Today's reverb10 prompt, from the immensely talanted writer and photographer, Karen Walrond:
Think about what makes you different and what you do that lights people up. Reflect on all the things that make you different – you’ll find they’re what make you beautiful.
This prompt has been in my mind all day. And as much as I would like to go on and on about what makes me beautifully different – I can’t think of anything. I know this is horrible – but I am way too self-deprecating to even pretend that I can list things about myself that “light people up. Getting to that point in your mind, feeling that level of self-worth – is something I think, at least for some people (including, clearly, me), that takes a lifetime to achieve.
I don’t hate myself or anything. I know I must have so.
me qualities that make people like me – perhaps make them think I’m different, in a good way – I have lots of friends who seem to want to hang out with me, so I understand I’m not terribly offensive or anything (at least, not to everyone). : )
I hope this is the only reverb10 post that I can’t answer. Frankly – it makes me kind of sad. Especially because I love Karen Waldron’s writing so much – and her new book, “The Beauty of Different,” is currently on my Amazon wish list.
I could list tons of reasons why I think YOU are beautifully different – I just can’t do it for myself.
(wow, what a “woe is me” response, huh?)
