The Sandbox Writing Challenge 9: What Would You Say About Yourself
Imagine wanting to impress this woman, what would you say about yourself?
HaHa….My immediate, first response in my head was why the hell would I want to impress HER?! So, I back- pedaled a bit and decided to give it some thought. If this was 25 years ago and I was on a job interview, obviously I would have to ‘sell’ myself as the right person for that job, impress her with my skills to prove I was the right person for that job. But it’s not 25 years ago……….
My response from the NOW ME is, I wouldn’t try to impress her, or anyone else for that matter. I’ve worked hard to get myself to ‘this place’. I work at being as good a person as I can be. I treat people kindly and respectfully. What I won’t do is pretend to be something I’m not just to impress someone…..I know not everyone is going to like me or get me, and I’m OK with that. More than OK! If you have to go against yourself in order to impress someone, they’re not worth the time or the energy. Life is way to short for that…..That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! 🙂
