Getting Out Of The Color Comfort Zone
“Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.” ~Color Wheel Pro
Full disclosure, orange isn’t one of my favorite colors but after finding out what it represents I just may have to alter my thinking. Colors are known to have a psychological effect on the human psyche.
Since I need a little mental boost for tomorrow I pulled out my sleeveless lightweight knit orange surplice top and tote bag (tan & black) with a decorative orange tassel and gold accents. I’m still a little undecided on what I will wear with this top but I feel comfortable with my choice.
At my recent visit to the ophthalmologist this past Friday I found out there could be an issue with the retina in my right eye. After many pokes, proddings, and punctures to my eyes over the course of 10 years, I didn’t think there was anything left to intimidate me.
Because the doctor was unable to get a clear view of my retinas from the photos and her examination she referred me back to my retina specialist. As I tried to understand what she saw when she used the word “schisis” and said my retina could be partially torn, I’d already moved on to the “how do we fix it” mode. Depending upon what’s going on in the eye the retina specialist may not need to do anything further, however, the possibility of having yet another gas bubble injected into the eye got my attention. I think I can do just about anything except allowing a gas bubble to be injected without some sort of nerve medication. I only had this particular procedure done once at the doctor’s office (while fully alert) and I swore then I wouldn’t go through it again.

Even though I am not an extrovert (one of the words to describe the color orange) I like a pop of color to brighten up an outfit. Whatever the outcome tomorrow I feel confident that I’ll feel confident in my little orange top.
What do you do when you need a little mental boost?
