A friend and I had planned to meet up for lunch at an Indian restaurant. It is almost summer here , the weather is absolutely gorgeous. Have you ever wondered what it is about summer that makes you want to go bold and bright ? Cheerful happy energy all around, right from the beautiful sun rays , the chirpy birds, the laughter of children,the fresh veggies, the green grass…..everything ! “There are times when you absolutely need to take time for yourself , enjoy the simple joys life has to offer ,before life passes you by and reach out to that little girl inside you” said the voice in my head, it got louder by the minute as I skimmed through my wardrobe wondering what to wear.
If you have played dress up as little girls do, then you would absolutely get what I am trying to say here ……
Colors and pretty clothes brighten up one’s mood any day, though I love bright colors, it isn’t often you would spot me in bright colors, yet ,”this afternoon it seemed absolutely necessary to discard the boring ‘work’ colors of black , white and gray and go for the kill instead” me thought and pulled out the brightest of them all.How often we completely forget the little princess within and don different roles the society demands of us ? Nurture her,coz she will nurture YOU !
Driving towards the restaurant, the traffic lights paled in comparison, not the one to be deterred easily, I drove on,foot to the pedal……
Pharrell Williams’s, HAPPY played on the radio,matching the mood perfectly, the heavy construction work on the road did not dull the spirit either……. I tell you, anytime you need a ‘pick me up’ or a mood elevator, choose happy colors !
Had a lovely long lunch at the Indian restaurant, nothing like woman friends to bond with over good food and laughter.The meal was sumptuous, the weather perfect,life is good when you learn to cherish each moment, dare to surprise yourself remembering things that make you happy and work on it…after all, you have but one life !
The little girl within, giggled and asked me ,”When shall we play dress up again ?”, as I headed towards the car park, “I told you, it’s going to be absolute fun !!”
I nodded smiling gently, as I headed to the parking lot, sure enough what should appear in front of me, but a license plate with a message from the Universe……
I toldya, you can never go wrong , playing dress up !! So tell me, who wants to play dress up today ? What colors would you choose to brighten your day ??
