Blue, black, red or grey. Whatever you may prefer doesn’t really matter when the question is about life. All our lives are painted with different colours by different people or even things and animals.
Red becomes the colour to express love or danger. Well frankly, it’s quite right. Because love is a pretty dangerous entity. Moving on, grey becomes the colour of dullness and depression.
Let me first state one of my theories on the colours blue and pink.
Pink is a warm colour. It’s the colour which is a reminder of the majestic pink blush on the cheeks of the new born babies. In very plain words, pink represents soft, caring and sweet.
However, blue is the colour which represents the sky or even water. Like the phrase goes “the sky’s the limit’ or like we all know that water takes the shape of whatever container you pore it in, blue is a reminder of freedom.
The realisation that I had after going about on this theory is: reason why girls love pink and boys, mostly, love blue. The emotions of soft, sweet and caring are just simple characteristics of girls so they relate to the colour. On the contrary, boys are all about having freedom. Boys want to fly high up in the sky. The idea of limitless freedom gives them a rush. Therefore the choice of blue is obvious.
Let’s not forget the fact that these days many boys prefer pink too. Sadly, they’re tagged gay when that’s the case which I, personally, don’t agree with. Boys are equally capable of being sentimental. Likewise, girls are equally capable of being adventurous.
The purpose of stating this theory is to make all of you aware about the fact that how the colours that we choose represent us.
Now what are the bright colours? Red, yellow or green? What are the dark colours? Black, Brown or navy blue? As long as we’re talking about colours of life there is no such thing as dark or bright. All the colours of life are bright. That’s the most amazing part. Why should only love and friendship be symbolised with red and yellow? Why can’t yellow be used as a low in our lives, like losing a job?
For darkness to go away, we need to light a candle or flip the switch on. Lets not forget, only when you mix black and white you get the colour red.
Only in the darkness of the night we can see the stars. Likewise, only in our dark times can we actually appreciate and value the good times.
“Things go wrong so that we appreciate them when they are right. Sometimes good things fall apart so that better things can fall together.” – Marilyn Monroe.
So the next time when you’re sad, choose a colour like yellow or orange or even pink to wear while you go for work or any gathering. It will keep reminding you that nothing is big enough to pull you down. After every sunset, there is a sunrise. The rainbows in the sky show that God’s promises are true. In the same way, the colours of our lives are like the seasons. They promise us that this bad time too shall pass. Paint the canvas of your life with bright colours when you’re happy but paint it with the brightest when you’re gloomy.
