“How was your day?”
“Good, but everyone was so surprised to see me wearing white.”
“That’s becauase all you wear is black… it’s depressing, you were always sad. Now you’re happy, bright, wearing colours, and talking.”
There’s been a shift.
And it’s spilling over into something so small as my clothing.
Where I used to wear black from head to toe, keep my hair down to cover my face, stay back from the conversation, furrow my brow, I’m now busting through with vibrant colour.
I’m looking for bright clothing when I shop, seeking out the yellows, blues, and pinks. I’m walking with my head up and smiling at people I walk past, and taking time to seek out conversations with people.
I’m taking time to think about how I feel, how I want to feel, and my goals.
I’m enjoying the sun.
And I’m enjoying this new outlook.
I feel lighter, brighter, and happier.
It could be the weather, it could be the meds, it could be a combination. Regardless it’s a wonderful change.
Bring on the bright.
