Unfiltered …

My favorite color is pink. It always has been, ever since I was a little girl. If something comes in pink, I choose that one. I’ve owned a pink bowling ball, pink golf clubs and pink pepper spray. If you can think it, I’ve probably owned it in pink. HA!

Early this morning I stumbled across some pink landscape photographs. I was instantly drawn to the color. Then I had to “google”. Of course none of the pictures were real. Don’t worry, I knew this going into my google search. PHEW. I was just curious about what the pictures looked like in their original forms. They were stunning! And this really got me thinking. Probably too deeply, about life.

I try to live an honest life. I will tell you how IT is. If I feel a certain way, you will know. If I like something, you will know. If I don’t, you will know. If I’m sad or frustrated, you will know. And when I’m happy and overjoyed, you will know. I’m simple like that. And I’m pretty sure I’ve been this way my whole life. The effort to hide or fake my life never appealed to me. It also sounded exhausting. Like SUPER exhausting! This blog and the one I originally started on Facebook came out of all that. Being real. And still being happy and hopeful in that REALNESS no matter how yucky it may get. Maybe being “matter-of-fact” and “head in the clouds” isn’t a combination that works for others. But it’s worked for me this long, so I guess I’ll stick with it … and secretly keep hoping that someone discovers a real pink forest.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you live unfiltered!!!
