When Blue means Blue

There were choices to be made every day.  Simple ones like what to eat for breakfast or what to wear, coffee with sugar or sucrose.  Simple decisions.

Then came the big choice day.  The future makers showed me a selection of colours, each one representing where I would go in my life from then on.

There was not a door/window selection that didn’t appeal.  I liked the calm, cool lime green, the vibrant, fluorescent orange or the ripe, deep purple.

I liked the look of the blue.  There was a door and a window that showed shades of blue. The red around it just solidified my decision.

Little did I know that choosing blue, meant from that day forward I would be blue.  The red frame was a con making the blue seem brighter.

I was 46 years old when I begun this blog, female and married with a house full of cats (7). My past is littered with the impact of events that happened when I was a teen. Two loves of my life have been nursing and studying. I just completed my Master of Arts: Media Studies endorsement. My blog will be about the things I think about, that might be better served being written rather than squirreled away in my mind festering. It is the meanderings of my mind as I seek to define myself and my world.

      1. Yeah, I agree they can feel like that. And it’s hard to find help at times a person is depressed if you don’t already have a good psychiatrist or people who understand what you’re going through. Sometimes, it’s like the awful feeling of tiredness and horrible mood won’t go away. Yes, I know about depression 😦 sorry you were in a bad mood. But you still did a great job writing 🙂
