If you know me, then you understand I never pass up a chance to get dressed up in a costume. There is something about sporting a fun wig, adding some flare to my makeup and getting decked out in a wacky outfit that gets my sassy juices flowing.
I remember one Halloween, my husband Scott and I were invited to a costume party put on by an association I belonged to. I threw on my biggest afro and oversized gold rimmed sunglasses, while Scott rocked an 80’s mullet. No one could figure out who we were and we had a blast dancing the night away mysteriously under cover, while people tried to unmask our identity.
Why is it so fun to get dressed up in a costume? Maybe because it is an opportunity to explore another side of ourselves.
We play so many roles in our life; mother/father, daughter/son, brother/sister, employee/employer, friend, hero, companion. The list is endless and can be daunting at times. In each, we wear a mask that defines our role.
Sometimes it is a relief to step outside of our norm and play a different character. Maybe one that does not align with our typical personality. It can be refreshing to be anyone you want to be. Ahh, I feel the weight lifting already!
Therefore, I invite you, on this special Halloween Eve, to explore your alter ego, get dressed up and play!
