Don’t waste time on jealousy…
I was reading Muddy Oxon/Bucks the other day (well, gotta keep up with the competition ; ) when up popped Baz Luhrmann’s Everybody’s Free To Wear Sunscreen and it reminded me of days gone by where I listened to this on continuous replay!
The advice fits today, as well as it did when I heard it way back when (1998 since you’re asking, and just embarking on my journalistic career)!
Everybody’s Free To Wear Sunscreen took me through some tough times, and although features the dulcet tones of Baz, the lyrics were not actually written by Lurhmann, but by Mary Schmich, a columnist with the Chicago Tribune back in 1997.
It’s brilliant advice whether you’re lacking confidence in your twenties (or know someone who is) or are struggling through your thirties, forties, or fifties. Like Hero over in Oxon/Bucks, I’m expecting that by sixty none of us will give a hoot and will be swearing innapropriately and wearing purple! Enjoy x
