I’m Seeing Red

The color red, coming back into my life.

Someone said, “You have a boldness to you, but a sweet heart.”  Then Bossman at the pizza place said, “You’re blossoming Barb!”

Red has been my favorite color most of my adult life, but somewhere along the path I lost that color. I leaned toward the more neutral, softer colors and felt I had lost my boldness.

Red is loud and vibrant which were words used to describe me, but without realizing it, I had become quiet and soft spoken. That’s not me.

The first time it resonated was in December. I wanted some new house shoes and saw these booties. I had seen women wear them to Yoga, so they would have dual purpose.

What I didn’t realize at the time of purchase is that they are hand knitted, so they didn’t arrive in time for Christmas. No lovely, they arrived in January which was fitting to have them in this new year.

I wear them all the time!

Then came blanket with balls.

When I bought this blanket, I had a choice between pale pink or red. I have gravitated toward pink this year, but the red one spoke to me more.

Well lovely….Pink is a pale red and that is how I felt. Like my red had faded to pink.

After the blanket, Foxy showed up and I placed him in this planter. When I learned how to make memes, I used a fox quite often in the picture.

I’ve noticed a change in my voice from working at the pizza place. My job there is to love on people, but some people need a lot of love.

A couple of weeks ago, Bossman asked me to call a dissatisfied customer. We needed to make him happy with our services so Boss said, “Don’t use your big Barb voice. Use your sweet one.”

As I made my bed this morning, I noticed at some point this year I placed these two pillows there. These pillows have with me for over ten years, but they were packed away during our last move. I bought a new pillow, (the one with the bugs) and it has sprinkles of red, but the other two are a nice pale red. Red has always been my color.

Don’t allow life or people to fade your color.

Don’t shrink yourself to fit others needs.

I’m grateful the color red has come back into my life and my being. God made me to be bold and I lost it for a while, but today I’m seeing red.

  1. How lovely! While I’m traditionally a blue/grey kind of gal (I find blue and grey, in all their intensities very soothing), I do love red when it has a blue undertone. So cheerful! A fresh pedicure with red lacquer is such a game changer! LOL

  2. This reminded me of last year when we were building our barn the we told the builder we wanted red he showed us the two choices and we picked bright red. The builder said that is really bright – it will stand out like a sore thumb. My husband asked if that was what I liked and I said yes. Hubby agreed and we told the builder “we want to stand out.”
