Daily Prompt – You (Show Yourself)

Daily Prompt by michelle w. on January 17, 2014

Do you have a reputation? What is it, and where did it come from? Is it accurate? What do you think about it?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us YOU.

This prompt reminds me of the famous quote by Robert Burns:

“Oh would some power the gift give us, To see ourselves as others see us.”

Reputations are either bad or good or somewhere in-between and usually are judged from the outside, rather than inward of ourselves.  Those in our inner circles or outer circles hold the magnifying glass and judge us by what they perceive as character flaws or character values.  That’s a shame isn’t it?  For really, sometimes those judgments are misaligned and full of error.

Live by what your heart tells you and judge yourself, but be fair.  We’ve all seen the picture of a little kitten painting a self-portrait of himself and in his painting – a huge lion!

I think I have more courage when I write.  In person, I’m more like that kitten.

Do I have a reputation?  Oh I hope it is a good one!
