A few years ago, on a dark and dreary Seattle winter morning, I reached into my sock drawer to pull out any pair of black socks. But instead I grabbed a pair of brightly colored striped socks, and my immediate reaction was to chuckle. And immediately I felt a touch of joy as I smiled.
I threw all my black socks away shortly after that day and began to amass a collection of boldly patterned socks. Dark ones, light ones , stripes, polka dots, pastels, All joyful...none are somber. And now I start every day with a smile. And a little exercise to determine which socks go with the shirt or sweater I've chosen to wear that day.
I have gifted striped socks to many colleagues and clients, and most of them agree that the fancy footwear adds a moment of joy to each day.
