This Christmas, my good friend, Simone, sent me pink earrings. I opened them and said, “These are pretty, but I don’t wear pink.” The next gift was from John – and it was a set of pink hat and gloves for running. I repeated, “These are pretty, but I don’t wear pink.”
My daughter inquisitively asked, “Why don’t you wear pink? You’d look good in pink.” Hmmm. Why don’t I wear pink? Then, I remembered… and responded, “Because pink clashes with red hair.” She said, “Who says?” That was a good question.. who says? Though I can’t remember who… I do know it was about 40+ years ago!Later that morning, I put on the gorgeous pink earrings and the pink hat and gloves and went running. I felt beautiful. Maybe I really should wear more pink!Are you holding on to any out-dated (or just plain wrong) beliefs? Has anyone ever told you that you couldn’t do something? Be someone? Is it really true? And, why would you trust them more than yourself? Today might be a good day to reevaluate your beliefs – who you really are, based not on out-dated beliefs and comments from others…but from your inner beauty and unique talents.
wise women wear pink!
