My surroundings changed recently. It has dashes of color orange in it.
Coincidentally my mood also has lifted after hitting the lowest low.
The change I am sure, happened to a large extent because I decided I do not want to mope. Willpower is essential. Partly the mood change can be attributed to the change too. But I am beginning to feel we also need some help along the way. And today, when I am trying to write something in response to a writing challenge with the theme color, I am starting to believe orange has, and is, helping me. Orange has been a favorite color for sometime; have held on to orange-colored items – be it a pen, vase, or a notebook.
Now, daily I get to see an orange wall smack in front of me when I sit to watch TV, or sit for dinner, or lie down on bed for a rest. I see orange Tupperware, orange curtains, orange flowers. Picked orange just because it is a nice color. Have heard stuff being associated with various other colors like blue, yellow, red, white, black. But orange has been just plain orange – a colorful bright cheerful color!!!!
