Posts Tagged ‘Colour’

It has been a week of mixed emotions as change seems to be in the air, hovering in sweeping circles overhead. I’ve decided that this is going to be my last ‘Purple Project Post’ as I believe I am entering into a new season, with the colour orange leading the way.

The purple journey has been fascinating on so many levels, as I’ve come to better value myself as ‘The Purple Princess’, Visualizing who I am through the eyes of God, who I very much believe in.  It has given me a greater awareness of where I have come from and where I should be heading. A growing confidence to stand my ground, love myself more and say no to others has not always been comfortable, yet the rewards are there, perhaps not clearly visible for all to see, but they are there.

Seasons come and go and with them new colours and shades fill our earth. The purple flowering plants that have brought me so much insight and pleasure over the last few weeks, have been replaced with yellows and orange. Cheery spring flowerings, whispering new life, and future expectations.

I’m not sure where this journey is headed next, but I think I’d better go and find the orange nail polish.

For new followers of this blog, I decided back in July to set out on a new journey of self discovery. I have found it both challenging and rewarding. Let me introduce you to my first ‘Purple Project Post’, so you can get a bit of an idea.

The Purple Project. Week 1

It is said that purple can represent royalty, with darker hues suggesting magic and mystery. As a woman I would like to be treated as a princess and a little bit of magic and mystery can go a long way, when it comes to achieving our life goals.

What does the princess do though, when she forgets how precious she is? When the regal purple robes turn to drab shades of grey and the tiara that is supposed to be on her head, is lost to the dress up box of childhood memories?

This is the dilemma many of us find ourselves in.

I recently decided to reclaim my rightful throne, dress in something purple every day and reinvent myself, by bringing this rich colour into my life. It is amazing how much purple I actually have in my wardrobe, once I take a look.

Some days you may have to look hard to see it, but it will be there. Sometimes on show, sometimes hidden.

Let ‘The Purple Project’ begin.

As I head into week nine of this adventure, I have experianced a whole range of thoughts and emotions. Things that I percieved might happen have not, yet some unexpected treasures are presenting themselves in such creative ways, that I am enjoying the thrill of expectancy.

I do have one tale to tell though, the day I forgot to wear purple. A recent trip to get my car checked out after a re-call, saw me rushing out of the house early in the morning to allow plenty of time for traffic. It was as I wandered the shops (well a girl has to do something for the two hours wait), that I realized in my haste, I was not wearing anything purple.

Now I knew that the world was not about to collapse on me, but a little panic set in and I just happened to walk past a clearance rack of scarfs. One miraculously jumped into my hands and before I knew it, it was paid for and around my neck. (Well that’s my excuse and I am sticking to it.) Not wanting to make the same mistake again, I have now painted my toe nails a rich, dark purple. If the weather continues to warm up they may even get to be seen.

It is an incredible journey that I find myself on and I am starting to wonder. What would happen if I coloured my world green or orange? But that might be a whole new story.
