Do your children take personal responsibility, are they independent thinkers, or do they have a tendency to movr with the flock?
Perhaps a sprinkling of purple thinking might encourage them to follow their own star.
A fun family day out, following the floats and Chertsey folk to their annual Black Cherry Fair, resulted in a rest back at Mum and Petes to recover from the heat and all the crap the kids had returned with. Sitting beneath their Wisteria arbor, I noticed the bees playing and collecting nectar, so decided to film them, whilst getting present to the purple and reflecting on what the colour may mean.
My Favourite Colour Is...
Do you have a colour that you are drawn to... Perhaps you use it in your work, business or play... How does it make you feel... Why do you like it?
My Dad has always encouraged my sister Kay and I to 'Think Purple', I thought it meant to be positive, until my sister an art therapist, wrote about it and I realised there was more to the colour than met the eye. She named her art studio in Australia 'Think Purple' and I've pasted snippets from her blog below.
Why Think Purple?
To ‘Think Purple’ means to live every moment in the perfect balance of joy, happiness and positivity. Living a life in this way is contagious and rubs off on the people we come into contact with on a daily basis.
The colour purple calls for creative doings and seeks inspiration and originality through its creative effort. It likes to be unique, individual and independent, not one of the crowd.
Purple is gender-less and contains just the right amount of masculine and feminine tones. It is a way of being and living in the moment.
Are you a Purple Thinker, perhaps you encourage your children to be independent, to lead themselves, take personal responsibility and to not always follow the crowds too? Always easier to do when we are clear about who we are and have clarity around our family values and vision.
Look forward to reading your colourful comments.
