Sunday List #28 - Secrets

One of my very favorite websites is Postsecret. If you've never checked it out, you should - go ahead, I'll wait!

Postsecret was started as a type of art project - people send in their anonymous secrets on a postcard, and every Sunday a new batch of secrets is published on the website. Well the idea took off, and has spawned several books as well as a traveling exhibit.

Some of the secrets are no big deal...and some are pretty major. Lots of secrets are sent in with the hopes that the 'one' person they are meant for will see them and respond. And I have to wonder how many people think (or want to believe) that the secret is meant for them...even if it might not be.

And so, for this Sunday's list, five secrets:

1. I have an overwhelming fear of failure. When I decided to go back to school it took me nearly 6 months to tell people - because I didn't want anyone to know in case it didn't work out.

2. I have dreams that are earily accurate. In the last six months I have dreamed about fires, deaths, pregnancies, jobs, and diagnoses - which have all come to pass exactly as I dreamed.

3. I can remember the strangest things in the most unbelievable detail. But remembering what I need to pick up at the store? Sometimes that is a major challenge.

4. I can be talked into doing almost anything.

5. I hate surprises.
