Sunday Reflection: Self-Expression


Sunday Reflection: Self-Expression

I am passionate about promoting self-expression.  As a young girl, I discovered the importance of this when my parents decided to paint my room "Pepto" pink.  They reasoned that since pink is a "girl's" color, my room should be pink. I hated it.

It wasn't until we moved a few years later that I was able to put my stamp on my room. I suppose my parents thought that I was finally capable of making a color decision for myself. The freedom to create a room that reflected my style and taste transformed me. Unlike the pink room, I now wanted to spend time in my room. Being free to add my personal touch (I was a big fan of Pop Art), was hugely transforamative. It gave me a sense of pride, peace and contentment.  I created it.
