There are good days, and then there are bad days. Days that exhaust you and make you feel at your lowest. Where you beat yourself up and let scars scar. On those days, I crave my yellows to remind myself that I am a yellow too.
What’s yellow, you are thinking?
(This was one of the terms that I learned from my YouTube dictionary as a hashtag.)
Ideally, yellow is a person you love, you label it as the person being your yellow. It’s inspired by the “Yellow” song by Coldplay.
“I swam across
I jumped across for you
Oh, what a thing to do
‘Cause you were all yellow”
But the word has so many layers. Maybe today I m in one of those writing and introspective moods that I am here to put my chaotic thoughts into paper.
My first thought was why did they insinuate it with the colour yellow ??
Is it because it symbolises sunshine? Or warmth or a mixture of both.
Google had no answer and I realised it was open to interpretation.
So for the time being the definition for me right now for yellow is you. You are my yellow.
Because the impact that my yellows had on my life is significant because they made me a better person to be in a better place. So I want to thank them in my way, ie, by writing.
The yellows in my life, the friendships we have, are like vibrant colours that add beauty and purpose to my existence. They are like the indelible stains on my life, stains a reminder of things that I am grateful and lucky to have.
Among the kaleidoscope of friendships, I am blessed to have a friend who embodies being my yellow.
So today, it’s a yellow day, a celebration of being yellow, for having a yellow and the profound impact.
The light of positivity
You, my yellow, is a light of positivity, a bundle of joy even when you don’t feel like that. You have ounces of optimism inside you, even when you think you are pessimistic, it shines through you. You help me to find my silver lining and pull me out of my shadows. On the days I beat myself up, you remind me that the sun will rise tomorrow again and with it, new opportunities will come for you and you will find your spark again.
The warmth of my empathy.
You, my yellow, have an abundance of empathy. You have an innate ability to understand and share in my joys and sorrows, you being my safe space. Your compassion and no- judgement attitude has bought me comfort and also taught me to be there for others when in need.
The energy of adventure
On so many days, I would be just snuck inside my blanket reading, if it wasn’t for you. Your adventurous spirit is honestly contagious and I m not complaining. Exploring uncharted territories, trying out new hobbies, and your zest for life, you have motivated me to step out of my comfort zone.
The glow of support
Support is such a small word but it means the world to people. You bring that glow to my life, my support system.
How can someone provide such unwavering support? You believe in me, even when I don’t, you remind me to stop doing swot analysis and Focus on strengths and opportunities and work on my weaknesses while not being a threat to myself.
You help me to reach new heights and you are my cheerleader. Yes I do vision you wearing short skirts and carrying pompoms and dancing for me .
The beauty of authenticity.
You are unapologetically authentic, and effortlessly flawless in my eyes. And , no one can take that away from you. In the world of Barbie dolls , I am in awe of the person that you are, that sometimes ,i feel like you are A AI clone impersonating human like behaviour , that it scares me . But on most days I m grateful , grateful to see your authentic raw real self. I like honest people. And you top my list .
Why am I writing this? To celebrate your uniqueness. In a world that encourages conformity, you remind me to let my true colours shine.
You have your flaws too and I, sometimes, am fueled to murder you ,but you illuminate my soul. You have taught me more lessons than my school textbooks. You are my sunshine. So today let me be yours. I hope I brighten your day because, in the dictionary of life, I m very fortunate to have you as my yellow, my friend and I hopefully will love you forever.
So, my fellow human being. You are yellow too !! At least my yellow because you bring joy to my life.
What motivated me to write this?
This week has been chaotic for me, I am still adjusting and somehow, I didn’t find time to write.
Because of so many changes, I have been overwhelmed and I started to overthink. Not a good signnn!!!
And someone had to remind me that I m a yellow in their life.
Sometimes the simplest things said in the simple ways open up your heart in so many ways.
So this is an attempt to do that.
A simple writeup of me telling that you are yellow to me, to lift you on days when you beat yourself up !!
I will always be there for you through my writings.
So hang in there, my yellow 💛
Love you 3000
Sending lots of love hugs and positivity
