So here is my ultimate ‘Purple Hat’

I had a meeting to chat with the Glenda Moore the CEO of the Bryanston Organic Market about the exciting new developments with their on-line shopping portal.  While wandering around the market I came across GreenPunk’s stall. And there was the ultimate Purple Hat and memories of that fabulous tour through the different ages of a female came flooding back.  

Purple Hat (author seemingly unknown although attributed to Erma Bombeck)  

Age 3: She looks at herself and sees a Queen.

Age 8: She looks at herself and sees Cinderella.

Age 15: She looks at herself and sees an Ugly Sister (Mum I can’t go to school looking like this!)

Age 20: She looks at herself and sees “too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly”- but decides she’s going out anyway.

Age 30: She looks at herself and sees “too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly” – but decides she doesn’t have time to fix it, so she’s going out anyway.

Age 40: She looks at herself and sees “clean” and goes out anyway.

Age 50: She looks at herself and sees “I am” and goes wherever she wants to go.

Age 60: She looks at herself and reminds herself of all the people who can’t even see themselves in the mirror anymore. Goes out and conquers the world.

Age 70: She looks at herself & sees wisdom, laughter and ability, goes out and enjoys life.

Age 80: Doesn’t bother to look. Just puts on a purple hat and goes out to have fun with the world.

Maybe we should all grab that purple hat earlier. 

So …. here it is: my ultimate Purple Hat …
