On my last Find Your Passion Work call, a question came up that really struck me. It's simple, fun, and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it for days.
If you were a city, which one would you be?
My first instinct was Washington, D.C. I immediately rejected that because that's the city I live the closest to - it seemed like a cop-out to choose it. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized how perfectly D.C. describes me.
I give you me, as Washington, D.C.
I have a rich history, that deserves exploring many times over - I have stories that are worth buying tickets to hear, and some that are not so great - but they all make me who I am today. I'm strong, and confident, and while I grow and change my core values
are the same: loyalty, honor, equality, and the freedom to express
myself - even if someone disagrees with me.
I am sometimes loud and occasionally obnoxious, but I come from humble beginnings. I've struggled, but knowing I can live how I chose is something I will never take for granted.
I'm a bit of a chameleon. Just when you think I'm always serious, I surprise you with a bit of color and fun. (Business in the front, party in the back anyone?)
I'm a little bit political. I'm solid and I can be fierce. If you challenge me I'll bring you one
helluva fight and even if I lose, you'll remember the battle.
I will always be here when you need me. I'll remind you of memories you'd forgotten, help you find beauty in unexpected places, and just when you think life couldn't get crazier I'll give you a swift kick in the pants for perspective about what really matters.
I'm sturdy. I don't crumble under pressure, I thrive on it. I'm resilient and tenacious, and when push comes to shove I get things done.
