Your challenge is to take something intensely personal — the bits and pieces that make you YOU — and use them as a springboard for a post that makes a larger point and resonates with lots of other readers.
I’m not sure which of my parents I take after the most.
I am a 37 years old, you’d think I would have worked that out by now!
I took this random picture two days ago, after braiding my hair for the first time in 18 months.
My mother was beautiful when she was younger – stunning. However people always tell my younger sister that she looks like our mother.
Well, I have my mother’s nose, hands and feet.
I have my mother’s sense of humour and skin colouring.
I have my father’s stubbornness and tenacity
What do I see when I look at myself in the mirror?
Sometimes a frightened little girl
Sometimes a tough woman
Grey hairs that give away my age
A face that disguises my age
A smile that won me an award age four
A nose siblings would laugh at incessantly in our childhood days
An eternal optimist
A hopeful realist
