Why stop at rose-colored glasses when you can have a rose-colored life?

Some try to see life through rose-colored glasses, while some fully embrace a rose-colored life.

Sometimes seeing the good in life can be hard. We miss how much God has truly blessed us and we get worn down, exhausted and the world can take on a tinge of grey instead.

These are the times when we need to take a step back and address what is making us unhappy, what is greying your rose-colored glasses, and redirect. Once you find what genuinely makes you happy, rock your rose-colored glasses loud and proud.

Or you can take it literally and order actual rose-colored glasses like I did.

And I didn't just stop at the glasses. Recently I took the plunge and decided to dye my hair a beautiful shade of rose gold. (A full blog post on that process is coming this weekend.) After getting this new do, I realized that it matched my new glasses perfectly – and we all know how much I LOVE monochromatic moments. I paired the look with some black wardrobe staples like mules, car coat, skinnies and handbag to make the rose color stand out.

Now with all these rose colors, it's hard to see any situation and anything but roses.
