I’ve never been a fan of the color pink. It most likely has something to do with being a red-head and having people tell me that the color would clash with my hair color and my skin tone. Some shades of pink look terrible on me, but some actually don’t…. not that I’ve been brave enough to really try it out.
Isn’t it strange how our belief’s from early childhood follow us around all our lives, whether they make any sense or not?
As I was thinking about it today, I realized it wasn’t just the color and the unpleasant childhood memories that had me disliking the color. I also have this weird belief that it’s a weak color. I’m one of those women who wants to run with the boys and do what they do and the color pink just makes me think of cute little coddled girls who have things handed to them.
See, not logical at all, but there you have it.
It also got me thinking of the brand PINK from Victoria’s Secret. I’ve never been a name brand kind of person, but about 10 years ago, I found myself shopping at Victoria’s Secret. I believe they have the most comfortable bras, so it is the one thing I will allow myself to splurge on; that and the amazing perfume I fell in love with.
I noticed a friend in a pair of sweats one day that looked really comfortable and she told me they were the PINK brand. I went out and bought a pair shortly after because I am so a sweats and tank top kind of girl. Now, I’m not the type of person to splash myself with PINK, but you see it everywhere with women these days. I honestly think it’s tacky. However, those sweat pants I bought have PINK written right across the butt. It’s probably a good thing I can’t see it because it allows me to forget that it’s there. They’re black and super comfortable, so I don’t ever remember until the hubby points it out.
I think it gives him great joy to watch me squirm.
I’ve just realized that this is the good (if it can be called that) and the bad of the color pink, brought to you by yours truly. I’m thinking I may need to create a better relationship with the color, but I’m getting old and set in my ways. Besides, I don’t think the color will mind.
