What Color is My Life?

March 20, 2009 - Theresa Proudfit

Welcome to my first Blog. I've been thinking for several hours what my blog should be about and I've even asked some friends for ideas.  Several people thought I should discuss the Bat cave project, a couple thought "living in Iron Mountain, the good and the bad", my cousin Tracy thought I should write about my dog, Thai Boo,  and a college friend thought I should discuss the AIG bonuses and the fact that Merrill Lynch's were much higher. All good ideas, but, I think blogging is for getting out whatever is weighing on your mind. Well this may not be profound and maybe I'm wasting my very first blog ever discussing something trivial, but what is really driving me crazy everyday is "What color am I going to paint my bedroom". Ok, I know that sounds crazy, but seriously, it is apparently a really important question that could affect my chi or my chang or something. I was reading a book...and don't ask me which one because I'm reading like 5 right now...and some where it said something like "your bedroom is representative of your life".  So I look at my room, which is by far the darkest, dingiest, messiest room in the house and I'm like, What? So, after having a little fight with my cousin/roommate who I love very much, but is driving me crazy, (which is a whole other story all together),  I had a huge rush of adrenaline and starting pulling everything out of my bedroom. No really, EVERYTHING. My bedroom is in my dining room, which is really confusing my dog. I gutted the room. I even pulled up the old carpet and threw it in away and then I primed my previously brown wood panel walls and then went to sleep in my dining room. Which is very pretty. So every morning I wake up and walk into my old bedroom and look around hoping to get some kind of spiritual guidance. Like God has nothing better to do then decide the color of my room...but I sit and look around and think...this room really is representative of my life these days. I've been getting rid of everything that isn't working for me and looking for what  it is I really want. So It seems to me if I can finish this project and decide the color of my bedroom I should have no problem deciding what I really want and need in my life. In the mean time I'm sleeping well in the dining room and retrieving Boo's toys from my bedroom and telling her don't worry, it's just temporary, mom will pick a color soon.
