I want to open with an apology.
For months now I have been writing about my love for colors and urged you to be creative, step out of the mold, be bold and abandon the routine and the "gray". But between us, life is not black or white, and there's really no need for something else to come at the expense of another… there are many shades of gray.
If you have a soft spot for the gray color, you can have fun with it creatively, as you can with any other color and the latest trends in the fashion world attest to this.
It may be a matter of maturity or life experience, but over the years I learned to recognize the various shades of gray that exist between black and white. Even though I adopted some principles, I set rules and made myself promises. Life was stronger so they encouraged me to be open minded and adopt a new softness.
Don't get me wrong, I didn't become this airy fairy, light hearted person that accepts everything all the time. I still get road rage and then get upset that I got upset. I still promise myself every morning to do yoga and then get back in the evening and crash on the couch in the "downward dog resting now – Do Not Disturb" position and in general, finding loopholes in those rules and promises I set almost every day. It seems that even I often prefer shades of gray over the other colors.
So good morning it's eight-thirty! Have an awesome day in any color you choose, but promise me you'll start your day with a smile and don't arrive at work as a solemn gray winter day.
