Years ago, my mom and dad were building their new home. They had moved from Ohio to Florida. This was the era when women were having their “colors” done. Someone like a Mary Kay agent would hold up different colors of material swatches by your face to see which ones made you look washed out, which colors made you look like you had dark circles under your eyes, and which ones made you look fresh and awake.
This was also the era when Mom heard the color mauve made you look wealthy. She heard the color mauve attracted wealth and if she had most of her home mauve, she would attract wealth. She was a devout Christian but believed in covering all her bases.
To each his own.
I know, if I’m in a dark room for a while, I get depressed. When God gave me my wonderful, new, Godly hubby, I saw he had a darker shade of blue room. This wasn’t awful. I knew we could always paint over it. Psychological studies have been done on the colors of walls and depression/aggression. Having come from a history of battling depression, my favorite color is bright yellow. It’s a cheery color. It makes me happy. I know I have to purpose to be in the right surroundings, including colors, if I am to retain my stabilization.
We heard it may take a little longer than expected to get our closing monies. We were expecting them in one week. We have 7 bills due till then. We have several bills due in exactly 9 days. I am purposing to wear some favorite colors and to retain my sanity. God help me.
