The Secret Garden.

Create your own secret garden - Maggie Steiber.

She talks about her projects and how in her life she has different personalities. One for each of her side. In conversations with her, she talks about the need for everyone to create a secret garden for themselves. A place where they can be themselves without judgment, without prejudice, without fear. A place where they can create whatever they want without holding back.

I never thought of that. I am always open about who I am and what I do. I've always thought that every part of me either good or bad is like an open book. I'm not a very dark person. I usually focus on the positive. I do get depressed sometimes but I always find a way to find something good at the end of the day. Being moody or dark is not something that clings to the core of my soul.

If I want to do it, I am usually not ashamed to admit it. I might be shy if people find out about it but I'm never afraid to admit it. People make mistakes and if your friends judge you harshly for it, maybe they shouldn't be your friends in the first place. The people that matter won't mind and the people that do mind won't matter right?

However, her talk has got me thinking... maybe there are certain aspects of my life I should keep hidden. I don't want to be happy all the time. I want to lash out, to be wild, to deliberately make mistakes, to persecute, to accuse, to judge and mainly to just be everything I try not to be. But HIDDEN. Maybe I should do that.

Then maybe I can find another side of me. The one where I didn't know existed. The one where I hid for so long I didn't know I could even be that person. Maybe it'll change the way I look at things again.
