Without going into a whole lot of detail, I had an appointment recently that I was given some “homework” (even as a grown woman the word homework makes me anxious!). This week’s homework:
What words would you use to describe yourself?
So, here we go…below are the words that come into my mind (I’m not supposed to over think this – I’m supposed to answer quickly, jotting down whatever pops into my head).
- sad (not always)
- athlete (I use that word ‘loosely’ – I haven’t been an athlete since high school but I enjoy playing volleyball and softball!)
- good listener
- shy (until I get to know someone)
- ‘backseat’ driver (ask my mom she’ll tell ya! lol)
- pessimistic (not always)
- quirky (I’m unique and certainly have some quirky things about me – like how I can’t stand bread crumbs in my butter or how the toilet paper has to go on the roll a specific way!)
Hmmm…I’m not sure I like a lot of this list! Kind of funny how so many words that popped into my head were ‘negative’. But, I did the assignment. Now I’m curious to see where we’re going to go with this at my next appointment. And I really hope that some day we’ll revisit this list after I make a new list that’s full of positives!
So, if you had to describe yourself to someone what words would you use?
