A Masquerade Party and hiding behind sparkly facades

mindset | 0 comments

Helllooooo lovely!

Over the weekend I went to a masquerade party and while having all the fun at it, two things caught might attention about wearing those fancy masks:

🎭1. I couldn’t recognize the people {well, duh!}
🎭2. I got distracted looking at the sparkliness of the masks and not looking at the person wearing it

This was an intentional masquerade party, of course! Those were exactly the purpose and fun of it – to hide your face partially, dress up and be distractively sparkly.

Now stay here with me for a moment as we trace a parallel of this masquerade party in real life:

👉🏼 How many times do we “dress up” with our sparkly face covers, that shows half of us {or barely even that} and then we go through life, expecting to be seen and understood for who we are?

👉🏼 And then we go looking for the ones that are similar to us who are also, in their turn showing half of their faces to the world and giving a very sparky disguise so we get distracted by it and don’t pay attention to the real human underneath that?

It is scary AF to walk through life letting yourself be seeing fully but it must be done.

The deep connection we crave can’t come if we are not fully seeing.

The ones who are meant for us won’t find us.

As Shel Silverstein’s poem goes:

“She had blue skin,
And so did he,
He kept it hid
And so did she.
They searched for blue
Their whole life through,
Then passed right by —
And never knew.”

~ Shel Silverstein


✨Let’s drop the fear of being seeing as we are, with all the “good” and “bad” and let our full awesomeness come through no matter what!

It’s needed. Deep connections must be made. ♥️

Happy Tuesday, loves!
