How Being A Purple-Passionista Feeds My Soul.

Being a purple passionista feeds my closet and my soul.

This may come as no surprise as it is fairly obvious looking at my business of Sleeping Naked After 40 in all it’s purple glory.

I really like the color purple.

I make a conscious intention to wear something purple everyday. Which happens to be quite doable while donning purple hair.

Why do I wear something purple everyday ?


It makes me feel good. (I even wore a purple velvet bling string thingie for my 53th birthday!) 

And feeling good is the whole idea.

Everything is about how you feel. When you feel good, you attract from that good feeling and more good things come to you. Like a magnet. You may have heard it called the law of attraction. The simple definition is that “like attracts like”.

Yes, I like to shop and yes I Iove gorgeous things, which may not be a surprise either.  After all, I have a product called the Purple Gorgeous Kit. 

To further my purple intrigue, during my social media hobnobbing, I happened upon an online store called THE PURPLE STORE.

Is there really such a thing as a purple store?


Yes. There really is a store called THE PURPLE STORE. Everything they sell is purple. They are quite passionate about it too.

I’m not alone in my feeling passionate about purple. These guys are more purple than me.

I just had to know and so I asked them.

Why would you open a purple store?

Daniel the store owner had this to say:

“Never conventional, The Purple Store went in the opposite of most businesses, starting online in 2004 and adding a Seattle storefront in 2011 which expanded to double the size last autumn. Initially sparked by a fateful conversation at a party, we have thrived over the last ten years (and counting!) thanks to the passion and enthusiasm of our customers. We’ve had customers from as far away as Australia and New Zealand plan stops just to shop purple. We simply wanted to live in a world where The Purple Store existed, and we’re fortunate and grateful that so many people have agreed!”


These guys are so passionate that they added The Purple Gorgeous Kit to their shelves. I could not be more excited about The Purple Store selling my product.

If you haven’t seen The Purple Gorgeous Kit, here it is. Everything you need all in one bag… to help you “be” gorgeous and feel amazing.

What does the color purple and passion have in common?

The point I share with you is that doing things, (that includes everything) that make up the moments of your life feel much better when you do them with passion.

I’m pretty store that Daniel is successful in his store because he oozes passion about it. His purpleness is contagious too. But it’s actually his passion for purple and how he chooses to share it that is the really contagious part.

You can have that for your life too.

When you do the things you love and the things that fire you up, you engage your passion. From this passion-filled place, your life feels amazing.

Combine the feeling of wearing a color you love and things that feel good to wear with a feeling of loving what you do and BAM…

Your life is off the charts awesome… 

You may find a substitute for purple if purple ain’t your thing. Find it! Find that color that makes you feel great.  But there is no substitute for passion.

Passion feeds your soul.

If you are not doing what you love, and loving what you do. STOP IT.

I can’t say it any more sweetly than that.


Choice 1: If you don’t love what you do everyday when you wake up, change what you do when you wake up. Be less interested in why you are stuck in a dead end job or position you don’t like, and begin focus on what you can do.


Choice 2: If you don’t love what you do everyday when you wake up, find a way to switch your perception and start to fall in love with where you are.

Both are life changing possibilities.

Pick one and DO IT.  

There is no other option for your LIFE. This is it ! This is your life. Right here and right now. Moment by moment by moment makes up your life.

Make purple passionate love to your life. Make purple passionate love be your life.

P.S. Leave a comment, I’d love to hear what you think about these questions.

Sit still for a moment and let yourSelf be quiet.  What do you hear?

Is there a color that makes you feel good when you wear it?

What is that thing you want to do but were always afraid of doing?

Love, Love, Love ya,
