An Ode to Halloween – So who do you think you are?

In speaking to a friend of mine from the UK about this very American festive time she reminded me that I was not always this busy business- HR professional.

There was a time I wrote about life in prose!

She got me reflecting whether we all sometimes lose the “fun in life” in getting on with the “business of life”.

So here is my Ode to Halloween.

So who do you think you are and what is it that you do,

And this life you lead, who is it really for.

So who do you think you are and is there time for those you love,

Or is your life full of purpose and simply full of stuff.

So who do you think you are and are you giving your very best,

Or are you simply giving others what is left.

So who do you think you are as your life meanders by,

Will you remember yourself as a child, the parties the costumes and unbridled fun?

So who do you think you are at this time of Halloween,

When you look into the giggling faces of those who say trick or treat and really want candy.

And who would you say you are if life asked you the same?

Dedicated to all my friends, those who now in my life, those from my past, and to those who I have yet to meet.

I've decided to pursue my passion in jewellery designs since I love femininity and all things beautiful and sparkly, well almost all. I'm a proud mother to two gorgeous and amazing girls. I recently left the corporate world, went through a tragic loss and relationship breakdown yet I'm here alive and still very much wanting to pursue my dreams and maintain a state of happiness. This site opens up a new world for me to share and if I'm really privileged connect with with others.
