For years I have been wearing red shoes instead of ordinary black.
I have been wearing red sneakers, red high heels (despite my height), red lipstick, red jacket, red scarf, red hat.
Why? Not because I want to be visible. Oh, believe me, it is not the red clothes that make me visible in the eyes of others. I have been wearing this colour, because I love it. It is what makes me ME.
People say “You are to colourful”. I get that a lot, but in such moments I just smile and say “This is me. I am colourful and happy.” They can like me the way I am or they can just keep to their own grey road. I choose to be ME, I choose to be colourful, I choose to keep going my own path.
How about you? What makes you – YOU?
