Here I go again.
I. Post. Nothing.
Can anyone relate?
A favorite blogger who shall remain nameless has suggested that maybe, just maybe, I'm something of a perfectionist. Though that would probably surprise the dust bunnies living under my bed, she's not completely out in left field, only instead of a straight-up perfectionist, I'm more of what you call an extremist.
As colors go, I'm more of a passionate red, bright yellow, or hot pink. My neutrals are either black or white.
It's sad but true. In Debbie Land, it's either freezing or boiling. (Feel free to take that comment literally, by the way.)
I'm either Richard Simmons or Henry the VIII.
Sue Ann or Roseanne
Don't you think there's some space in between?
Yeah, I think so too.
This year, I'm going to figure out a way to embrace more of it.
I'm not just doing it for myself, either. If you think it's frustrating for me, imagine being married to a pendulum for 30 years. Therefore, for the sake of all concerned, I have decided to put my focus this year on the practice of moderation. Life doesn't have to be an all or nothing life, after all. It just needs some healthy balance.
That's why balance is my word of the year. And the color I picked to go along with it?
Taupe, on the other hand, has just enough depth to distinguish it from the creams of the world. Taupe has a personality; it's just a quiet one. It works and plays well with others, too. It can be both a neutral and a pop of color. Oh sure, it doesn't pop like red, but who says a pop of color has to scream at you? Why can't it just sort of converse?
That's what taupe is to me, a warm and conversational kind of color, not too loud, but with enough hue to keep it from being bland. Taupe is a color with perfect balance, and that's why it's my 2014 color of the year.
And now that I've finally spilled the beans, I can get around to visiting.
Yes, I'm oddball enough to admit that I was afraid to read blogs lest someone choose the word first and think I was a big, old, copycat.
So... even if you've already blogged it:
What's your goal for 2014?
Inquiring minds want to know.
