I've learned a little something about myself since the new Pantone Color of the Year was announced.
I've learned that I'm easily swayed by subliminal messaging, apparently. I mean, really, while I'm not such a fan of this particular shade of green that I'll redecorate my house and live in a jungle of draperies and pillows, I find myself oddly comforted by greens, in general, these past several weeks. Not just comforted, but inexplicably drawn to them.
So, this is just a quick reminder that perhaps we shouldn't be so quick to dismiss what's "popular" or trending simply because (if you're like me) it's popular or trending. Yes... I know... that's an ugly truth to admit about myself, that I often turn my nose at convention, the expected, for fear that somehow lumps me in a common social core, and goodness forbid I call myself common!
But you know what? It's fine. It's not just fine. The expected and popular has merit and worth and sometimes we don't always have to be the trend-setter ourselves because, let's face it, I imagine that's exhausting! I'm happy to accept that I drank the Pantone kool-aid and I'm owning it! I'll ride these coat-tails for as long as I can this year, I think.
And really now, we can still be fabulous with the same color everyone else is sporting. Because it's all in how you wear it! I plan on going big, going bold, and falling into the graceful, natural grip of GREENERY.
Who's with me?
And also, who hates this color? Ha! I know it can't be that popular!
