A Haloween Dilemma!

The beautiful thing about Halloween is that anyone can sport all kinds of attire, be seen in public, and not feel self-conscious about the fact that they are wearing something they would never dream of putting on in "regular life."

...It's like fantasy time.

Sure Halloween is when the ghouls and goblins come out, but it's much more than that. It's freedom of expression.

Every year, on October 31st, you can become any character you want and people will celebrate it.

For me it's a time when I get to share my love of playing dress-up with the world!  So here's your opportunity to participate in my personal Halloween dilemma

      ...what should Red be this year?

4_or_me I could be the Pirate Queen - owning the open sea!
     or I could Hop around... like a bunny!
         or I could be Josie - purrrring as The Pussy Cat's do!

or maybe I should clean it up...

I'd love to know what YOU think!

Wait a Minute

Do you ever feel like you spend a large amount of your life waiting?
Waiting for the train, waiting for the weekend, waiting for right time. . .waiting for life to begin.

Waiting_in_repose_with_texture_3 Well, stop waiting! If you don't than you look back on your life and feel like you missed it. Remember life is happening right now. In front of you, beside, behind you. . .
All around you.

Join in!

I recently found myself looking forward to spending time with a particular person and found that much of my day (though busy with activities and fun, productive tasks) was spent daydreaming about the time we'd get to spend together once the day was over. And when all the waiting was for naught -- because at the end of the day, the day was over. And we didn't get together -- I felt desperately let-down.

But it made me think about what I would be doing with my creative energy if I wasn't just waiting. I'm not a waiter (I don't serve you food) and it's generally in my nature to take an active role in determining where I want my life to go. And take the necessary steps to make things happen. 

While I was waiting, I realized that I had been letting life live me, instead of deliberately living my life.

I'm not saying we shouldn't day dream - greatness comes from imagination, dreams and visions - I'm just saying don't miss the opportunity to move your life forward. You don't want to be left behind because you're waiting for something better. Use those daydreams to make each moment a magical experience.

Although there are times it's restful to simply let life take it's course, resting for long creates lethargy and a feeling of being trapped. It makes us forget that we have the power, the control to determine every detail of our lives.1994e

So, remember you're in charge of your life direction. You can have and do anything you put your mind to. If you don't believe me than try what I do and see if I'm wrong. . .

Stop waiting and live a deliberate life.
