So, somewhere I saw a post someone did based on secrets. For some reason this really got to me...maybe because I'm not all the way comfortable sharing all of my secrets with my journal. I still have the fear someone, someday will read it and then they will hate me. Or, people will realize what a sham of a person I really am. I smile when I don't want to, I laugh when I want to cry, I lie when I should tell the truth, Etc., Etc. I'm sure this is pretty common - but, this piece symbolizes a secret I've been, I'm giving myself permission and reassurance that when I tell this secret, it will be spread...therefore, it's o.k. to keep it. For those of you that know me, it's nothing major and not meant for public consumption so, don't worry. It's not about you, or us, or someone you know - it's just about ME.

I'm pushing myself to try drawing again more and more. I used to really love drawing, but had very little confidence in my abilities. So, since I'm gaining more and more confidence (thank you, ladies and thank you, my dear heart, Erik for being my biggest fans!!) I'm going back out of my comfort zone and working on drawing a bit more. I hope you like. :)

Courage and trust. May those receiving your secrets respect your secret sharing. Great drawing!

Wonderful page. Everyone has a secret part of themselves. We should. We are each unique and yet always changing. Your journal doesn't have to be a tell all book. It's a place to explore anything YOU want. I like to keep mine with happy things to share, sometimes deeper thoughts but I leave out sad and mad mostly. That's just me. I want my grandkids to look through it and enjoy it so I always keep that in mind.
