The Color of Pink is Hope





Message of Pink Power



If anyone is living a normal life today, we are not doing what we need to do to save lives in this state. - Govenor Jay Inslee, Washington State


Wherever you reside on this great planet, we are all being tested mentally and many physically with the deadly COVID 19 virsus.  The daily briefings and news is filled with the latest deaths and statistics.   It is possible to become overwhelmed and perhaps feeling useless in not being able to help.  Of course, you can give money but that is not the same as being on the front-lines.  Our nurses, doctors, health care workers and first responders are indeed blessed by God for working diligently around the clock fighting this horrific virus.  We are all truly grateful for their tireless care.  They know that they will contract the virus and yet they carry on vigilantly.  Our only hope is that the vaccine will become available sooner versus later.  In the meantime, trying out the malaria drug, hydroxychloroquine combined with the Z-pack, Azithromycin in New York on patients, starting Tuesday, March 24th, may halt the virus and save lives.   Time will tell. 

My state, Washington State, is on lockdown beginning tonight, March 25th until April 6th.  This means we can go to the grocery store, pharmacy, walks or bike riding while keeping a 6 ft apart.  Many other states such as NY, California, New Jersey etc. are on lockdown while others are following the mandatory guidelines in place.  The virus no matter where you live moves quickly, stealthy and those that are elderly or have compromised immune systems will struggle mightily.


What Can We Do?  What about Pink? 






The hue of pink is making a dramatic comeback this Spring.  Perhaps because it is a hue that symbolizes hope, strength and love.   This is what we need now more than ever.  Pink power to act as a team, work together and follow the rules for how long it takes to flatten the curve.  We are not the first people on this planet that had to dramatically change our lives for a period of time. Wars, natural disasters and pandemics have been apart of the earth forever.   We adapt, we move forward and we comply for the good of the whole.

It is disheartening to listen or read negative messaging spewed on social media or in the press.  The impressions are wasteful, often divisive and reckless especially when  people are very sick and suffering.  What difference does it make by being mean, judgmental and pontificating from your home.  Are you on the front-line? Why not build a community of positive verbiage about unifying one another.

Additionally, it seems that some are less informed.  New information is available everyday at the press conferences from the doctors and leaders in our country.  Govenor Cuomo of New York on daily always has the latest information for New York plus added positive statements about strength, unity, fighting together and beating the virus.   Why not watch or listen?  It can't hurt to be knowledge rather than putting your head in the sand. There is only person you are hurting - yourself.   Be informed. Be a leader.  Be a team builder.


"I am an optimist. It does not seem to be much use being anything else." Winston Churchill



    




I have friends who are sewing masks and spreading positive vibes through calling or texting while keeping themselves busy.  For instance, cleaning out your drawers, files or rearranging a living space can be rewarding. It is a fresh start as we wait out the days from our humble abodes.

Celebrities Making Us Smile



How about celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres who is calling other celebrities daily and entertaining us from her living room with her cat sometimes snuggled on the coach. Jennifer Garner is fun to watch with her "pretend" cooking show as she follows a recipe and creates something yummy for her family.  She could not eat the English muffins because she is in an upcoming movie and watching carbohydrates. She really wanted too.  I am not sure I would have had her will power.  Garner just like us is making something for others and not herself.  Mark Walhberg trying to learn a dance with his wife and child.  Funny.  Arnold Schwarzenegger can be seen with his two ponies Whiskey and Lulu which has me in stitches. Seriously, the ponies are allowed in your house?  Bottom line, many are taking the marching orders about staying home seriously and figuring out how to survive with humor, hope and love.

Wear Pink for Hope!



    


My path is communication through writing and speaking.  I am a staunch believer in the art of communication with the goal of creating a positive effect on others.   The power of pink is hope.  What if we all started wearing pink several times a week to signal hope?  Maybe you have a pink cross-body handbag that your carry around?  Or a cozy precious pink sweater matched with pink earrings that you wear while working from you home.  The sparkle of pink will bring happiness and remind you that this too will pass.  The sun will come out, our lives will be restored and there will be hope for a new and revitalized future.  In the meantime, put on some pink, walk with pride, play with your kids, pray for the sick and keep strong.  We can do this together as one. United with pink pride or in our minds a clear mantra for positive hope and the betterment of our society and ourselves.  Pink is hope this spring.

Tee-Shirts - Rag & Bone

  Ultimate Comfort "The tans will fade but the memories will last forever."  Town & Country Summer is coming.   You can feel it especially now with the sunshine filling the land in the Pacific Northwest.  The mornings are crisp with afternoons that are warm with a slight breeze.  The blue skies combined with the yellow daffodils, pink magnolia blossoms, flowers appearing, green trees, snow covered mountains and endless green growth is magnificent.  The eye is endless entertained, and the balm of the sun soothes the weary after months of rain, sleet, hail, snow and cold.  Soon we will be storing our cashmere sweaters and pulling out simple tee-shirts, shorts, bathing suits, hats and sunscreen. Overall, it is a happy time especially this year now more than ever.  We can finally breathe a sigh of relief.   While we are embracing the long awaited change, I have found the perfect tee-shirt for the Summer months to come. Rag & Bone is the answer once again. The quality of t

Red Bathing Suits

  Lady in Red Elizabeth Taylor - Pixabay "When in doubt, wear red." Bill Blass Red is the color of passion, danger, anger and ultimately love.  It is a hue that stands out in a crowd, commands attention, and flatters the owner.  Think of fashionistas sporting a red dress in film or in the real world.  Heads turn, smiles happen, and the world stops for a moment.  Red is the color that truly makes an entrance.  Finding the correct red can be daunting.  If you have light, creamy skin with a pink cast, often a blue red is best.  If your skin is olive shade with a yellow undertone, then an orange red is your choice.  This handy chart by RITO designer knitwear can help identify your personal color of red.  Now the fun begins.  Once you have your color wheel done, you can then choose a delightful red hue from lipsticks, apparel and yes for a bathing suit.  The next mission is finding a red bathing suit, which often is difficult.  One would believe that a red bathing suit would be av

Rag & Bone Sweaters

  Winter Sale Pixabay - No Attribution Required We live for sales these days!  Do we not?  Getting a deal on well made, designed clothing with a percent off. What more can we ask for? Currently, there are fantastic price decreases on one of my favorite brands, Rag and Bone.  During the winter months, and even in early Spring and Fall, there is nothing better than a warm cashmere sweater to drape yourself in against the chill.   Of course, I must recommend purchasing a sweater in a classic shape that is timeless rather than on trend.  Classic or Trendy?  Which brings up a good point?  There are always new trends for us to partake each season.  For instance, flared jeans are making a strong comeback.  Whereas skinny jeans remain front and foremost.  A skinny, cigarette or straight leg jean can be worn for years rather than with a flared hem. Another trend hitting the airwaves are loose trouser pants, which in my fashion opinion are reminiscent of pajamas.  If you are going to buy pants,

Jeans for Spring 2021

  Vi br ant Hues Pixabay - No Attribution Required The sun is out, birds are singing, and Spring is here.  I spent the day in the yard cutting back plants, grasses, and ferns in preparation for the new, glorious, and riotous growth.   The bounty is always stunning with an array of colors.  Later in the Spring, I will fill my pots with hues that add to the d├ęcor of the backyard and deck.  Yes, Jeans Please? What does this have to do with jeans in rainbow tones?  Well, the world is filled with beauty.  You must look for it and when you do sigh with delight.  Recently, my favorite celebrity diva, Suzanne Somers, was wearing and rocking skinny orange jeans with black pumps on one of her weekly Facebook videos.  Which, of course, were stunning on her.  Orange jeans are the perfect signal that springtime has officially arrived.   Of course, she is in desert and it is a bit warmer.  However, our day in the heat, will soon be here in the Pacific Northwest.  Right now, is the moment, to pull o
