Day 18 Review

Yesterday’s question was: “What Matters Most To You?“. (Read the responses.)

What matters most to me? For sure, growing and helping others to grow is the most important thing to me. It’s after all my life purpose. :)

My parents matter a lot to me too. They are the ones who brought me to this world and cared for me, even till this day. There wouldn’t be a me today if it wasn’t for them. And even though we don’t communicate much, that doesn’t mean we aren’t important to each other. We express our love to each other differently than most do.

My goals and dreams matter a lot to me. Pursuing them is part of living my life to the fullest. I defend them fiercely from anyone or anything that gets in the way. To hold me back from pursuing my goals is akin to locking me in a cafe and taking my life away from me.

People matter a lot to me. While this is probably obvious given my life purpose, it became apparent during my travels. I found that no matter what country I was in, it wasn’t the sites or sights that excited me. It was meeting new people, getting to know them, and making meaningful connections. To me, knowing someone new is an adventure. I would much rather do that than check out some building or rock which plays no role in my life and which I will probably never see again.

When I’m hanging out with someone, I like to know about their background, understand their motivations in life, and absorb everything they have to share. I feel there’s always something to learn from everybody – it’s like we’re each a walking encyclopedia, except that we’re more powerful than an encyclopedia because we have the ability to think and synthesize thoughts.

Love matters to me. I think to live a life with no love is akin to not having lived at all. Love is what sets apart living beings from non-living things. Love is the most powerful force in all of universe. History has shown, time and again, of how people are able to accomplish things greater than themselves, driven by love – be it love for a certain cause, love for other beings, love for the world, love for anything. (By love, I mean all kinds of love, and not just romantic love.)

With that said, let’s now move to today’s question!

21DJC Day 19

Today is the 3rd last day of 21DJC, and the 3rd last question of the challenge. Today’s question is:

What Words Best Describe You?

What Words Best Describe You?

If you are to describe yourself, what words would you use? And why? (Feel free to cover anything from physical appearance, to your character traits, to your values and life beliefs.)

(Today’s question can be found in #6 of 101 Important Questions To Ask Yourself In Life. For those who have Personal Excellence Book Volume 1, read Discover Your Values, where you get to uncover your values via a simple exercise.)

Put on your reflection cap and let your thoughts flow. Below is an empty form which you can use to write your answers to the question. Treat it as your private 21DJC journaling “room”, if you will. You will be seeing this form every day, for the 21 days of the challenge. There’s a button for you to keep track of your word count too, if you’re interested.

(Note you will not see the form below if you’re viewing this in your email client. Visit the actual post online to see the form.)

What Words Best Describe You?

Your Task Today:

    I am open-minded and big-hearted. I think that says the most of it.

    Often going from one extreme to another, no matter how contradictory it might seem. I’m too hard to be labeled and “don’t judge a book by its cover” certainly applies in my case. Most people say I’m different. (or weird, depends on their tone)
    Quiet and introverted. Witty and spiritual. Compassionate and passionate. Shy and insecure. Loyal and trustworthy. Good listener. Interesting and intriguing. Petite and childish. Innocent and sensual. Addicted.

    Constantly improving. :)

  2. Strong-willed, and sometimes downright stubborn.

    Busy: I always have things to do. I do not like to sit still for long, unless I am writing. I like to have things to do, though those things can be at home.

    It’s hard to describe myself. I know what I think I am, but I wonder if others would describe me the same way. I’m compassionate, I’m hardworking, I’m a wife and mother, I’m a nurse, I’m a Catholic, I’m middleaged, I’m blond, I’m a good friend, I’m easy to talk to, I’m reliable, I’m trustworthy, I have integrety, I’m a pretty good cook/baker, I’m interested in a lot of things, and the list goes on and on.

    First of all Unique, intuitive, intelligent, witty, beautiful, friendly, spiritual, funny, social, interesting, growing, positive, happy, and definitely Undesirable with words like all of us…

    Since we are multi-dimensional, layered spiritual beings and language is to poor to actually communicate to each other i think that is absolutely impossible to describe oneself.

  12. Bryan says:

    The best words that describe me are caring, devoted and deep. I really care about my friends and I try to be supportive in some way or form and while it may not always be obvious i do worry over my friends when drama happens or something in their life goes on. It takes a lot of time to develop the quality but i realized i enjoy knowing i care for the well being of my friends family and sometimes people i meet. Perhaps its a bit naive but I do like it.

    I am devoted to my friends but also to my goals and aspirations. Right now I am working on a few goals and I try to see to their completion even though one of them may take a few months to complete. In the long run i feel this is one of the qualities that helps me become a better person as I try to pursue my ideal self and try live the life i can be proud of

    many people have considered me deep and insightful though I think it is because of the time i spend reflecting and learning about myself and the world. It is a bit far off to consider myself deep but I do see where my friends see that from. sometimes or perhaps a lot of the time i would joke around but i know that i would try to learn more about myself and try to understand what goes on in life and in the world. i think that would help a lot in understanding myself

    What words best describe me?

    Diligent – I never give up on my goals.

    Introverted – Because I can be shy.

    Funny – Because I have a good sense of humor

    I guess I could right a giant list but these three are the first words that came to mind and I think they are accurate.

    What words describe me best? Well I’ll start with the negative and then end with the positive:) I am lazy, a procrastinator, illliterate and ignorent in religion and politics. But I am also loving, caring, sensitive, emotional, focused, fun, happy and excited:) that should do it.
