Pink Pineapple Perspectives on Organizing

What do you think of when you see the color pink? Baby girl clothes, perhaps? Cotton candy? Maybe pink carnations, Pink Pearl erasers, the Pink Panther, pink lemonade, strawberry ice cream, pink grapefruit, or pink Cadillacs?

Now there's a new pink in town...the pink pineapple.

Yes, Del Monte has recently engineered, and the USDA has approved, a pink pineapple that includes lycopene... the same antioxidant compound that gives tomatoes their red color and may have a role in preventing cancer.

I haven't seen one in person yet, but I'm betting it will be showing up in my supermarket one of these days. Maybe it has already made it to yours?

I have a pretty good feeling it will sell...because it's different, new, pretty, and unexpected.

When it comes to getting and staying organized, sometimes it helps to let go of the 'same old-same old' and try something different, new, pretty, and/or unexpected.

Different: Let's say you're always running late for your appointments. If you don't do something to change that, chances are, you'll be late for every appointment you have. But if you use a different system like loosening up your schedule a bit so it's not so hectic, making use of an alarm on your phone alerting you when it's time to leave, and/or adding more padding-time in between your TO DOs and appointments, you now have the opportunity to be on time, and maybe even early for future appointments.

New: Maybe you've been using a sewing machine that's been on the brink of collapse for years. Perhaps your cell phone's battery doesn't last nearly as long as it used to. Have your knives become so dull that it's becoming downright dangerous to cut veggies for dinner. Every now and then, 'bite the bullet' and trade in something old for something new, especially if that new item is going to help you be more productive, efficient, or otherwise benefit you in some way.

Pretty: Some people can organize their belongings into cardboard boxes or pre-used file folders and be perfectly happy doing so...and that's great. Others become and stay more organized when they are using organizing items and tools that they find pretty...perhaps unique woven baskets, fancy notebooks, or even pink file folders. If you consider 'visual appeal' to be a big factor in your life, opting for 'pretty' when it comes to organizing can actually help you be better organized...because you'll 'want' to utilize it more.

Unexpected: Just because pineapples are normally yellow, apparently doesn't mean they can't be pink. In the same sense, just because some things are meant for one purpose, doesn't mean they can't be used for ice cube trays for sorting earrings, shower hooks for hanging purses in your bedroom closet, old ladders upcycled into book cases, fruit baskets for organizing hair accessories, and using daily planners for inspirational journaling rather than for keeping appointments. Seek out the may be a wonderful way to spark your creativity and keep you inspired.

Whether it's yellow or pink, the pineapple is recognized as a traditional expression of 'welcome.' Use today's pineapple perspectives as mental reminders of welcoming 'different, new, pretty, and/or unexpected' into your life...and seek to always find new possibilities that can make life sweeter!
