Day 23: What are you proud of but don’t talk about?

One of my problems is, I don’t shut up about stuff.

I kind of want to be able to blurt out everything (TMI) but also retain an air of mystery.

This is impossible, for obvious reasons.

So this prompt stumped me.

What am I proud of, but don't talk about?

I’m not honestly sure.

I don’t talk much about the fact I’m doing a Masters degree in Creative Writing, and I’m proud of that.

I don’t talk much about volunteering — creating and editing our local village magazine, and I’m proud of that.

Most other stuff, though, I blab about all the time.

So over to you: set a timer for 5 minutes and write about what you’re proud of, but don’t talk about. Then share it!
