Building a Mystery

I read a great article on the Darling Magazine website yesterday.  Here’s the link:

5 Ways to Cultivate Your Mystery

This was perfect for me because I’ve always wanted to be that woman with the elusive allure.  The one that you can’t quite crack.

Alas, I was born to be an open book.  What you see is what you get.  I not only wear my heart on my sleeve, but I always feel like I have to talk.  I reveal too much because I like to fill the silence.

I also have this foolish notion that if I overshare, people will like me more.  It’s a curse.

On the flip side, I have learned over the years to be more selective.  There are dark corners that are still very much hidden.  I pick and choose depending on the person because different people can handle different things.  It’s unfortunate that you can’t be yourself fully with everyone.

I also have my private world.  The one I escape to in my mind when I need to daydream, to muse, to creatively construct worlds and scenarios to feed my storyteller.  This, no one gets to see.  This, no one would completely understand.

So, I guess that’s my mystery.  If someone cares to wonder about it, I welcome their investigation.
