Excitingly Scared

Have you ever been so excited about something but at the same time nervous and scared?

A chapter of my life is about to complete and I am about to start another one. I am so excited for all the new possibilities it can bring me. There is always a catch to 'possibilities' though, don't you think? You have to set them into action yourself. You have to commit to those changes and you have to stick with them. I am nervous about failing myself and my expectations of myself. I'm also scared of the unknowns.

I am feeling stressed thinking about the work I will need to put into this month, and the changes to my life beginning the next. How I want to make all these changes for the better. Thinking about how I'll feel if I don't succeed in those changes.

However, as I stood in my room folding the clothes I have decided to keep but can do without for this next month, I decided to make myself a deal. Now, this deal is kind of strange, but stay with me here...

I have made a deal with myself to be positive.

Being positive makes me happy. So if I can do my best to stay positive through all these changes, no matter how stressful or frustrating life may get, then in the end I am still happy. Of course I'm still going to try hard and achieve all these goals I have for myself. I just don't want to dwell on what can go wrong. I want to focus on all the good things this change means for me.

So there you have it. Another Ramble from a girl named Nikki.

Too Transparent?

Hello all!

It's been a while since I've sat down to write a blog post. I got the overwhelming urge to type tonight and have a topic!
Here we go!

So the other night, someone asked me to tell them a secret about me. Which I was all too willing to do... until I realized that I don't really have secrets. I'm a very open person. I share things. Lots of things... and outside of really personal things that I wouldn't tell my own mother I don't have secrets.

The question that came to mind from this is "Am I too transparent?"

When I was a teenager, I would go into chat rooms online. Random ones, I think there used to be a site called Talkcity.org (?? I think) that I would go chat in! I loved meeting new people.
I loved 'playing' 20 questions. A 'game' in which people ask questions back and forth until they've both asked the other 20 questions.
I found that you can tell more about the person by the questions they ask then the answers to the ones you ask.

Then Facebook came along and not only did I get to share what I thought and was feeling, I got to read others doing the same!
Then Twitter came along. Oh Twitter, I like you a lot. You allow me to connect with people and read about what they are thinking and feeling in a short, 140 characters or less.

I love sharing about myself and, in turn, getting to know others! Human connections are the most valuable thing in my opinion.

As a society, have we gone too far? Do we let the world know a little too much? I personally think that the more we share, the more we learn.... what do you think?
