I love Halloween. Or I used to. Now I like, like Halloween. As a kid, Halloween was a bit creepy with those plastic masks. Do you remember these?
Boy, we were big on full on non-breathable masks back then. While creepy, they were still fun. In New York, for certain neighborhoods, you would trick-or-treat in the corner stores. And, you had to unmask so you wouldn’t be able to double dip on the treats. Halloween was fun and daring.
These days it seems we are more scared than fun and daring during the season. Maybe I’m wrong. I could be very wrong. Perhaps my worldview is tainted by all the “scary” things I’ve seen this and last year. But it seems to me we need to be giving shots of courage and maybe some valium to a few around us.
I think this Halloween is the perfect time to be bold. Not just with one’s active but with one’s decisions. Reflect on and reject that which makes you fearful. Take a few leaps of faith.
