Confession Tuesday

Typical me, I read about Confession Tuesday and think, This is a cool idea so of course, I want in. Then it hits me: Do I want you all to see me? I don’t mind letting you see what I’m comfortable showing, but confessing means revealing secrets, confessing my not so politically correct thoughts, risk being judged. Just how much of an exhibitionist am I? I mean confessing is akin to getting naked, isn’t it? I’m a lot of things, but I’m really not brave. I can spout off, but I bruise easily.

Well, whatever. I’m stuffing my anxiety in a hole that I will ignore(I’m good at this). I’ve decided on Tuesdays I’ll let you see my less than diplomatic side, peep my cynical self, hear my potty-mouth and I just might even rant.

Cool. The nice thing about Confession Tuesday is that you can say as much or as little as you want.

Can't wait to see what makes your list next week

it is a big decision in blogging what to say and what not to say. in my expressive arts training, we try to make the distinction between what is personal and what is private. you share "personal" stuff and keep private stuff private. everyone draws the line in a different place.

so glad you're doing this in a way that works for you. a confession can be anything you realize about yourself!

Thanks polkadotwitch,

That was my thinking. I don't do well with lists either. If I'm going to fess up, reveal myself, this format works better for me.

By the way, I enjoy reading your blog. Glad you came by.
