The other day Sir and I were talking about Halloween and what costume he may want to craft for himself this year. In passing I said I never really do dress up for it, his response was swift, “you dress up every day as someone else.” There is so much truth in that statement.
This got me thinking about the masks we all wear. Yes, I project an extremely vanilla and ‘pure’ if you will façade when going to work or if I am in mom mode. When I am with my Sir or going out to sing karaoke, my façade is very different. When I go out to sing I like weather my collar, leather jacket and leather top with my black jeans. If possible I like wearing my red heels. This is my wild side. When in private with my Sir my attire is a smile and collar.
I’d like to think they are all apart of who I am and blend together to make a whole me. There are days I would prefer to be more in sassy mode than mom mode. It does sneak in here and there, my large tattoo on my calf is not something I hide in m
om mode. When I am at work I do try to keep it covered as an employee in a conservative industry it is somewhat important to maintain a bland façade.
The one consistency is, I hope, that my personality and values come through regardless of façade or mask.
Just been rattling around in my head, thought I would share. Enjoy and stay true to yourself!
