Another Bust for #Reverb10

Prompt for Dec. 9: 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. (Karen Walrond)

Oh, Lord have's another prompt that makes me want to give up on my commitment to participate in #Reverb10.

What on earth am I going to say about how I'm different and how those things "light people up" without this post sounding dumb, trite and/or nauseatingly self centered? Whatever I think makes me "different" could be said by jillions of other people and therefore is nothing unique. I'm totally missing the point of this prompt, I guess.

I'm bagging out again; strike 2. If tomorrow's prompt is another dog, I may have to re-think my participation in #Reverb10.  My time is better spent reading how fellow bloggers have tackled Karen's prompt rather than inventing some drivel not worth reading about my inner beauty. Barf.

Apparently I'm not the only one feeling weird about this prompt. Check out this blogger's response.

  1. Wow, I had a good laugh reading this. I think Reverb is an awesome idea so I jumped in with both feet. I agree, though - I'm starting to wonder if it's for me and my blog. I just could not think of a way to respond to that post. Off to check out today's prompt...
