Tickled Pink

Although pink is not my signature color…

Not that I really have one.

But if I did…I would have to say it would be the color blue.

So today, I purposely looked in my closet for the color pink.

Um…this is what I found.

A pink hoodie I bought several years ago at a Child Development Training/Conference.

This is probably only my third time wearing it. I’m not quiet sure why I even  bought it at all. Maybe the cute logo on the side? Do you see it? It’s a picture of three crayons representing children holding hands. The slogan says, “Little People Color Our World.”

With the temperature only in the mid 50’s today and rain, I decided to pull it off the hanger and wear it. It was then that I remembered why I hardly ever wear it. It is hand wash only. Ugh! Who has time to wash by hand? Obviously,I don’t. LOL

After I returned home from my errands, I decided to research the meaning of the color pink. To my surprise, the color somewhat represents my character. The spiritual meaning of pink represents caring, compassion, unconditional nurturing love, understanding and is associated with giving and receiving care. These traits are all a part of who I am particularly as a mother and Child Development Specialist working with children and families. Because of this, I give PINK one point.

I have to admit, I LOVE to photograph flowers. And when it’s PINK…It POPS!

It’s fair to say you can never go wrong with a little Pink

Because of this, I give the color pink five more points for a total of six.

With that being said, here is another selfie of me wearing pink.

YES! Another four points for Pink Creativity.

Pink gets a 10!

One would think I would be quite fond of this color after reading this. But that’s not the case.

My philosophy:

~La Vie Est Belle en Blue~

Life is beautiful in blue.

What’s your signature color? Is it PINK?

    Very interesting commentary on the color pink, Laura. The hoodie looks nice on you. But I’m with you…I’m very much a “blue” kinda guy. More the darker shades, but I like the full spectrum of blue colors.

          I do the daily word prompt and weekly photo challenge as often as I can. It keeps me writing when I otherwise might not.😀

            Sometimes I struggle with a main topic for the day. I thought maybe a single word may inspire me sometimes. Thanks, Laura! Enjoy your weekend… 🙂

    1. Thank you so much. I probably should give pink a chance. LOL And the flowers…they always stand out to me in nature but when on a rack or shelf, I tend to walk on by. So sad…but I’ll try to do better. 🙂

    1. I read that purple is a mix of the stability of the blue and the energy of the red…as well as mystery, power, magic and luxury. I think purple is bold. It stands out more than the pink.💜

    1. Thanks Elaine! I guess the little hand-holding crayons are worth it. It’s no longer in the back part of my closet!😀
