Yesterday, I decided to go all the way out, and wear a yellow dress to work and there seemed to be an automatic attraction to my outfit:
“Look at you bring in Spring!”
“You look like sunshine.”
“You must have somewhere to go after work!”
I loved everyone’s reaction! And my response started a conversation every time:
“Thank you! Well, you know it’s Endometriosis Awareness Month so I have to wear all my yellow.”
I would get a bewildered look at first, and then they would ask — So, what exactly is Endometriosis?
The step was perfect, and I was able to give my pitch about the one thing that affects my life is so many ways.
I would get the “ohhhh, so that explains it” look, and then something magical happened — people offered to join in my cause and wear yellow with me.
It warmed my heart it a way that they probably couldn’t understand, and now I am on a mission to keep the message going.
If you have asked yourself how you can support those during Endometriosis Awareness or if you have Endometriosis and you want to figure out how you can bring about awareness take a simple step –Wear yellow! I promise you will be surprised by how that simple thing can start amazing conversations this month.
