About a year ago, I purchased a book by the name of "Fortune Telling- Book of colors". In this book the author talks about the meaning of colors in reference to our zodiac sign and the way we decorate our personal space, the cars we drive, the clothes we wear and even the lipstick shades we choose. It also speaks to the energy that each color brings and much more. I recently pulled this tiny book out because I noticed that I have been particularly drawn to the color yellow. Every time I shoot I've noticed that yellow is involved in some way. In the portion of the book that references color in relation to your personality, it says "Your disposition fits your color- you are happy and sunny and people are drawn to you because of it. Yellows are creative beings and visionaries. You have big ideas, but follow-through is not your forte; you do best if you convey your ideas to others who can carry them out. You can be very critical , both of yourself and others. Generally, your intellectual strength is superior to your physical strength and you are able to make quick and reasoned decisions. A career in marketing or advertising would play to you assets." Now this may seem very general to some but to me it has and a VERY real meaning and told me exactly why I have been wearing yellow so often.
It has taken me awhile to figure out what my passion is. I've had years of giving up on great ideas, years of questioning whether or not I am "good enough", years of feeling sorry for myself because I didn't have the perfect parents and the solid upbringing that so many of my friends did. I have doubted whether I am too old to pursue the things that I love but then the yellow energy found me! Through my blog and weekly marathon shopping, I've found what I love to do. As the book describes, "yellows are creative beings and visionaries"; I am finally able to express who I am through my clothing an the imagery and content that I create. I LOVE IT. I've always heard that you should find the thing that keeps you up at night and wakes you up in the morning. This is it! Newtexacali is it. It's also ironic that the book says yellows would be great at a career in marketing or advertising! A blog, website, being a LiketoKnow.it member, pitching brands, and negotiating is something I have gotten very good at over the last year and I am determined to be the best. I am continuing to work on my follow-through although working on my blog pushes me to change that daily. I still struggle with stepping outside of my comfort zone but I am a continued work in progress and I don't plan on giving up this time!
In the " The Clothing You Wear" section of the book it says "Happiness is yellow's key word, and when you wear it you spread happiness but also feel more upbeat about yourself." It's really amazing how your internalized energy comes out in the clothes that you wear! I'm happy y'all and it literally shows!
