Daily THOUGHT #47 "True Colors"

Tongue: The most POWERFUL instrument on the body!!!

Hello there my people! I hope that all is well with everyone. I know it's been a minute since I have been on here, trying to get school stuff situated has taken a bigger tole on me than I thought it would have. But, things are on the up and up now, so I will be back to my regularly scheduled, daily output of "The Scoop". There is so much to be talked about now, I pray that you are ready. I think it's about that time for me to start leaving it all on the table and let the world feast as they please!

Today I want to tell you about "True Colors". Well what do you mean Reggie? How can colors be fake or false rather? Well my fellow viewers, this is how. In society we find ways to give expressions with the use of words in different context from what it actually means, take for instance the words: hot, bad and dope. Now initially one would think hot as in temperature, bad as in opposite of good and dope as in the substance that gets people locked up and raises taxes to care for the jail and it's new occupants, even though this product is way less dangerous than our beloved and legal alcohol. But, that's for another day, anyways...These terms too, represent something totally different. Hot now becomes fly or trending, popular. Bad is good in this sense and dope only solidifies how awesome something is, usually during the initial reaction to finding something out. So there is opportunity for something to be different from what it actually is, or fake!

So what determines the truth of colors I guess is the next question someone would ask. "True Colors" is more like a phrase used to the describe the real personalities of an individual. What's actually on the inside versus what is displayed on the outside. The part that is most interesting to me is how colors are formed. We look at schools, organizations and professional teams, observing the selection of colors. This is very important, because this makes a statement. Colors have so much richness. Understanding the many variations would make your walk in life a lot easier.

I like to believe that the "True Colors" of an individual is made up based on surroundings, intelligence and self evaluation. Whether you know it or not, what you surround yourself with is what you normally become. The knowledge that you put in your brain will determine how much you are able to put out of your brain for the world to use and how you look at things makes the difference in working somewhere you dread and doing something that will be remembered even long after the day when you are gone from this place. It seems like so often, we take for granted the ability we have to analyze a situation or circumstance. Instead we allow the situation to control us and set us back from what we had planned to make happen.

What are your "True Colors"? Do you find yourself in a constant state of unhappiness or are you really living and enjoying life? Are you happy with the attention that you get from the people who truly care about you or are you doing everything that you can so someone can notice your presence? Are you really that warm hearted and welcoming to people or is that just what you do to gain fans? How we are should not even be measured by the observational judgement of our fellow man. Our presence should represent what we believe is the right and positive way to be.

Life is too short for our "True Colors" to change like mood rings. We have to understand what our inner personality is and learn to adapt according to each and every situation. I like to look at myself as somewhat of a chameleon. These amazing creatures have the ability to change the color of their bodies according to their surroundings. Imagine how much better the world would be if people were like that. Sure enough you are going to go places and be around people that you don't like. Why allow an already understood circumstance to pull you out of a comfort, happy and peaceful zone.Utilize this situation as a chance to prove that you can handle any obstacle before you and do it as graceful as the floating clouds.

We have an opportunity my people. We could be truthful to ourselves and the people around us. We could show who we truly are and because of the effort give respect to one another. We could recognize when we are out of place as well embrace when we should be involved. Examine the things around you today. See what you can find out about "True Colors". You all have a great week. It's on you!
