Pouring over my daily dose of inspiration I was looking for a great idea to write about, and most great ideas come from other bloggers who know much more than me.
I didn’t have to look very far to find one that hit me right where I live. It was on the site called Creative Guru , which features great ideas, fantastic writing and a tale of self discovery.
Today there was a post about what color she is, not literally, but here personality. That she was once a yellow but over time has become more of a blue. She started to have blue infiltrate her life, to fill it up. Blue just started to show up in clothing and household items.
I was intrigued because I was trying to see if there was a color that had infiltrated my life. I enjoyed the writing so much I commented and stated that I didn’t particularly notice any color all over my life. She suggested to start by noticing the color of the shirt I was wearing today.
I looked down at my blue jacket I had on, and unzipped the coat. Revealing a shirt the exact shade of blue as the jacket. “That is kind of strange” I thought to myself, then noticed further the blue pants I had on. I looked like a giant walking blueberry. I even had blue socks on!
It was absolutely true that I put no thought into what I was going to wear today, I just picked what jumped out at me and that was blue. How accurate could this color business be? Well here is what blue is said to reveal about your personality:
” Lovers of blue have a deep need to find inner peace and truth, to live their life according to their ideals and beliefs without having to change their inflexible viewpoint of life to satisfy others.”
This was kind of a strange thing because without looking very hard I found the following pieces I have written in the past year about living my life by my own ideals.
A Path to Inner Peace , Everything You Do Matters, Forgive and move on,
Then I learned that those who favor Indigo:
“have a need to feel in harmony and at one with the Universe and to be accepted by others as the aware and intuitive spiritual beings that they are.”
Which I wrote about in a post called My Biggest Fear, which happens to be the fear of what others think about me. Much of what I write is from a spiritual perspective or has been influenced by my journey of self discovery. Then I was totally psyched up because there is definitely something to this color business. You can pick almost any of the posts I have written and they come from this base. Read any of the Thirty Question Project posts and they will reveal the truth, that yes, I am blue, but in a good way!
Then I started to think about how blue I really am, how I own other color shirts but I like blue the best, from my trusty superman shirt to any and all New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox paraphernalia I wear on a semi-regular basis. Blue, blue, blue, there is no escaping it I am a blue man. I should move to Vegas and join the Blue Man Group.
In all seriousness I enjoy learning about new things so much, and to find out things that are signs of why I think the way I do, act the way I do, and wear what I wear.
This was so much fun and such a great experience that I decided to post it immediately so if you are interested in seeing where your personality type lies then follow the link below! You may be blue, red, yellow, or some other color. No matter what where you fit in on the spectrum of color. It is OK because that is who you are! Wear you colors proudly.
