The Color of Happy

The Color of Happy


I had one of those weeks where it seemed that the work would never end. Real estate, inside chores, outside chores, errands, maintenance, etc. I felt as though I was never was going to find time to sit back and enjoy the beautiful weather which is so fleeting here in Connecticut.


I looked around the yard and saw nothing but more work--painting the shed, mowing the lawn, weeding the garden, fixing the deck, etc. I was getting tired and feeling just a bit overwhelmed.

The Color of Happy


Then I decided that I needed a new umbrella for the deck, and I found this beautiful one in a color that just makes me happy. I put it up and instantly had a whole new outlook. Now instead of seeing all the work that needs to be done, I just see the color of happy.


What color makes you happy?

How true it is that sometimes something so simple can make you focus on what is good and take your maind off of what is overwhelming.  Love your positive post.

I am not sure if any specific color makes me happy...I am sort of a beige person! But then I am a sensitive person as well as friendly,,,soulful. I figured it out...rainbows make me happy!

Blue like the sky.  I was driving to work today and the sky was a beautiful blue.

Peggy I could have use something with the color of happy yesterday.  It was one of those days that you get one thing done and two new ones pop up.  Maybe I will borrow you umbrella next time :)

Peggy -- My umbrella is black and I need a new one. I should consider a 'happier' color like yours. I know what you mean about seeing nothing but work. I have been trying to take a break and there is always something popping up. Maybe I need to sneak out and do that umbrella shopping.

Hi Peggy and great choice as mine is pretty close to the same color. Everywhere I have looked here lately is just more work to be done but at my age I just relax and remember that it will be here tomorrow and I may not LOL

Love it Peggy! Love the lime green and have potted plants at our front walk all done up in lime this year.  Have to admit though, I go for yellow and didn't find it mellow until......I read Erv's comment and chart above! Anxious!!! He's probably right!
