I saw this question posed by Elizabeth Gilbert on Twitter.
Her answer: Eat. Pray. Love.
I did a brainstorm to find my 3 words and came up with these: Love. Grow. Purpose.
A week ago they sounded great. But when I look at them now, they seem too lofty and vague. Words that I’d use to impress people with, to make me sound deep and like I’ve made it. They are idealistic ‘should’ words, words that always tell me how far I fall short of them.
I don’t want these words to be hang so far above my head. So I’m rethinking my words to find simple, practical and true words that are right in front of me.
This is what I do all the time: Think. Plan. Oblige.
This is what I want to do all the time: Read. Write. Draw.
And this is what I believe and live right now: Learn. Create. Give.
When I put it all together I get this: I’m a thinker, planner and obliger who believes in learning, creating and giving and loves to read, write and draw.
Wow, I’ve found my true words.
