Things I'm Afraid to Tell You
After reading a posting on Penelope's Press, I decided to participate in a little sharing experiment. At the end of each school year, I tend to be very introspective, and a little uptight over how the year turned out. This often leads to some frank discoveries. So, here is a little insight into the less obvious part of me.
- I waste a lot of time. Internet, TV/netflix, etc. If I was a little more focused, I know I could be more productive as an artist and a teacher.
- I often feel un-original. I don't know how to access the inspiration for new ideas.
- I have been teaching 13 years, and still cannot consistently figure out classroom discipline.
- I am a Christian. My goal is to bring glory to God, but often, I only find ways to glorify myself. I am afraid that sharing this will either bring rejection of my work, or judgment because I don't measure up.
- I get distracted from making art by hoarding and repairing equipment related to making art.
- I wish I was as successful as some of the people I went to college with.
- I doubt my abilities to motivate students to create and enjoy artwork.
- I still miss my sister all the time.
- How people speak about cancer influences my opinion of them.
- I don't give in and play with my kids as much as I wish I did.
What are you afraid to tell the world.
