Daily Prompt: Secret


Today’s Daily Prompt was to write a post in response to the word secret.

Do you promise not to tell?  Of course, I promise, I won’t tell a living soul. 

How many times have you been told that only to have your dirty laundry or even your clean but private laundry shared all over town?  Why is it so difficult for people to keep a secret?

We love to know things and we also love to tell them.

There is something that makes us feel special when a secret is finally revealed and we can say with a big grin on our face, “Oh yes, I already knew that.”   This gives us the feeling that we were special enough to know it before others and I guess that’s true, unless there is a significant reason for your knowing.

Although I am pretty special, I had to keep a secret for my daughter recently and it was only to ensure that her friends and I could pull off the party and buy the appropriate supplies.

She made me keep a secret that was a tough one; the gender of her baby, who will arrive in June.  A few years ago I had never heard of a gender reveal party.  Now, they are THE trendy thing to do.  Creative people all over the world have figured out unique ways to reveal their secret.  We just did the pink candy in the middle of a cake, but I recently saw photos on Facebook of someone shooting pink paint balls and another where blue confetti burst out of a piñata.

Whatever type of secret you’re entrusted with, keep it.  Otherwise, you ruin your chances of ever being told another one, and that’s only fair.

“Debate thy cause with thy neighbour himself; and discover not a secret to another:” Proverbs 25:9


  1. I like to think I’m pretty good at keeping secrets, but I’m not so good at trusting other people with mine.
