Orange + Red?
Have you lost your mind?
This is what I may have said to myself, a few years ago…
Even a couple of months ago…
About putting these two colors on my body
At the same time.
In fact, I don’t think I had ever even owed anything orange until recently.
Trusting myself when I get dressed in the morning was also something I didn’t do.
Often, I wore black.
The same black jeans and black shirt.
Not that I’m against that amazing combo.
I was hiding behind it though.
I had no idea how much I loved vibrant COLOR.
Now, I do know.
Now, black isn’t my go to outfit.
I love it.
It feels like color has spilled over into everything else.
Everyday, my mind is blown by a new aha moment, a new breakthrough where I had been stuck.
I can see why research has shown that a brain the keeps learning is less likely to have dementia.
The synapses in my brain feel like they keep firing and lighting up with new neural pathways
My body feels like it’s learning new emotions and feeling more alive.
Getting dressed in the morning reminds me of all of the things that keep getting better and better.
Getting to this place hasn’t been comfortable.
There has been challenging work to do and I know there is more.
I used to get bugged if I wasn’t good at something right away.
I used to be embarrassed if I wasn’t the best in the class.
Now, I’m okay with not being the best in the class…
Or if I don’t get it right away…
Because I trust myself to get there
I know I won’t give up
I’m feeling more and more excited about me
And less and less worried about being better or worse than someone else
It feels like a treasure hunt where the treasure is at every turn and not just at the end.
If you’d like to get in on the treasure hunt for feeling more alive on the daily…
And stop wearing the same thing every darn day…
If you wanna stop wondering if there are other days to live other than the one you seem to be living on repeat…
If you’d like more color in your life the same way I wanted more color in my wardrobe and didn’t even realize it…
If you’d like to stop feeling like you’re helping everyone else in your life get what they want with no energy left for yourself…
If you wish you could stop hiding in the back and shine up front…
If you totally resonate with Iris in the movie “The Holiday” and want to start being the leading lady in your own life…
We can talk and figure out if working together is the next step for you.
