Do YoU kNoW wHaT cOloR yOu ArE?

I did it..i took the color code test ...and if you have as much time to waste as i do you will probably read my results :)
yellows need to look good socially, and friendships command a high priority in their lives. yellows are happy, articulate, engaging of others and crave adventure. Easily distracted, they can never sit still for long. They embrace each day in the "present tense" and choose people who, like themselves, enjoy a curious nature. yellows are charismatic, spontaneous, and positive; but can also be irresponsible, obnoxious, and forgetful. When you deal with a YELLOW, take a positive, upbeat approach and promote light-hearted, creative, and fun interactions. Yellows (Motive: Fun)
yellows are motivated by Fun. They are inviting and embrace life as a party that they're hosting. They love playful interaction and can be extremely sociable. They are highly persuasive and seek instant gratification. yellows need to be adored and praised. While yellows are carefree, they are sensitive and highly alert to others' agendas to control them. yellows typically carry within themselves the gift of a good heart
1. Do you consistently act true to behaviors associated with your yellow driving Core Motive?
This has to do with the level to which you value and accept yourself. Sometimes life, societal events, and/or our own biases can cause us to try to be someone we're not. For instance, being yellow and acting otherwise is like being a runner who was told they could run faster racing in cowboy boots than their running shoes. No matter how hard they tried, they would not be nearly as fast as they could be by using the proper gear. While this may seem like a far-fetched example, it's not too distant from the truth; when we act like something we're not, we can never get as far as we would if we first accepted ourselves for who we innately are and then began to work on personal improvement.
Success in life hinges upon accepting the truths in life, and acting accordingly. Wake up! Stop thinking that you are somehow special and therefore exempt from life's absolute truths. You can no more wish life to be different than a dreary traveler can wish away a mountain that may be impeding his or her path. It will never happen in this lifetime so give it up and accept that certain truths remain intact for every legitimate relationship.
One of those absolute truths is that we are NOT born equal. We have to realize that we all come in different packages and must learn to value the difference. Only humans find it necessary to compare themselves to others. It's great if you're using the comparison as a measure of what you could learn to do better or appreciate about what someone else brings to the relationship. All too often, however, that's not the case, and the comparison is forged out of insecurity and indelibly comes at someone's expense, including your own.
To confront the truth you must first face yourself. Your self-awareness is a critical component for seeing the truth and accepting its "absolute" nature in your life. Your ability to see yourself accurately requires an accurate self-assessment of your strengths and limitations as well as how they impact your life and the lives of those around you. Ironically, the more you like, value and accept yourself, the more willing you are to acknowledge your limitations as well as embracing your strengths.
More often than not, people do not see who you are inside, they see you for what you are on the outside-your work.
Doing your work is vital to getting over yourself because it entails accepting that being a yellow isn't necessarily the standard that everyone should seek to attain. You must develop the discipline to value the strengths of the other colors and seek to cultivate them yourself, if you want to achieve true success in life.
You are 100% Responsible for the Success of Your Relationships
To recap, you have learned that your motive came with you at birth, and that you personally are motivated by . You identified your innate strengths and limitations as a core yellow and evaluated your secondary motive traits as a red. You learned that to experience the most fulfilled life, and to embark on your journey of self-improvement, you must first become congruent with yourself by identifying and acting in harmony with your innate personality. You know that once you have mastered the concept of congruence, you are ready to move on to developing your character, or further developing strengths outside of your core yellow.
Keep in mind that self-improvement is a process, not an event, and takes time to master. With persistence, 100% responsibility, and assistance from those around you who care about you, you can soon walk the Charactered path and embrace more meaningful relationships. Best of luck to you on the journey of personal development, Amy, and congratulations for completing the first step!

Not gonna lie i don't like it...It is my least favorite holiday, Not because i'm against love but because i'm against stuffed animals and gross heart candy.I get this angry feeling in my heart when i see that they have put the Valentines stuff up after christmas, i despise those little gorillas who sing wil'thang, and those not so cute big bears with boxes of chocolates... but i guess i can't complain about everything about valentines day there are a few things i like ... Tradition is at our house that we wake up to pink milk and the smell of meatloaf for as long as i can remeber the one and only day that we ever eat meatloaf is on Valentines day in a heart shaped pan :) and our bed is always made with a valentine and some treat on our pillow when we come home... and also Valentines day means more production of chocolate and if you know me at all you know chocolate is my best friend chocolate always loves you back and is always there when you need it:) So it may be a little early to complain about this upcoming holiday but i'm just gearing up for it ... Then again i do have a bo to share it with so it may not be that bad this year just as long as i don't recieve any stuffed animal or a half heart necklace that says
" Best friends forever"

Just when you think there is no good in the world....

Darn snow! Ok actually I like the snow I am just not a good driver in it, I will be the first to admit that. I tend to freak out when my car starts sliding I don’t drive by barriers or semi’s because I always think I am going to crash into them, I have anxiety when I have to change lanes I stop a mile before any red light. the whole time I am driving I think of what I would do if I got stranded in a snow storm or how I would clean a wound from a car injury, I know I’m crazy. So I have done fairly well this winter except for last night driving home from my sisters house I made it from Farmington to south Ogden and then it was icy and I slipped a little then a little more and a little more until I was slid into a little snow pile off the side of the road. Not to far into it and no damage to me or my car but deep enough that I was stuck!and before I could even get out of my car there was a man at my window and I noticed three cars had pulled over to help me three strangers a girl my age a boy my age and a mid 30’s man they instantly started digging around my car I was amazed that these people would stop and be so willing to help me and they didn’t even judge me for wearing sweat pants a huge white puffy furry coat white socks and black slip on shoes smeared make-up hair slicked back no question, unfortunately my car was stuck but fortunately they had a rope that they tied to their truck and pulled me out. I wanted to pay them or give them something or do anything but all I could do was thank them and thank them and that’s all they would accept they all asked if I was ok and followed me almost all the way home, Maybe because I looked like a hobo and they wanted to make sure I had a home .Just when you think there isn’t good in the world people surprise you and have a heart. And are helpful to a complete stranger. I truly believe everyone has goodness in them it just shines more when they are put in a situation to shine. I probably will never see those people again but I learned a lot from them last night to be more giving to help those in need to not judge to thank my heavenly father for my safety and gratitude for kind people. (Oh p.s. if you read this don’t tell my mom she will think I am reckless lol)
