happy halloween friends!
i’ve never been a huge fan of halloween — not sure why, maybe it’s because i’m kinda over seeing girls try so hard to wear less and less clothing each year and expose their bodies (i think it’s sad how EVERYONE knows halloween is a time for girls to find THE sluttiest costume…gross ladies, let’s maintain SOME class?! it’s literally a running joke in society…isn’t that kind of sad that when someone says “Halloween” people automatically think “slutty women?!” i think it’s sad, but that’s just the feminist in me!) and halloween is just another excuse for people to forget who they are and drink too much, party too hard, and make stupid decisions…but despite all that, i decided to embrace the holiday and add a little spice to everyone’s lives and dressed up this morning for my bootcamp workout.
gotta admit, it can be fun to step out of your own skin for a bit and try something else on for size. let’s use that metaphor for our own lives…
what is it that you want to be or do that you aren’t being or doing? why don’t you try that mask on for a while? who do you want to be that you aren’t? put yourself out there. do something you’ve never done. be the change you wish to see. it takes guts to dress up on halloween…at least i think it does! what if you look like an idiot? what if no one really dresses up? what will they think? WHOOOO CARES!! own that costume and make everyone jealous that they aren’t as fun as you! 😉
And the same with our lives…what if we did that thing we’ve always wanted to do…and it doesn’t work? or we fail? or we don’t like it? or people judge me?
Take a chance. Do one thing a day that scares you. Make a positive change. LEAD your dreams, don’t follow them. If your dreams don’t scare you, maybe they aren’t big enough. Don’t live your life being afraid to fail.
So on this Hallow’s Eve, I leave you with this…November starts tomorrow, take a chance and do something positive and new. Add a healthy habit. Be kinder. Accomplish that goal you’ve always had in the back of your head. better yet, SET GOALS! and don’t be afraid to change for the better, let it change you and make you the person you’ve always dreamed of being!
Hope everyone enjoys their Halloween. Be safe and smart! Don’t eat too much candy!
