The True Meaning Of Life

By Pat A. FlemingPublished: July 2017

The Years have passed by,
In the blink of an eye,
Moments of sadness,
And joy have flown by.

People I loved,
Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.

Life wasn't easy,
And the struggles were there,
Filled with times that it mattered,
Times I just didn't care.

I stood on my own,
And I still found my way,
Through some nights filled with tears,
And the dawn of new days.

And now with old age,
It's become very clear,
Things I once found important,
Were not why I was here.

And how many things,
That I managed to buy,
Were never what made me,
Feel better inside.

And the worries and fears,
That plagued me each day,
In the end of it all,
Would just fade away.

But how much I reached out,
To others when needed,
Would be the true measure,
Of how I succeeded.

And how much I shared,
Of my soul and my heart,
Would ultimately be,
What set me apart.

And what's really important,
Is my opinion of me,
And whether or not,
I'm the best I can be.

And how much more kindness,
And love I can show,
Before the Lord tells me,
It's my time to go.

In spook-tabular news, Kimberly J. Brown from Halloweentown has her own Etsy shop. The shop is called Craftily Creative and it’s filled with Halloweentown-themed things. If you ’90s kids can believe it or not, it’s been just over two decades since the Disney classic aired. And since our nostalgia can truly never be sated, this is very exciting news for us.

Brown spoke to Bustle magazine over email about the project. “I started he shop about 5 years ago with my good friend Liz because we loved crafting together on the weekends and thought we’d share some of our projects. It started with gift tags, greeting cards, and custom paintings with different quote, etc. Slowly people started requesting different quotes from Halloweentown on painted signs so we started carrying them in the shop.” One fan-loved quote from the movie: “Being normal is vastly overrated.”

Brown even turned the quote into a graphic tee! Craftily Creative currently has 35 items available, many featuring quotes from Halloweentown. She has also received a lot of love from fans. “Nw we get suggestions all the time and the sweetest notes from fans thanking us for making our stuff and telling us what the movies mean to them. I have really loved getting to create with the fans over the years in our shared love for the movies. It’s also a way for me to kind of pay homage to the fans and these films that have meant so much to me and another avenue for me to keep creating when I’m not filming and working so we’ll keep creating as long as the fans will have us.”
