The month of October had so many themed events. The stores were costumes were being sold were crowded almost every day of the week. It is amazing how many people get into the “spirit” of Halloween. We see on the telly streets where people have invested time and money decorating and producing gigantic themed sets around their homes. It is a competition on whether Halloween or the Xmas season brings out the creativity in the “set designers” in the communities.
Who do you want to be? How will you dress up for the party? Do you deviate from your regular look, or do stick pretty much to outfits that compliment your everyday persona? October is a month for adults/grown ups to really “play” at being someone else. I personally find it difficult to be anything other than the person I am. That said, I have many “sides” to my personality, certainly over the years, I’ve had opportunity to live out a number of my “passions” As a Taoist, I do not believe in labels, or limiting myself. I believe that in life we can be and do anything we set our minds to do. If we can’t do something it is because we have not motivated ourselves into wanting to do it. i.e. if you are a smoker, no one can make you stop smoking, it has to be something you yourself want to do, and act accordingly.
I recall in an early part of my life, being with someone who held me responsible for his bad moods or failure to enjoy himself. LOL you are right if you guessed that this person did not remain in my life for very long. It didn’t happen overnight, some times we are deaf, dumb and blind to our own circumstances. It is in living through the challenges we are given that we become more in tune with our own needs and wants.
Beauty is not about visual appearances, but rather in the kindness we show others, the sincerity of our actions, and the gift of appreciation we have for life itself.
Fall is a time of year when the world is full of colour. Let your light shine… be the “star” you are.
