Regina Brett's Fifty Life Lessons: The Twenty-Third Lesson

Lesson Number Twenty-Three: Be eccentric now.  Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

Whatever it is we want to do today, whether it be wearing purple, maroon or flowery printed dresses, let's wear it now. In the old times, those who used to wear purple dresses are the older ladies. Now time has changed. Why wait for us growing old when we can do it now?

 Our time is the time of the 'eccentrics'. Eccentric personality is already accepted now. Gone are the days of the conventional. Gone are the days of the self-righteous, older people. As long as what we are doing can make us happy, and no one is hurt by our achieving happiness and fulfillment, then go let us be happy and to things that can make us much happier. 

Now is the time to be free. So, why not celebrate this freedom. Let us set aside the thought of what others might think of our actions because it is not other people's thoughts that can make us happy. If we are truly happy, other people will feel that and they too, can benefit from our happiness. For we are all connected. No one can say no to happiness. Happiness is a light. When we have the light on our faces, no one is able to refrain away from it. This light inside us is contagious. When others see it, they are able to light the candles inside their souls and start passing that light to others. 

Why wait? Do it now. Start passing the light. Wear purple and be happy.

Get happy!
