Written for:  Carpe Diem Theme Week #2 Color Your Life:  Yellow

Yellow is the brightest color the human eye can see. It means youth, as we can see in the variety of yellow flowers in spring. It gives you a feeling of joy and happiness. Yellow has to do with learning too, it resonates with the left (logical) side of the brain, therefore you can say that yellow is a male color. Yellow can give a boost to your creativity.

But … yellow has also a different side as I wrote above it’s the color of hate. Here are a few other ideas about the meaning of yellow:

The color yellow puts emotions aside, and thoughts comes from the head rather than from the heart. Yellow color meaning shows that it relies mostly on itself and prefers not to get emotionally involved. It relates to our ego, our self-confidence, how we see ourselves and how others see us.
If you are undergoing major changes in your life, you may find that you will not tolerate the color yellow very well – this will usually pass. It just means that you currently find it difficult to cope with all the new things in your life, and that yellow vibrates too fast for you, making you stressed. Add a little green or a soft orange color in your life for some time to restore your energy balance. It is worth mentioning that many older people do not respond well to large amounts of yellow, because the color vibrates too fast for them. (Source: color meanings)
