If you were a dictionary entry…
…could you define yourself in seven statements?
What would some of your synonyms be?
Would you be a noun or a verb? Or some other kind of word…
I’d like to think I’m too complex to define in a short amount of space. You too. But really?
We do it all the time in the way we introduce ourselves (and others). We do it in our Facebook bios. We do it with the T-shirts we wear.
The word “love” is in the dictionary. You and I agree the definition hardly captures what it actually means, but we still use it. Because it’s our best guess, our best try, at succinctly describing what that word is all about.
Why not try to do the same for yourself? It’s crazy difficult, but a lot of fun too.
And if you try it, do your best for right now – don’t worry about creating a definition that will last forever. Like for words, the definition for you will change. That’s good.
