Okay, it's come to my attention that I start every blog post with the word "okay."
Okay, that's not my confession.
But I have one today. And it's sort of like that song in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat where the narrator says, "In his bed, Pharaoh had an uneasy night. He had, had a dream that pinned him to his sheets with fright."
Yeah, that's me. Not so much a dream that's got me all freaked, but something else.
I'm going to confess, because a dear friend and I do Friday Night Confessions every week. FNC we call it. We also have RTC's, but that's another blog post. (But mucho points if you can figure out what RTC stands for!)
Anyway, I'm going to confess something. But you must all remember that I'm not fishing for compliments or anything. That's one of the rules of FNC. We get to say our confession and the other one doesn't try to make us feel better or anything. (Okay, that's not a rule, but I just made it up so it's gonna be from now on.)
Are you ready?
My confession: I have this paralyzing fear that I won't be able to live up to what people think of me.
There. I said it. And not just in writing. In life. In work. In everything.
And I don't want you to tell me how awesome I am. That's what's making me feel all freaked out!
No. Instead, tell me your confession. I mean, your deepest, darkest fear. And not dogs. I mean, that's so not fair. I gave you the fear buried under my heart (although I am terrified of dogs).
So I ask: What are you afraid of? Like, really terrified of?
It's Friday. Confess. FNC, yo.
