Hush - Masks

Yes, I put up a new fall-ish layout. After Halloween the pics will change to something november-ish, and the rest will probably stay. Maybe. I've had this done several weeks, just thought I would wait it out till closer to the end of October. It still barely feels like fall here, except that the weathers in the 80s instead of the 90s or 100s. Somedays it is still cool enough to wear jackets :)

I am going to do the October topic for the collab, Hush. The topic is New topic for October: Masks. The masks you wear or those of others. the time you revealed what was really behind yours.

Masks. This topic reminds me of youth group, or a youth retreat, or something back from early high school. Freshman year. I remember we talked about what different masks we wear, and how we don't always reveal our true selves. I am so guilty of this, more so pre-children than now. I believe there are different ways to approach this topic. I feel that I am wearing a mask when I don't speak up for something I believe in when the opportunity arises. I am wearing a mask when I pretend to be someone I am not (one of those high school things), or when I just let people believe I am one way, when I really am different. When I don't act like myself. I wear masks, or labels, of mother, wife, daughter, friend, html-er(made up word), shy, non-confrontational... This list goes on for me, as it does for everyone.

I think that sometimes masks are good and stuff. It really depends on the situation, and how you are using the whole topic of "wearing a mask" Sometimes, as you get to know someone, you have to peel off your "masks" one layer at a time so they can get to know you. The internet can be a useful tool to be someone who you are not. Or, in some cases, to start to learn to be who you are. Like a turtle slowly coming out of his shell.

Want to share your thoughts on Masks? Leave me a Note or maybe join the collab, and give your input on the topics every month. I find it a lot of fun.
