Some time ago I came across this post asking, “How would you describe yourself in five words?”
Since I’ve been thinking about this little kid again and what she was like, I thought, “How would I describe young Ela in five words?” And would I describe myself the same way now?
I quickly wrote down the first thoughts that came into my mind: Defender, imaginative, book lover, risk-taker, and sensitive.
I would say that two of the five still hold true for me: book lover and sensitive. The other three, not so much, but I would like them to.
How would you describe the young version of yourself? And which of those descriptions, if any, still fit? Would you want any of them to still apply?
