The Wearing of the Hat...


At one time or another, we will all wear The Hat.

And it will change us...at least in the moment.  We will know we look ridiculous.  But wearing the hat says we don't care how we look to the world.  We don't care how we act when we wear the hat.

The Hat is about being out there and ridiculous and silly. The Hat is all about the rapture of the moment.

When you wear The Hat, you become the essential you- the fun you.  The happy, let-it-all-hang-out you.  One moment, you are self-conscious and unsure. ..

The next- you make the decision to don The Hat and all your self-doubt vanishes.  You are free to let go and release your inner wild child...

Yes, at one time or another, we will all wear The Hat.  And it will be good.  We will laugh and carry on.  We will remember that "Being Right" or "Keeping Up Appearances" is not so important in the grand scheme of things. 

We are only humans, doing the best we can to make our way in the world.  Laughter and foolishness are just as important, if not more so, than all of our well-meaning propriety.

Perhaps, with time, it won't take a hat.
