I Confess
 

I Confess was a discussion we had in the early days of MysteyNet. I thought it would be fun to bring it back and see how it goes.

You can confess your truest feelings here or just everyday things.

We are here to listen, so confess away.

The race is long, and in the end, it's only with yourself

I confess that Oscar Wilde had a good point when he said "Life is too important to be taken seriously." That goes for everything from toenails to elections! :-D

You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

I confess, I guess it all depends on what quality of life you want, Ann. And being sure you will be around to enjoy it. Our current situation is as serious as a heart attack.

I further confess that I think it is important to be informed and not base our decisions on emotion or pride. I'm crazy like that, LOL.

I confess - the world has been bothering me for years. I know, it sounds kind of funny, but I'm serious. I've been worried for a very long time about how our morals, as a country (I know it is everywhere but I will speak of the US only) have slowly been eroding away. I've been watching while we have priced ourselves out of living an ordinary one parent stays home, one parent works society. I look at my youngest daughter and wonder how she will ever be able to afford a house - never mind my grandchildren! We're killing each other at alarming rates and we want to take God out of every place we think he doesn't "belong". For a long time, I've felt we were headed the way of the great Roman Empire and all of the Empires who enjoyed practically leading civilization - in other words, for a big fall. Now we have this financial crisis. Terrorists could not have done a better job on our economy than we have done to ourselves.

I know that this is not something that is likely to happen - but the bizarre thought came into my head about us becoming so weakened that we could be ripe for invasion by some not very likable country! I wondered about myself and my patriotism and if I would be strong enough to stand for my country, no matter what - or would I cower and pretend to go along? I know how silly this sounds, but it really bothered me - because, unlike the Jews who had to face the holocaust, I've never had to live through anything like that - and I was not sure of what my answer would be! Just how strong could I be if I were tested?

I confess, even though I am pretty sure the answer is no (LOL) I wondered if anyone else has ever had thoughts like that.

I confess, that was a little deep, LOL. So, on a lighter note (no pun intended)!

I confess, we just re-did my kitchen and put recessed lighing in. We are trying to do our part and have replaced the incandescent bulbs with the new CFL's. I confess, I hate the light! First, you have to wait for the lights to come to full power and then, the light looks funny to me. Has anyone else switched over and what do you think of them?

For most of history, Anonymous was a woman--Virginia Woolf

I confess.. on your first post Fran, I have to say I've never thought things like that.

as for your second.. I have cfls in every lamp in my house, and in most of the over head lighting. I find no difference in them actually except in my electric bill, yes I did see a big drop in that probably $40.00 the first year I had them in. So I'm all for them, I'll never have any other type of bulb again.

I have CFL's in most of my lights. They are a tad bit different and for the most part they come on pretty quickly unless they are cold.
