05:43 am: 30 Days of Truth
I thought I'd finally tracked down the source for the 30 Days of Truth writing prompts, but Singed Wing Angel led me to Homesick Cajun,on whose site the search led to... nothing.

So I don't know where these originated. But I'm gonna try 'em. Not 30 days in a row (heaven help me), but maybe... Wednesdays at noon. Or I'll try for that (I'd check my calendar for whether that works, but that'll get me back into the endless email spiral, so I'm just gonna hope).

Anyway, the point is to use the writing prompts to write truthfully about sometimes difficult topics. I may cop out on some, or make those posts private. Dunno. But Brené Brown has made me think again about needing to make myself vulnerable, then Chookooloonks tweeted about Sarah and the Goon Squad's day 8, and, well...

:gulp: here I am.

These are the days:
Day 01 → Something you hate about yourself.
Day 02 → Something you love about yourself.
Day 03 → Something you have to forgive yourself for.
Day 04 → Something you have to forgive someone for.
Day 05 → Something you hope to do in your life.
Day 06 → Something you hope you never have to do.
Day 07 → Someone who has made your life worth living for.
Day 08 → Someone who made your life hell, or treated you like shit.
Day 09 → Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.
Day 10 → Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.
Day 11 → Something people seem to compliment you the most on.
Day 12 → Something you never get compliments on.
Day 13 → A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days. (write a letter.)
Day 14 → A hero that has let you down. (letter)
Day 15 → Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.
Day 16 → Someone or something you definitely could live without.
Day 17 → A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.
Day 18 → Your views on gay marriage.
Day 19 → What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?
Day 20 → Your views on drugs and alcohol.
Day 21 → (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?
Day 22 → Something you wish you hadn’t done in your life.
Day 23 → Something you wish you had done in your life.
Day 24 → Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)
Day 25 → The reason you believe you’re still alive today.
Day 26 → Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?
Day 27 → What’s the best thing going for you right now?
Day 28 → What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
Day 29 → Something you hope to change about yourself. And why.
Day 30 → A letter to yourself, tell yourself EVERYTHING you love about yourself

See you at noon. I think.

Edited to add: Wednesdays at noon mostly don't work. Maybe Fridays? I'm still gonna try for today at noon, just to get started.

and... #fail. :sigh:
