I took a risk the other day.
I forwarded an email to my friends that I had received.
It asked me, in one word, to describe that person. Then I was to forward it to my friends, asking them to describe me in one word. And it was supposed to cycle.
I received an answer back from about 75% of my friends. Some never bothered even answering.
Out of those who did answer, only 25% send it to me, to ask what word I'd describe them with.
I don't know what that means ,but I find that kind of interesting. Doesn't everyone want to know what people thing of them?
The number one repeated response was 'caring'. The number two answer was 'compassionate'. I had a 'beautiful', a 'loyal' and I had one that said eccentric!
My husband jokingly (?) said, "It means your odd." (Sigh).
So I decided to look up exactly what eccentric means:
"Departing from a recognized, conventional, or established norm. One that deviates markedly from an established norm, especially a person of unconventional behavior".
I have departed from the recognized, conventional, or establish norm. I have unconventional behavior and I love it! So I'm going to take it as a compliment (teehee).
Abraham Lincoln said something like this, it's not how many years we have to live, it's how we live in the years we have....
