Rainbows, Rainbows, and more Rainbows!!!
Hello, world. I hope this new week brings you all much creative fun, surprises, and joy!
Today I would like to discuss the rainbow.
Being of Caribbean descent my love for colors was there from birth. At an early age, I was always drawn to the rainbow because it is a heavenly creation. God himself created something so amazing that it showed up, after almost every storm. Another love for the rainbow came from an 80’s cartoon called Rainbow Bright. It wasn’t one of my favorites but I recall watching it from time to time and was amazed how a young girl/ character was able to produce the rainbow out of nothing. It wowed me. I can’t remember the storyline to the cartoon clearly but I think the rainbow always saved her or her friends from danger.
Looking back in time and even now I can look at pictures and see how colorful I was and still am. My clothes or shoes were always multi-colored and statement pieces (as much of a statement I thought they were making). As I grew older and more confident in my style, I can see how certain color combination was more prominent in my wardrobe, shades of blues, purples, pinks, or array of reds. What is your go-to color readers? Are you scared of some color or will try anything?
Like, honestly who can deny loving color? I will let that question sit for a moment!
Color adds a pop of life to your garments. Color adds life to whatever it is that you are wearing. Look at some of your pictures? What made you stand out besides being a fabulous human being? Check the outfit you wore, was it that pop color(s) you added to make your entire look go from dull to a head-turner.
Now I am not saying wearing solid black, white, denim or any other color alone looks lifeless and stale. Because remember it is all about the person in the clothes than it is about the clothes. But what I am saying is that I personally love it more when a pop color or two is introduced.
Now I give great credit to the LGBTQ Community for keeping the love of the rainbow alive! What else was a better representation of unity and love than the colorful flag?!?! I did some research first on the flag and wanted to make sure that as a straight, heterosexual female, I can still love the rainbow or claim it and not offend or discredit the community. I admit it was a struggle because I didn’t want to undermine or take away from the community. But when I concluded my research I learned so much and my take away was very informative. One thing that stood out was that each color represents so much. So I leave you all with this note. The rainbow takes away from no one and gives to everyone one. So if you are like me, a colorful, free-spirited, loving person, then rocked the flag, rock the rainbow, be that pop color you want to be, and continue loving the rainbow!
For those who are curious, each color is as follows. (Note I found this on WIKI if it is wrong I ask that you find it in your heart to forgive)
- Red = Life
- Orange = Healing
- Yellow = Sun
- Green = Nature
- Royal Blue = Harmony
- Violet = Spirit
