Move Along- the Best Option

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

city scene“Move along, you don’t fit in.” If you heard this when you were eight years old, you would be crushed. They don’t want you in their game or to be part of their club. Childhood is not a time when you want to stand out. Your most important goal is to fit in.

You’re not eight years old anyone. Are you still trying to fit in?

Super Bowl mania took over the airways this past weekend. Football fan or not, you had to watch it if only for those commercials, right? How could you face your friends and coworkers if you didn’t even know the final score?

How many things do you do because you feel like you have to? It’s expected…if you want to fit in.

 What if every choice you made was based only on your own opinion?

If no one else cared or would even ask if you watched the Super Bowl, would you still watch it? Or would you choose to spend your time doing something you really enjoy?

There are consequences for not fitting in. You move along- to something better. You enjoy YOUR life!

“People who cannot invent and reinvent themselves must be content with borrowed postures, secondhand ideas, fitting in instead of standing out.”  Warren G. Bennis

The Magic Power of Color

Sunday, July 15th, 2012

“I like to wear bright colors, but I’m unsure which colors look good on me.

How do I know what color will make me look my best?”

It’s as easy as looking in your mirror. But instead of asking yourself, “Does this color look good on me?” ask the question, “How does this color make me feel?”

Color speaks to our emotions and those emotions we describe as feelings. When you are experiencing a positive emotion, you would say you’re feeling happy. When you’re emotionally touched at the end of a tragic movie, you feel sad.

Try on a color and pay attention to the feeling that surfaces. Wearing your “favorite” color, you’ll no doubt feel happy because you associate that color with a positive emotion. A color that has a negative emotion attached to it, maybe the color of a uniform you were forced to wear, will leave you feeling uneasy wearing that color.

If a color brings up no particular feelings, good or bad, you may look fine in the color, but you won’t feel your best. Select colors that make you feel good. You’ll smile at your reflection and carry that confident feeling throughout the day.

That’s the Magic Power of Color.
