Frozen in Embarrassment
Sometimes at parties “Get to Know You” games are played. I generally do not like these games. The one I despise is when they go around a circle and have you tell your most embarrassing experience. Really??? If I am going to tell you one thing about myself, why would it be something embarrassing?
I know embarrassing things can sometimes be funny in hindsight. I suppose that is what game coordinators are going for. There was once something embarrassing and funny that happened to me, and I told myself I needed to remember that so I had a story to tell. I have racked my brain for years to remember what it was. I don’t have a clue. Embarrassing stuff happens all the time – mostly because I’m and idiot. Case in point – this blog.
I am so embarrassed that I haven’t posted in so long that I am frozen – not in fear – but in embarrassment. Today I finally told myself to get over it already! So here I am.
I once heard a saying something to the effect of: Take the easy way out. Just do it! The point was that it is easier to just do something. The longer you wait, the harder it gets because you get so worked up about it. At first, there might be a real reason not to have done something, like not blogging because of being in charge of a quilt show and the kids being home for summer and mini vacations with the family. At some point it stops being a reason and turns into an excuse.
What do you do to break out of the “frozen” mode? Is there a secret pill?
P.S. The picture has nothing to do with this post. It is where I spent the 4th of July. I should tell you more about it another day.
