SHARING TODAY’S TOPIC ‘I Broke It’
A broken plate, a broken bone, a broken record, or even being broke. Tell us about a time you broke something, and what repercussions you faced.
NEXT TOPIC APRIL ‘Faking It’
Have you ever inflated your credentials to land a coveted job, told a silly lie to save face in front of a new acquaintance, or felt well and truly out of your comfort zone when you tried something new?
Perhaps faking it helped you gain the experience or tools necessary to bring about real change, whether you were pretending to the world or just deluding yourself.
How did you feel at the time, and how do you feel about it now? Did your fakery ever get found out? Did you surprise anyone, even yourself?
