Each color represents a unique aspect of recovery. Jessica shared the color names and meaning behind them:
Bold and daring, this color embodies the strength and determination necessary for long-term recovery. It represents pushing boundaries, challenging ingrained beliefs, and finding the warrior within. “Radical Red” is a reminder that transformation often requires stepping outside of your comfort zone.
On the Brink Pink
This delicate shade of pink signifies the vulnerable phase at the beginning of the recovery journey. It represents the uncertainty and fear one may face when taking those initial steps towards healing. However, it also symbolizes hope, resilience, and the courage to confront the unknown.
Inner Beauty Pink
This shade represents reconnecting with our essence and embracing our unique qualities. It emphasizes the importance of self-love and acceptance, urging you to recognize the beauty that lies within you. This empowering color celebrates the strength found in embracing our individuality.
In the Nude Pink
This gentle shade symbolizes embracing vulnerability and authenticity. Recovery is about shedding the masks we wear and rediscovering our true selves. “In the Nude” encourages us to let go of societal expectations and embrace imperfections, finding beauty in our raw, unfiltered selves.
