I'd never thought about a one word description of myself...maybe a one word description for a few other people, but that's another story and another blog post.
Last night I watched a reality show on TV, and the host asked a contestant what ONE word described her. Got me thinking! And before I knew it, the memory of my brother telling me I was 'strong' resurfaced. I hadn't thought about it for years, and his comment was made during a time of sadness in our family at the loss of our Mother. Strong? Me? I certainly didn't feel it at the time, but I realize now how strong I am. After going through memories of some terrible tragic events and the stresses of running a business, I find that I have been a strong person all along, without recognizing that trait in myself. Now, that I have acknowledged the word, I consciously need to live that word as my mantle that I hope to pass along to other family members.
Maybe one of my family members will adopt 'strong' as their word to live by during difficult times.
So, what is YOUR word? Are you Adventurous, Courageous, Spiritual, Steadfast, Honest, Compassionate, Driven? I'd like to ask for Likes and Comments. I'd love to know your 'word'.
What is your word?
