There are jobs that I secretly covet, among which is the job of naming paint colors. My mind feels like it’s skipping with joy when I read the elaborate descriptions that mark paint samples and I find great wonder in the selection of nouns that combine to create adjectives descriptive enough to separate two shades of orange that vary only by two degrees of tint.
The next time you are in a Walmart or Lowes, walk through the paint section. Pick up a few sample cards and read the color names out-loud. Just as there is beauty in the words chosen for each color, so too is there beauty in the words with which you choose to describe yourself.
What is your personal paint description and does your description match up with what others would say of you? Are you an Orange Parrot or Tangerine Dream, or are you more of a Determined Orange? What are the main two to three words that best describe you? Paint yourself how you aspire to be and you will become that. Be the colored with descriptions that you would be proud to be identified by, and you will end up loving the colors that you are, as I love being Positively Pink and full of Zesty Determination.
