Colours and Kettles

As the sun filtered through the curtains this morning casting a rainbow of colours through my hanging crystal, I suddenly realised just how much colours always make me smile and lift my spirits. When I’m at work I always write in different colour pens, never the standard blue or boring black for me. Fluorescent greens, bright pink, mystical purple, turquoise blue to name a few. My notebook is a myriad of life and vibrance, even thought the words are serious and demanding creating tasks to be fulfilled with deadlines.

When I first moved in to my new home the decision of ‘what colour did I want the walls, bathroom and which light fittings do I choose’ swirled around my head every day. You can imagine my delight when I finally turned the hall light on when I saw all the reflective patterns on the walls which made rainbow patterns on my bed.

Many years ago to my father’s horror I bought a bright orange car and decorated it with swirly patterns which I thought was classy… probably not.  My dinghy is banana yellow with a cerise flag on top of the mast, at one point in my life I had purple hair to the disgust of the other mothers in the playground.

I really think that during the past days of the HH I have realised that there are more things I think and do that raise my spirits in ways I had nor realised or forgotten.

Finally after weeks of cursing a broken kettle lid I bought a new one… and guess what, it lights up in five different colours as it boils.

About the Author:

"Hi I’m Dena. I have worked in the same company for many years in a variety of roles and am now in a dual role of health and safety and assistant to the company secretary. I have been interested in holistic therapies for many years, and as I am qualified to practise in a few, it would be good to re-engage again with the calm and balance that they bring, and of course to increase my everyday Happyness! When I saw on Sally’s email asking for Happynesshubbers I thought what a good idea, but knowing me thought that I wouldn’t be able to commit to looking at all the emails for three weeks and finding time to go online and blog as I haven’t done it before. I know it only takes a few moments of the day, as I did dip in and out last time, and enjoyed the ones I looked at. My son is Paul, another Happynesshub Hero, and he asked me about becoming a Happynesshub Hero too – I surprised myself when I said yes! I’m excited to have the possibility of committing to start this exciting journey and make it part of my everyday life."
