"This adultification of Halloween is taking place in virtually every city in America. At bars. At restaurants. At movie theaters. Even at high-end gift shops. Like treats snatched from a trick-or-treat bag, adults have slowly been stealing Halloween from kids for years. Now it appears, grown-ups own the holiday." —Bruce Horovitz, USA Today
Do you have a plan for Halloween? Have you decided to hide out at home, hoping no little monsters ring your bell so you can have all that candy just for you? Will you be waiting for the night to finally be over because you're just not in the Halloween spirit?
I invite you to make a new plan for Halloween. This holiday is not just for kids and their parents anymore. Halloween is a great opportunity for you single ladies to indulge yourselves. It's a time to play dress up and enjoy stretching yourself out of your comfort zone.
I invite you to use this holiday as an excuse to walk on the wild side; get in touch with your secret self. This hidden part of you will create its own sense of mystery that will draw men to you — and they won't even know why.
We all think we know who we are and these limiting ideas dictate how we show up in our relationships. But they're "shadow" parts to your personality that you don't express. If you don't get familiar with those parts, you won't be bringing your whole self into your relationships and you'll attract a man with the same limitation.
For example, if you're a woman who's quiet, introverted and who hates parties; your shadow self is going to be the opposite. She wants to put on a fancy dress, high heels and look glamorous. She wants to make an entrance that turns heads!
