The inner princess

Pink was never my colour. When I was young, I believed I was too dark to carry it off, and by the time I hit my twenties, I declared war on it, because it was a “girlie” colour. Pink was what giggly girls wore, not sophisticated women out to change the world. And so it remained.

Till I started running, and discovered the princess in me. Running makes me feel strong, in control, and yet strangely feminine. I never feel more like I woman than I do when I’m running. Is that why my running wardrobe is almost all pink?

My little laptop is pink. I hate pink. But I was strangely attracted to it ... Maybe for a similar reason to yours? Makes me feel in control. I wonder whether pink has been analyzed in any way. Might google it! :o)

I was told by this shaman type once, that if I wanted more clients or agents publishers etc...to be magnetized to me, I needed to send out pink tendrils. I asked him why pink - and he said it is universally the most desirous colour. Yay! but I like orange - colour of insanity...

Fantastic! And you're so right. When I was a serious, Career Woman, I never wore pink. Now that I'm a mom, it's pink sparkles and glitter everywhere. And we love it! But we're also attracted to purple~ ;o)

Hey Rayna!

I reached your blog while randomly blog hopping. I don't know where I arrived from. But I do know that I am loving it here. I am enjoying reading your short but very thoughtful stories. :)

Am adding you to my blogroll. Will surely be back for more! Hope you don't mind!

Natasha - I love the way you describe how running makes you feel. How empowering! Perhaps that's why it makes you feel much like a woman. Yes, feminine, but strong and empowered, too. How wonderful!
