Have you ever held onto a secret that’s your own? Not something that someone else shared with you in confidence, but a secret that is all yours. I’ve been holding onto a secret for a little while now. It’s something that I haven’t felt ready to share. Something that makes me feel a bit vulnerable, although it’s something good. I’m finding that holding onto this secret is seeming to make it bigger. Like it’s starting to take on a life of it’s own. And it’s making me feel more and more vulnerable to share it.
I talked this over with a trusted confidant last night, and he helped me realize that what I need to do is spill. I need to shed this secret, take it out of the darkness, let light shine upon it. Letting this secret go, sharing it, will cease it’s looming life. Making it known will dispel the vulnerability because the sharing of the secret is an act of acceptance. It is simply stating what is and standing solid in that fact. It’s authentic and wholehearted. So I’m gonna share this secret…very soon.
