Until a few years ago, my sock repertoire consisted solely of black socks and white socks. That’s what you’re “supposed” to wear. Then, I decided that my life needed to move past the black/white sock mentality, and I started buying and wearing colorful socks. My favorite pairs are “mismatched,” purposely designed to be slightly out-of-sync from each other. Friends now ask to see which colors I’m wearing — it’s a brief, shared moment of connection which brings all of us smiles. So I’ve embraced it as a metaphor and a reflection of my inner soul: Life’s too short to wear boring socks — don’t be afraid to let your true colors shine!
