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.
What makes me different? Different from whom? I find this an incredibly odd prompt, if for no reason that it isn’t even really open-ended, which has bothered me all day. In fact, it’s possible that I disagree with the entire premise of this prompt, which makes it incredibly difficult to write. Great start, huh?
What makes me different? I am very sarcastic…I have a great sense of humor and love making jokes. I have a huge smile and I love to laugh. I’m tall. Are any of those things different?
Sometimes I think the things that make me different are actually less than beautiful. I can be caustic. I often think too highly of myself and my intelligent and look down on people. I often feel that my intelligent separates me from other people…and that is hardly a beautiful thought. I’m moody…I’m a good liar…
Do I seem combative? I feel combative (is that different?). That’s two days in a row I’m not doing well with these prompts. This project is bringing out some very negative feelings in me!
