Your Inner Self

Went to a writing seminar yesterday. One of the class speakers gave us an exercise which consisted of writing on a large sheet of paper the first six words that came to mind to describe yourself. Here are the words that I thought about and which are important to me:

1. loyalty

2. caring

3. privacy

4. dreams

5. travel

6. family

I'm sure these aren't the only ones that are important to me, but they are some of the top ones.

Here's why:

Loyalty to yourself, to your faith, friends and family. To me, the word speaks of what a person is when he can be called loyal.

Caring is something that comes from deep inside one's self yet it extends beyond self to others. It's a gentleness and concern that is a strong trait of personality.

Privacy is a valuable commodity. It's a place where you feel safety and peace and strength and strong.

Dreams. What would we do without them? Who can really live without a dream--whether small or large, one or many? It gives us something to strive for. Something that makes us look beyond our own little world.

Travel is a fun thing for me. It can be tiresome if used too much or incorrectly, but in its place, experience and knowlege can be gained.

Family. You can't value them too much. Those who have none, wish for it. Those who grumble about them, fight for them when push comes to shove. There's something to be said for knowing that there's always a blood link, always some one to turn to when the chips are down.

Quick: off the top of your head, write six words that are important to you. Then think about it. Why are they?

Have fun!
