How would you do that?
Okay, here’s the constraint, try to describe yourself in just 2 or 3 words. Don’t think about your whole life because that gets confusing. Just concentrate on your state of mind at this very moment, NOW, and see what you come up with.
And of course let us know in the comments what you thought of, or else we’ll never know :-)
Above is a picture of Michael’s daughter from Flickr. I do not know Michael but when I came across this picture on Flickr while browsing, I instantly added him as a ‘contact’. Michael’s entire collection is great and there are tons of inspirational shots in his sets but this one touched me the most because of his explanation below this picture. It took me back to my childhood.
And I instantly felt sad, happy and calm at the same time.
I was sad because every time I think of my dad, I yearn to see him, talk to him and sometimes I listen to his messages on my cell phone voice mail.
I felt happy that he gave me a very enriched childhood, loved us all very dearly and supported us in everything we ever wanted to do.
I felt calm knowing that my mom is doing better. I was talking to a friend the other day who works in a public utilities company. She gets to hear from a lot of the clients on a daily basis about their problems. It was sad to know that so many of the older folk ( the ones in their late 70s or early 80s even) suffer because their water and/or electricity was shut off because they hadn’t been able to pay their bills. It’s really sad but that gave me a weird sense of calmness about my mother ‘coz things could have been much worse than they really are.
