I got this idea from Jennifer Pastiloff’s post yesterday. She featured a guest post by Elissa Wald, who had been asked on an application for freelance copywriting work, to tell her personal story in 100 words. (To read Elissa’s 100 word story, go to Jen’s web site, http://themanifeststation.net)
It got me thinking of what I would say in 100 words that could truly encapsulate and/or describe my life in so few words. I mean, I’ve lived 54 years and been through an awful lot. But I like a good challenge, so I gave it a shot. I am calling it my life story as opposed to my personal story. Here’s what I came up with:
My Life Story In 100 Words:
A happy, healthy, loving, kind, silly, adventure-seeking, funny, mostly intelligent, sometimes wildly irreverent, forward-looking spirit having a very human experience. Have faced many life challenges with grace, and survived. Have fought hard to stick around to see what happens next. Looking to make a difference in my life so that I am able, by example, to encourage others to do the same. Believe that one person CAN make a difference, and if we all live with this uppermost in our minds, think of the awesome transformation the world would see. Am ready for blessings that are no longer in disguise.
What do you think? Did I do it? Can you do it? I’d love to see what you come up with. Please leave a comment with your 100 word story.
