I step inside the elevator and the silver-gilded doors close firmly behind me. I reach for the button to choose my floor and read the sign that has been placed above them: “Find Happiness.” Instead of the buttons indicating a floor, each one is in a different colour. Red, blue, green, orange and yellow.
What type of happiness would I choose for myself? Would I want a life filled with fiery red, with passion, and emotions that are extreme? Or one that has the energy of a fiery life, but the happiness that one associates with yellow. Would I prefer a life that is harmonious with nature, a life that is full of freshness and growth? Or one that is associated with the stability and depth of the sea.
My finger is drawn to the yellow button: a colour that, for me, represents joy and happiness. It is a colour that is filled with the energy of the sun, one that is bright and cheery. I would not want to experience the extreme passions of red, or even orange. Nor would I want to link my happiness with the colour of money.
I press on the yellow button and the elevator moves me to towards what I have chosen. The door opens and my life welcomes me. A life filled with freshness, joy, and the energy associated with light and the sun. I step towards it, welcoming the brightness.
Which colour button would you choose?
