We are a blending of all our life experiences…the more experiences we have, the more colorful our life. Embrace each color in your life. ~ Dr. Angela Kowitz Orobko
From the day we are born, we start experiencing life. Life experiences start from the moment we feel the cooler air that touches our warm body after being safe, secure, and tepid inside our mothers. One experience after another incorporate into our character as we learn how to react and behave to certain stimuli. Our personalities and characters start to evolve as we blend these experiences into our being.
We all experienced being born, but after that we start experiencing different foods, climates, smells, sounds, and sights. These experiences mold us. Embracing and appreciating these experiences allow each of us to be more joyful. The more experiences we have the more overlap we have with others who have had similar experiences. These similarities allow us to relate to each other. Furthermore, appreciating that others may have had similar and/or different experiences will allow us to develop more meaningful relationships with others, which can only serve to enrich our lives even more.
We paint who we are every day with our own set of colors. Like colors, we all have had the basic, primary experiences that everyone has had. As we grow and develop, the amount of different types of experience create different shades and hues of personalities. Those who do not wish to experience new things will have less depth and richness in their life’s portrait. Their lives will seem “flat, dull and grey”. Whereas, if you embrace as many new experiences as possible your life portrait will be more dimensional, vivacious, sanguine and robust. You can choose what you wish to experience in your life. How colorful is your life? What new experiences are you willing to try?
