Ever find yourself looking at the top right corner of your FB page and just saying happy birthday to whomever of your friends is listed for the day? I know I'm guilty! It's a social norm, an expectation, a "thing you do". Same with all the "Happy ________ Days" throughout the year. They are routine, a quick few keys so that you've fulfilled your obligation.
And as receivers of these wishes, we all know it's viewed in much the same way; you read who has sent you the message, smile, and then move on. It's a moment. But, have you ever really stopped to think about what you might actually want to say or how you hope the person's day is?
I would like to start a new tradition!!! How about sending the person a color!!! yes, a color! Something a little more descriptive and personal that takes more than a moment to absorb? I'm a visual person and I truly believe in the power of colors to enhance your mood, a situation, a relationship,.......a whole day!
So, here's the challenge......I am quickly approaching the next notch on the belt........so, instead of sending me a "Happy Birthday" send me a color, like:
Have a pretty in pink day!
Have a giggly green day!
Have a smiley yellow day!
I will, in turn, send you something entirely unique and uplifting and personal on your special day. Also, pass on this little tradition and we'll make those all important days that much brighter!!!!
