Frangipani Yellow

Frangipani

Do you ever stop and think about how color affects your moods?  

I have a fascination with color and it's effect on our psyche.  I know that color has a profound affect on me and I'm always amazed at how at certain times in my life I am drawn to certain colors.

  I have a lot of books on color theory and the psychology of color, and I recently came across a link on Facebook that addressed just this topic.  So I refreshed my understanding of color and decided to use it to transform my mood.

Yellow is my go-to color today.  According to PositiveMed.com..."Yellow shines with optimism, enlightenment, and happiness."  Just what I need right now.

The same can be said for light.  Sunlight is so uplifting and energizing. I know I am solar powered and when I feel drained and depleted, a good does of sunshine always does wonders.

The frangipani is a remarkable flower of the tropics that reflects both color and warmth.  Much of northern Australia is littered with these exquisite flowers and their perfume is intoxicating.  The frangipani holds many memories and associations for me.  Some of my happiest times living in Sydney were sprinkled with the scent of the frangipani tree, so when I need uplifting, this is my flower of choice.

Thanks for checking in. xx
