What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday
On my desk is my altered journal and DML planner. Also a new Distrss Ink, -shabby shutters; have fallen in love with this new color. At the base of the lamp are bits of tissue paper left over from WOYWW ATC’s. and a Starbucks coffee sleeve (a Mother’s Day treat). My paper basket is overflowing with bits of paper, ribbon and material from creating.
I woke up this morning at 1:45, couldn't go back to sleep so brewed some coffee and worked on this journal page in my altered book. While I feel calmer, exhaustion is taking over yet I have the whole day left in front of me. Sigh…
I skipped several weeks of the DML simply because I felt like they have gotten away from the documenting part and more into the challenges part. I made the planner and want to see it through the end so I am trying to find a way to incorporating the challenges with the planner. I also have been avoiding working in it because I am in a rut, the same rut I have been in for several years now and by not working in the planner I avoid acknowledging this.
Lately I have been forgoing my favorite color purple for green. I never thought about one’s favorite color changing but it makes sense.
According to color psychology, green
“… is the color of balance and harmony. From a color psychology perspective, it is the great balancer of the heart and the emotions, creating equilibrium between the head and the heart.”
“From a meaning of colors perspective, green is also the color of growth, the color of spring, of renewal and rebirth. It renews and restores depleted energy. It is the sanctuary away from the stresses of modern living, restoring us back to a sense of well being.”
Thinking about this and where my life is right now, it makes sense to be attracted more towards green than purple. The stressors of teaching are taking a huge toll. Change is needed, it is inevitable, I'm just not sure in which direction to head.
Has your favorite color changed as your life has changed? Did you go back to your original favorite color once the change took place or is the new color still your favorite?
