#Reverb10 Day 7: Different

Prompt: Beautifully different. 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.


No individual factor makes me different. Most of my individual characteristics exist in almost everyone. It's the mix, the ways that experience and learning have shaped my characteristics, how they play together, the degree to which they are "strong" in my nature, and what I do with them that makes me different in spite of myself.

I am (among other things):
Extreme
Tenacious
Assertive
Excitable
Shy
Determined
Pragmatically spiritual (or Spiritually pragmatic?)
Intense
Distractable
Confident
Creative
Open (trying)
Dithery
Critical
Impatient
Easily embarrassed
Soft-hearted
Appreciative
Dogged optimist, even when it takes me awhile
Seeking the common
Frustrated
Ranting
Verbose
Subtly playful
Ironic
Quick
Deeply caring
Wistful
Selfish
Whiny
Fragile
Filled with doubt
Powerful
Loving
Literal
Adaptable
Principled
Maverick
Silly
Impassive
Compassionate
Universal
Individual
Mom
Me
