The Color Pink

I am not a big fan of the color pink.
Too girly, too sweet, too feminine.
This color makes me think of fanatic girls jumping up and down over a hot guy.
Giggling, donning the latest fashion and flashy girly stuffs.
It reminds me of someone like Paris Hilton.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate them.
I’m just not like them. So, I can’t relate. LOL!
Now this just reminded me of High School.
My high school isn’t the greatest you would ever hear of.
I was perceived as the shy, introvert or sometimes the odd one.
All because I can’t relate.
All because I am not into this “who’s your crush?” thing.
Because I’m not the richest, not the smartest, not the prettiest and so on.
But oh, they do remember my existence in art classes.
I wanted to feel like I ‘belong’ badly.
To be with the like-minded people.
It didn’t make sense.
But hey, I have great friends back then so it’s not that bad.
I enjoyed my HS life with my few but great and supportive friends.
I gotta thank them for that! πŸ˜€
But now, it all looks clear.
I am not meant to force myself to belong to a crowd I don’t fit in.
I guess we all become better as we grow older if we choose to be.
That’s how I embraced the idea of growing old with grace.
I realized that with age you will understand more things you previously don’t know.
If I would be asked if I like to go back to my previous self,
I won’t go.
The ‘me’ now is more flexibe,
The ‘me’ now understands the value of being true to myself,
I have committed myself to embrace the years of wisdom to come
The next years that will come to my life.
I won’t fear the aging process.
Although I am only at my mid 20’s,
who knows what the next years would bring?
Perhaps I might consider wearing something pink by then?

Okay…that’s just a piece of me today.
I just gotta say you are naturally wonderful and aging won’t take that away.
Let age enhance your real beauty inside.
A rose do wilt but the memories it bring may last forever.
Have a great great day! πŸ˜€

  1. Dearest Mel–you’ve grasped a big piece of wisdom early in life, good for you!! I can tell you that although my youthful beauty is Long Gone, I am happier, more peaceful, and have a lot of ageless inner beauty now that I’m about to turn 60. My prayer is that you’ll live and enjoy every “age” of your life, and continue to be true to yourself. God bless you and speak to you this day, and always. love, Caddo


    1. Seriously, you’re about to turn 60? I am shocked to know that. You don’t look like you are going 60 now. >,<
      I thought you are just 40 something. I guess your inner beauty is the one responsible for that! πŸ˜€
      Bless yah! – Mel


  2. I can completely relate to feeling like an oddball in high school, and even years later as an adult I’m still the oddball. But I’d rather be different than be a clone.

    I feel that pink is a lovely color, but I’m not a fan of the screaming fangirls either. Where are your brains, girls?! LOL

    This is such a beautiful drawing. Love it.


    1. Thanks Dienna! I kinda find the screaming a little amusing to watch, it’s just that I won’t participate on it. LOL!
      And, being an oddball isn’t really a bad thing, that what you call “originality”… LOL! πŸ˜€


  3. hey mel! I could extremely relate to this!! hahha.. And im pretty sure that Im one of those ” few great and supportive friends” that you are referring of. Some said they had the best moments during their HS life, but not for us. Who cares anyway? We’re happy on our own crazy way..=)


    1. Haha, yes you are! πŸ˜€
      Our HS life is certainly aint the best but we do enjoyed it waaay differently right? Too bad you and the others aren’t my classmate in 4th year, I would have enjoyed my whole 4th year better! My 3rd year in HS is the best I couldn’t care less about everyone else. πŸ˜€
