You might be a hippie if……

So, you think you might be a hippie…..

Well, Let's see what the definition says.....


 or hippy
1.  a person, especially of the late 1960s,, who rejected established institutions and values and sought spontaneity, direct personal relations expressing love, and expanded consciousness, often expressed externally in the wearing of casual, folksy clothing and of beads, headbands, used garments, etc.
Let’s ponder this shall we?
  • a person, especially of the late 1960s:  I was born in the late 1960s but I don’t feel this is really key.  I believe there are hippies born every day.
  • who rejected established institutions and values:  One who doesn’t like rules that don’t make sense and rules that don’t embrace humanity.
  • sought spontaneity:  What do I feel like doing today or at this very moment?
  • direct personal relations expressing love:  Hippies love every one and expect everyone to love back.  They are heartbroken or disturbed by the cruel treatment of others.  This includes animals.
  • expanded consciousness: Aware of one’s own existence, sensations, thoughts, surroundings….a dreamer and a ponderer.
  • often expressed externally in the wearing of casual, folksy clothing and of beads, headbands, used garments, etc:   Let’s face it, we love thrift stores and fringe:)   

Here’s a FUN synonym….

  1. You have such a great list! Thanks for letting me know it’s okay to have unmatching socks–especially the fuzzy socks that my niece taught me! I still have a tape recorder, too! And so many other things.

  2. Did you know that if you stare at the sun for 15 minutes a day, that you won’t need to eat food anymore? You will literally gain superhuman abilities and feel like an enlightened person. Obviously you would need to stare at the sun during the early morning or late evening when the sun is at it’s lowest brightness. But NASA did a study and proved that people who engage in this sun-staring practice achieve a state of high spiritual and mental enlightenment. Full information here:
