feels like a mix of both of those things. It is a year of rejuvenation and extreme whimsy. Whenever I see blue, I also smell an ocean breeze. It may be a thirst for a brand new world. Whatever it is, my life is now caked in blue. And, I expect it to be fun.
