“I love to live my life as much as I can, and as colorful as I can.”
Get out there and do you. Do what makes you happy, do what you love, do what you’ve never thought possible. Surround yourself with beautiful things and people who bring good energy. Be bright, bold, and colourful to uplift your spirit. I mean, black has its place (your favourite LBD, of course) but we have been given the gift of a whole spectrum of colours. Embrace it, because to be “full of colour” means to be full of life.
