Blue Mondays and Pink Fridays
Saturday morning I sat on my exercise ball and enjoyed a few minutes writing a little bit about my the last few days, it was priceless. I also went to the store to buy a new cork board, I started decorating my new little office corner and I got so excited I couldn’t stop adding more prints and other goodies that I remind and inspire me throughout the day. I also wanted to organize the blog calendar which by the way, has never been organized, it needed urgent care, it was a mess.
When I started the blog I did it as a hobby that I could get lost in once or twice a week. I had never imagined that I would find myself enjoying writing posts so much, until recently, when I started doing it almost everyday, then the hard work started paying back, I was hooked. So after all the changes in my life lately I decided to continue with this blogging adventure with a purpose. I knew that to start I needed a bit more organization, and a blog calendar couldn’t hurt.
So I took some markers and started doodling on a blank piece of paper. For some reason I took a soft blue for Monday, green for a Tuesday, orange for Wednesday, purple for Thursday, pink for Friday and yellow for Saturday. I did it without thinking but then I start analyzing why I choose each color, it was interesting. I knew a Monday is one of those days when I feel slow and calm so that soft blue fitted perfectly, Fridays I just want to have fun, so pink totally explains everything.
When I analysed this simple thing, I realized how much color influences our lives. It’s a spot of color that remind us how we feel, and how I feel everyday makes me think about what kind of topic I will probably like to write about. Isn’t this amazing? So I wrote each topic at the bottom and voila! the first step for my blog calendar was done.
Making this calendar brought to mind how much I loved to decorate my notebooks with colored pencils in middle school. I used different colors to separate the notes for each class. I didn’t think about it at the time, but I was choosing each color to reflect how I felt about each class.
Have you ever thought about why you choose certain colors for certain activities? Do you use certain colors to organize your files or documents?
I would love to hear if you have ever thought about the same crazy things as me. –Xo, Elba
