UBC Day 7 Secrets

Day 7 Ultimate Blogging Challenge


Oprah's 5th Question

A Deep, Dark—Shhh—Secret

The mystifying thing about secrets is that everyone around you has one, but you don't know what it is. What's the secret no one would suspect about you? And, as Martha Beck suggests, ask yourself, Does knowing this information make my inner life feel brighter or darker? 

Now why would anyone want to tell a deep, dark secret? Aren't secrets meant to be silent companions?

Didn't we make a pact with our friends, with ourselves that we never would tell?

So why then would I reveal mine?

Instead I will ponder on my deep, dark secret quietly. On whether it makes my life feel brighter or darker. That's assuming of course that I have one!  ;)

Whoever wishes to keep a secret must hide the fact that he possesses one. 
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

  2. Never reveal secrets to anyone. If done so it no longer remains a secret.

  4. How smartly you've dodged the question! ;) But anyway, if the secrets are dark they better be out as quick as possible lest they color our hearts...if they are bright, they must be nurtured to bring about the inner beauty :)

  11. I really felt like laughing when I read this. What you said is so true. Secrets are so called because they are secrets. They shouldnt be revealed if even one doesn't get a good prompt for writing a post :-) Well said :-)
