I used to HATE the color pink! like TOTALLY despise it! but if you notice. My cape and my logo for SuperADDmom is pink!
I dunno....it slowly started to shift. perhaps it is because I'm apparently a "spring" in my skin tone.
I never knew that before an older caring friend who is like a mother to me, gave me a pink top 2 years ago, telling me it was my color. I put in my dresser for months before I took it out and wore it one day because I had nothing else clean to wear!
I took a selfie that day and posted it to my personal FB page and I got dozens of compliments on how good I looked!
I did a Google search last night on the meanings of colors,because I realized the internal shift I had had with my feelings on the colour and I think now the reason I hated pink was because of what it represents and how it makes us feel and a lot of those things were not things I felt internally in myself.
"Psychologically pink is associated with compassion, nurturing, love, and romance. It is feminine and youthful in its softer shades, with more passion and energy in its deeper shades.
Pink is inspiring, warm and comforting, suggesting hope for the future. It is calming and non-threatening.
Physiologically, it calms and reassures our emotional energies, alleviating feelings of anger, aggression, resentment, abandonment and neglect."
I was not compassionate with myself, I did not nurture my soul, I did not love myself or feel worthy of the love I was given by my husband for years! I never felt "feminine enough" for pink.
Over the years, as I have worked on healing my inner child from a life of being ADHD and not knowing it, and feeling like I was stupid and lazy and a failure...I have grown to love myself more, to nurture myself, and accept my flaws and appreciate the things I AM good at.
I am worthy of love, and compassion. I am worth the time it takes to nurture myself, and as those things shifted...so too, has how I looked at the colour pink.
That is why SuperADDmom loves pink And I think pink is a perfect description for how I feel about things now, and how I share my life as SuperADDmom with you!
