I appreciate all the seasons, I really do. But if I had my way, it would be Halloween every day of the year (and no, I love it so much that it wouldn’t get old. Halloweentown 365? Sign me up!)
So I tend to buy Halloween-ish decor all year round…it just happens to be a whole lot easier when retailers jump on board. I not only don’t know what to do with myself because I want ALL of it, but I try to enjoy every moment of full-on Halloween before Thanksgiving and Christmas ruin the party. Damn you, turkeys and Santa… Give me at least a *small* window to grieve!
Hilarious. And so true. . .
Not your every-day Sesame Street… But…probably the real deal behind the scenes!

There are a thousand reasons why this idea should be prized. . .
Words have power and sometimes it is better to remain silent, lest ignorance, impatience, anger, or inability to understand cause more harm than good.
Sounds easy. . .but. . .it isn’t. It’s a life-long pursuit to manage the gift of language we’ve been given. Sometimes nothing feels better than sharing, commenting, responding, speaking. . . But a lot of times silence is a wiser, if not kinder, response.
While I am a long way from mastering the skill, it’s a good reminder that there’s a time and a place to use the gift of speech. Before engaging, thinking is often a great idea.
So much black to choose from!
Whether or not it’s the “right thing” to not want affirmations from others, I’d be lying if I said it didn’t matter to me – I’ve always valued language, and kind verbal expression, whether from friends, family, coaches, training partners, even a purr from the boys!
Words, to me, are a huge deal, and I will always take them at face value, even when also internalizing the context, the non verbal cues, and the motivations behind them.
Like this pup, a sweet word can really light up my day. This lil guy is precious all around so I’d be showering him with “you’re so adorable”s all the time. . .in which case we’d definitely have the “after” effect regularly. ❤
As for my Keku and Musashi…food (or specifically shrimp) seem to have more of an effect than my “gooooood boyyyy!”s! Can’t win ’em all!
