A Colorful Day
Tuesday, June 23, 2015
I know what many of you are thinking... how is it possible to have a colorful day; a color is not an emotion. But to me, colorful is a more appealing word for happiness.
A close friend of mine on this Spark website often talks with me about life, happiness, emotions, and all of the above. I'm often intrigued by the positive energy that swarms him, and some others that ask how I'm doing occasionally. It's funny, because he recently joked about my Sparkpage being dark. I think he was joking about it, but it actually made me take a closer look at not only my Sparkpage, but my life in general.
Sometimes we can feel happiness from what we put in front of us. Happy images, inspiring quotes, and becoming friends with those that help us remember what happiness can be. I look around at my house... there's not a single painting on the wall, not a single motivation board, and not a single picture to remind me of what happiness feels like. My walls are blank, and although I can't paint due to it being a rental, I can still put things up that make me happy. My goodness sake, my comforter is even plain black. The same goes with my office: not a single thing is up right now.
I also took a look at my Sparkpage, and then I thought to myself... "it IS kind of dark!" So I decided to change it to something COLORFUL, like how I feel today. This weekend I also plan on finding ways I can redecorate my place for a more happy feel.
But although I'm having a colorful day, it doesn't mean that there aren't circumstances surrounding me that could cause me to be down and depressed. Firstly, my class right now is unrealistic in the amount of work that needs to be done. Secondly, I have a biopsy tomorrow to determine that if the HPV I caught when I was 16 has developed into cervical cancer. And lastly, on Monday I start TMS treatments that involve 14 straight days of magnetic energy rushing to my brain. And all while working a full-time job. Am I overwhelmed? Certainly. But on the bright side, I am looking at just that: the bright side.
I hope everyone looks to the bright side of things and has a colorful day today.
