The One Word Meme…


I’m full of mischievous sniggering this week 😉

The wonderfully “creative”ly talented blogger Chris at Thinly Spread tagged me on this meme, then a few days later the nuturing “committed” Julia from What Will Julia Do Next? did too… Well, I’ve got to do it then haven’t I *quakes*

The idea is you write one word in the comments which you feel aptly sums up me… Now you can see why I’m quaking.

In the words of the meme’s creator Michelle from Mummy from the Heart

“This got me thinking about an email I received a few years back, one of those circular things that I normally hate but this one I loved and have never forgotten.  It was about the power of positive affirmations and how knowing what positive things others think of you can boost your own self-esteem.  It talked of an inspirational teacher who got all her children to write one positive word down to describe the other children in the class and then they had to hand them in.  The teacher then collated all the positive words for each child into a special sheet for them and handed it to them to read and keep.  They learnt that their peers saw them in ways they had never imagined and it had an immense effect on them.  The story goes that one of them died and a number of them attended the funeral and it was found that they all still had their lists 20 or so years later as they had been really touched by this loving gesture.  Did this really happen?  Who knows, but I love the sentiment of this story and therefore it does not matter to me if it was real.

Well, what about if us bloggers and virtual friends did something similar?  How marvellous would we all feel to learn these new facets of ourselves that we did not know existed.  Someone may say I am inspirational (another one I have heard about myself a few times recently) and me being me I would say ‘no not me’ but what have I done there?  Rubbished their opinion and that is not right, only they know if I have actually inspired them to do something.  If people are kind enough to give us a compliment we should be gracious enough to accept it…. and why not go one step further and actually go out and ask for it?

Well that is what I want us all to do.  I am creating a meme, called the 1 Word Meme and I would love for every one of us to be able to collate all the positive words left by our real life friends, virtual friends and fellow bloggers so that we each have a sheet of positive affirmations to treasure and boost our self-esteem.”

So, here we go.. play nice and leave a word, any *clean* word you like which sums me up… and as per I get to tag some other bloggers to do this so I pass this task onto

Gemma from Hello it’s Gemma!

Kerry from Life through a Sippycup

Sian from Fishfingers for tea

Julie from The Sardine Tin

 

So.. Get to it, everyone is welcome.. Unleash the insults compliments… I will help you start off…

Julie from Allaboutus is………………..
