I used to hate the color pink. I was so anti-pink. I think I was anti-pink because I didn’t want to be like all the other girls and follow the gender norm. I was more of a tom-boy and loved to play outside and get dirty. As I grew older I didn’t mind the color, I like to look girly. It wasn’t until high school though that I really embraced pink when I could. I loved to let people know I was a young woman. I liked the way it made me look and feel. When I had my daughter pink became my favorite color over the previous red. She had so much pink with a little bit of red and purple in the mix. Pink suited her when she was little. Now that she is growing, pink really isn’t “her” color anymore. I think the purples and the blues are her colors. She looks fantastic and gorgeous in those colors. Pink is also the color of ribbon for Breast Cancer awareness. Its perfect for that purpose. Pink universal for female and well, it is mostly females that end up with breast cancer. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. If you so feel it in your heart to donate to breast cancer awareness you can do so on the National Breast Cancer Foundation site.
I also had to include some more of these beautiful pink Japanese Sakura flowers because January and February were filled with them here in Okinawa, Japan. I just can’t get enough of their beauty.
