Have An Enlightening Halloween

Halloween, as we are all well aware of, is a holiday in which we try our best to scare those around us with costumes and spooky decorations, and then proceed to pig out on all the leftover candy. If you think about it, our lives can be compared to this much anticipated holiday in the sense that as kids, we can’t wait for the thrill of getting scared during Halloween and the excitement of collecting as many sweets as possible. However, as we get older, we come to realize that we will faced with a lot more scares than we would like to imagine. Illnesses, accidents, losses, etc. will come into our lives when we least expect them and they will change the way we perceive life and the way we live each and every day.

No matter how hard we try to prevent something bad from happening, it is only a matter of time before an unexpected occurrence takes place and leaves us in shock and disbelief. We can let these bad situations result in depression and solitude or we can try our best to continue living life to the fullest and enjoying each and every moment given to us. I recently read a great book by Mitch Albom, titled “The Time Keeper,” and thoroughly enjoyed the following quote. “There is a reason GOD limits our days…to make each one precious.” There is no guarantee as to how many days, months, years, or even breaths we will have on earth. Our time here is limited, as is our time with those we love.

I hope you all enjoy your Halloween now that the end of October is among us, but really try and remember: Scares will happen to us throughout our lives; it’s just the way life works. However, sweets will always be within reaching distance, and that is truly up to us to take advantage of at any given moment.
