In a world that positions itself as a lover of depressing colours and bleak outlooks, we always have an inner desire to view the colourful potential of our world. Even the most depressed designers will want to add splashes of rainbow to their creations as some point, or a writer of bleak fiction might want to sneak in a chapter at the end where the characters fortunes finally turn around for the better.
We walk around like we love black, we hold our heads down and bump into each other every so often. These bumps are our minds subconsciously begging for us to all live more colourful lives. We should always be trying to find a way to add even a little more colour into our lives, in order to be happier. To maybe find a way to add pigment into our cheeks and excitement into our adventures. Maybe the reason why we all just feeling like life is passing us by is because maybe we are letting it. We are excepting that the boring things we wear are just what we have to wear, the bleak fiction is what we have to read and the boring buildings on grey streets are just what we have been given to live in. This is the mindset I would name The Boring Grey and black sheep mindset. It’s the mindset most people have found themselves to be in on a rollercoaster of life that never stops, slows down or lets them get off.
There are those who live life to the fullest though. They don’t care what judgments other people give or whether it’s the normal thing to do. From the moment they get up in the morning they make a choice to live a life in colour, rather than in black and white. And happiness is just the start for these people. They live in a mindset that I like to call The Coloured Pebble Mindset. It’s simple really, and it’s something that can be done both mentally and physically if you so possess. You can imagine or to make it a more rewarding and renewing exercise, you can purchase and paint some pebbles in many different colours and put them in a basket or container. Then, you live your life as normal, but when you come to a choice, a junction in life where you would normally just do what everyone else is doing, getting on the never ending rollercoaster. You stop yourself and you just get into that coloured pebble mindset of adding that little bit of colour into your life every time. Then, you can reward yourself by adding a coloured pebble into another basket. Every time you do something that you would consider a deviation from the norm, you can reward yourself for being in the mindset where you can live your life as you have always wanted to. You can see your reward coloured pebble basket fill up day by day and the other basket empty slowly. Like a perfect metaphor for you leaving your boring ordinary life behind. Try it, and tell me all about it.
