The Tuesday Two © – June 6 2023

  1. Dream – Dream big, dream small, but dream.  What is something you are dreaming about doing? I am dreaming of going to Greece.  The white buildings with blue roofs, the Mediterranean food, the wine.  I turn 60 in 2025, we have begun the planning for the trip to Greece.  It’s a big dream but it has been my dream for 25 years.  And now that the planning has started, it gives me something to look forward to.  Having something to look forward to can help our mental wellbeing.A small dream for me is to have all my family together.  With one living on a different continent and one in another province, it is not always easy to make those arrangements.  Family time is important to me and a big part of what I need to fill my cup is time with my kids and grandkids.
  2. Colour – Do certain colours resonate with you?  Do you know what colour resonates with me?  Have we met?  Have you seen my picture? “Color is a powerful communication tool and can be used to signal action, influence mood, and even influence physiological reactions. Certain colors have been associated with physiological changes, including increased blood pressure, increased metabolism, and eyestrain.” From the article Colour Psychology : Does it affect how you feel? For me the answer is yes colour affects me.  I feel the best when I am wearing blue and awful if wearing red.  But today I met someone who rocked a red dress (so I told her that – always look for opportunities to compliment others).  What colour resonates with you?
