The color blue reduces stress, creating a sense of calm and relaxing order. How do you feel when you look up at the blue sky or look at blue water? Free? The paler the blue the more free we feel.
I've painted the walls in my house a light blue, kinda gray blue. I wanted my home to feel like my safe and sound space.
This past weekend in my home town was the annual Jazz and Blues Festival. Cue music....down home bluesssss, down home bluessss, all she wanted to hear was them down home blues, all night long...... Singing about one's trials and tribulations makes us all feel just a bit better. Gotta love the Blues!
My sister loves to quote this line from the movie, The Color Purple, as one of the leads in the movie explains how "Miss Celie's Blues was created. "Cause she scratched it out of my head when I was ailin" My Sissy always uses this as her good reason for loving up on us. :)
So I guess the color blue really reminds me of how safe and secure my family and my surroundings make me feel. How about you....what's your color?
Thanks for stopping by.....Peace and Happy Hair
