One of the wisest people we know is Ruby RedHat, our RHS mascot. Her adventures with Pink Pearl can be followed in our broadcasts. We hope that you are familiar with her famous “Top Ten Rules forLiving.” Red Hat Society Members don’t have many real rules, like Pirates, these rules are more like guidelines. If you don’t know about Rule #1, let us introduce you:
“Accept Reality and live in the here and now.”
When asked to elaborate on this rule, Ruby said: “We (Red and Pink Hatters) accept life, and people, as they are. When push comes to shove, we have to do that. The sooner we stop wasting our energy trying to change other people or inevitable circumstances, the sooner we can expend our strength on what we want to do with rest of our lives.
A large part of accepting reality is doing the best we can within the boundary of the day in which we are currently living. Among the things we can never change is our past. Ruby says there’s no point wasting valuable mental energy rehashing our personal histories, and she’s right!
So here’s to living in the present and enjoying life to the fullest! #RHSisSimplyFun
