A Love Note to Women About “The Red Affect”
On Friday, February 7th, Crumley Roberts, along with many other businesses, will GO RED to raise awareness about issues regarding women’s heart health. The truth is that a vast majority of heart-related diseases could be prevented if we were willing to make just a few small changes in our lives that would add up to a very big difference in our overall health. There are always going to be things that we can’t prevent, but there are a few things we can prevent, and most forms of heart disease are among them.
You may wonder why we are so crazy about the color of red at Crumley Roberts. You see it in our Crumley Roberts Kids Zone, our Servant’s Heart Spirit Award and certainly in our Little Red Jumpsuit Tour and Foundation for Women. You also see it in our community partner, The Red Affect Boutique, that provides money for our Little Red Jumpsuit Foundation. The truth is that around here, red is not just a color – it’s a way of life, especially for us women.
Red is the color of love and of passion, but it also represents power, good luck, revolution and change. Every choice we have made, as women and as human beings, has helped bring us to where we are today, and it is never too late to celebrate those choices or to begin moving in a new direction. At Crumley Roberts, at The Red Affect Boutique and on The Little Red Jumpsuit Tour, “living in red” means continuing to move forward together on our journeys as women who bring so much joy to the lives of others and are secure in a life that is rich with passion and rooted in purpose. Only then, can we know and experience true joy in our own lives.
In the end, our lives are simply a collection of what we have shared with others and what we have allowed them to share with us.
My hope for you is that you will always:
keep moving forward,
walk in faith and not in fear,
share your story to inspire and help others,
accept help from others when you need it,
feel true passion for your life and for those who are a part of it,
recognize and celebrate your beauty and your worth,
see the best in yourself and others,
live your purpose, and
find and spread joy in the world around you.
My hope is that you will always continue to Live in Red! Once you have made that choice, you definitely will have been affected. Life is different - more passionate, more purposeful and more joyful. That is The Red Affect!
Happy Go Red Day and Happy Valentine’s Day!
Yours in Red,
Kimberly Sanders Roberts
