Ok, I have to admit the whole concept seems a bit ego-centric – like something a desperate housewife would do – oh that’s why I did it:) – but writing 25 things about yourself is actually very therapeutic. I’ve resisted doing it over the last month or so when prompted to on Facebook, but finally gave in. I did it this morning and the ch allege was coming up with the first 5 and then really deciding what defines you. I think I could have kept going, but had to pick and choose (mostly because of my audience – not that its huge – just impressionable).
My point is not for you to really care about who I am, but evaluate who you are. Go ahead and define yourself (as much as possible on paper/cyberly) and get perspective. It was strangely freeing for me. I think “I” get so lost in the everyday, that I forget who I am. I don’t mean it in a cheesy “I’ve lost myself in my life and I need to find me again” sort of way, but in a genuinely real and reflective manner. Have fun
