Grey is the New Hot Pink
Hot Pink is flashy and fun. Hot Pink is never boring. But the same goes for Grey now. Who would have thought?
When we are in the middle of a struggle or a decision, often times we think in terms of Black and White, all or nothing, this or that. When you sit down and review the situation and you find that there is no solution, know that you are completely wrong. You are just black and white thinking. Grey is where the best ideas lie. Grey is where the spontaneity happens. Grey is where passion and excitement hide. Grey is the, “Ill meet you half way” point. Grey is Hot Pink.
If you want to hit the gym tonight, but you have a long day so you can’t, know that you are wrong. Working out doesn’t mean 60 minutes or 0; all or nothing. Working out could be a ten minute app on your phone that has you doing some crazy Siberian crunches for ten straight minutes. It counts. That’s the grey area. You can reach all of your goals every day, if you just rearrange some things and think outside of the circle.
We get so stuck on thinking and doing the same things the same way for so long, that we forget that there are so many other ways to achieve or make decisions. When you think differently, you open more doors for opportunity, doors you can’t even fathom right now because you just don’t know about them yet.
If you are unhappy, stop focusing on what is going wrong and start focusing on the Grey in your life.
This week’s challenge is to identify a situation where you feel stuck and think in the middle of the black and white spectrum, into the shades of Grey.
This week remember that Grey has never been so exciting!
