One word makes SUCH a difference!


OK, for all those ‘non-bloggers’ out there, a quick explanation, in the ‘blog world’, oh you may laugh, but believe me, it’s a WHOLE new world out there (always hear that song ‘whole new world’ and imagine myself flying around with Aladdin on his magic flying rug, I of course, take the place of Princees Jasmine, because, obviously), THUD! Back down to earth with one, and carries on explanation-other bloggers ‘tag’ you, and you are therefore obliged afterwards to do the particular blog you were ‘tagged’ in, and ‘tag’ others. So there you go. Today is one of those, although today, I write nothing, YOU guys tell me everything. I am laying myself out there, bare, wide and open (god, horrible mental picture) and in ONE WORD, yes, just one, you have to discribe me (please be gentle) well in fact, it’s carte blanche here, you may say whatever you want to descibe me in one word….So go on, get on with it then...

Here’s where it originated from, the lovely Mummy from the Heart who tells it like this…

This got me thinking about an email I received a few years back, one of those circular things that I normally hate but this one I loved and have never forgotten.  It was about the power of positive affirmations and how knowing what positive things others think of you can boost your own self-esteem.  It talked of an inspirational teacher who got all her children to write one positive word down to describe the other children in the class and then they had to hand them in.  The teacher then collated all the positive words for each child into a special sheet for them and handed it to them to read and keep.  They learnt that their peers saw them in ways they had never imagined and it had an immense effect on them.  The story goes that one of them died and a number of them attended the funeral and it was found that they all still had their lists 20 or so years later as they had been really touched by this loving gesture.  Did this really happen?  Who knows, but I love the sentiment of this story and therefore it does not matter to me if it was real.
Well, what about if us bloggers and virtual friends did something similar?
