There's no better day than today to embrace your dark side. It's been a long journey for me in getting to know mine... understanding her in all her glory and loving her as much as the light.
Yet, the other day, I caught myself in a swirl of thoughts, contemplating, "Am I an optimist or a pessimist?" Yes, these are the things I think about when left to my own devices.
However, I finally asked myself a wiser question....why do I need to fit into a box? Why do I need to belong to either camp, when in reality I am both.
I am a cheerleader and a doomsday prepper, I am as sweet as pie and a total freak, I can be completely selfish but also "be there when it really counts" (thank you Annie).
We work so hard on advocating against society and others labeling us when often times, we are our own worst labeler. Let's end that today, on All Hallows Eve...when the veil between the dead and the living- the dark and the light...is the thinnest.
Let's embrace our shadow so that we're no longer afraid of her. Because, only then, can we begin to understand our wildest nature.
Happy Halloween Wild Ones.
