Fire and Ice

Bloganuary Day 19

Today’s Prompt: What colour describes your personality and why?

Wow! What a question! The first colour that comes to mind is Orange. It’s my favourite colour (Although cerise is slowly starting to overtake it… ) so I guess it describes something about me.

I love that orange is so vibrant. It’s the colour of the sun and of some of the most beautiful sunsets. It is warm and joyful and creates feelings of positivity for me. It’s energetic and encourages creativity. It also stands out in a crowd. Orange is also the colour of flames and of, well, an orange, a very nutritious fruits. So how does this all fit with my personality?

I am often told by friends and colleagues that I am a very positive person. I get a lot of my energy from giving people the tools to thrive and just sharing a positive word when I think someone might need it. I definitely do believe that I am creative! I havee also always stood out in some way or another. Sometimes it was physically but most often, it was because I always seem to have a different point of view. I see different connections between the dots compared to most around me so it often seems as if I have gone off on a tangent…lol. I have become quite accustomed to the eyebrow raises and the looks of “what planet did she did just drop off?”! It used to bug me when I was younger, now I just say my piece and if you don’t agree, it’s ok. I am also pretty passionate about some things and of course that is where it’s quite easy to ignite a flame within…lol

I apologise as I know this is not my best post. I am definitely not giving off Orange vibes tonight. Probably more blue as I am dog tired after a long first day back at work for the week. Blue does go very well with orange though so I guess this is the other side of my personality. 😉 Oh and those that have had the misfortune of stepping on my toes or the toes of those I love too often or too hard, can attest to my icy side. It’s not my favourite side but helps me keep my boundaries intact.

Well, my bed and a cup of chamomile tea calls. That’s it from me for tonight. Thanks for stopping by. Bye for now.
