Seems like there are people that are naturally good at and inclined toward wearing costumes at Halloween. I am not one of these people. Within me, there is a desire to be one of the costume type folks, but laziness or nature wins, and another year passes without exploring that version of myself. Is “nature” or “nurture” more responsible for creating this tendency in people? I don’t know that any of my siblings get into costume, but that may prove nothing, as we are the same in regards to nature and nurture. My daughters don’t go fully into costume, and I asked them tonight if they feel pulled to get more invested in dressing up for Halloween, and they both said that they would like to… But, I have not modeled that behavior. How easy is it to change? There’s a saying out there in the ether, promoted by Rich Roll: “Mood follows action.”

And, Bill Wilson’s version:  “You can’t think your way into right action, but you can act your way into right thinking.”
