Characters you say…. You mean I get to pretend to be someone else today?! I get to wear a hat that is not my own?! I can call myself by a name that is not yet known. Characters they say. The ones who crack jokes and take midnight tokes. They make folks laugh in the bars, and spend sleepless nights staring into the stars. Dreaming of wander and dreaming of being. Searching for a character of the night, but it is someone they are never truly seeing.
We’ve all got a story to tell. Will yours be told again?
That guy’s a character is what some folks may say. Characters can make you smile in many different ways. Many ways of being, and many directions to choose. We are all our own characters with so much to lose. So much to lose, and so much to gain. Nothing great ever came from just sunshine, there has to be a little rain. A little rain and a little thunder. Move that rock or never know what lies under. Try on a new hat, and try out a new game. There is more to life than just this fortune and fame.
Never lose what makes you you. Don’t be afraid to try something new.
Life’s about being, and living in the now. Play the character you want. When, what, why, and how. These characters all have smiles, but many have their tears. The tears hide behind their smiles, for many a years. The years keep on going and the characters keep on changing.
Keep on growing in life, try not to stay the same n’. Keep on going and don’t forget to change your hat. Take a quick look in the mirror if you ever doubt what you are looking at. You are still there, and you will always be you. I’m not saying you should change yourself, just adapt a different hue.
Keep on going and you’ll find your way.
